  • Triple Berry Crisp

    It’s been a couple of fast paced weeks but I would not change a thing. Work is fairly busy as everyone is preparing to take some time off for the holidays. I am still getting acclimated to all the parameters of the job. Addressing everyone’s expectations can be quite tricky at times but at the […]

  • Berries Sorbet & Lavender Shortbread Cookies Sorbet Sandwiches

    Since Winter never really got here, we are and have been in Spring like mode for quite a few weeks over here. Local seasonal produce has been changing rapidly. Peas are sprouting, winter squash are disappearing. Asparagus are in, wild blackberries and raspberries are popping out in by the marsh behind our house. Strawberries are […]

  • June, September & October Squam Food Photography Workshops, A Giveaway, A Ratatouille Tart & A Blackberry Cobbler

    The first time I heard about Squam Lake and Squam Workshops I said outloud “Ugh?”. That was last year. Now, when I hear those words, something inside of me lights up and I say “heck yes!” Squam is truly a magical place. A three day retreat put together by a group of talented women with […]

  • Mixed Berry & Lemon Verbena Pie

    One of the great redeeming qualities of the Spring and Summer heat in South Carolina is the abundance of berries and stone fruits. Every Saturday at the farmers market, I load up on local peaches, plums, and berries. I know berry season only has a few more weeks so I am baking, cooking, freezing blueberries, […]

  • Mixed Berries Sorbet with Vanilla Shortbread Cookies

    When I called my mother yesterday I had a burning question to ask her. As soon as we started talking, I completely forgot. I was outside on the deck and heard a plane over my head. Felt a cool breeze through the pecan tree and just sat there. It took me back to our chalet […]

  • Food Blog Forum Orlando & A Sangria Recipe!

    Hard to believe that just last weekend I was in lovely Florida teaching a hands-on photography workshop to a great bunch of bloggers or food enthusiasts. That Sunday was just the icing on the cake actually of an already darn good time in Orlando where I had come to speak at Food Blog Forum (FBF). […]

    Macaroon Tart. *******************GIVEAWAY ENDED APRIL 14TH************************************ Last night, as I was waiting for my flight in Orlando for my flight back home, all I could think about was the serving of Heidi’s Macaroon Tart awaiting me back in Charleston.

  • Berry Mousse and Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Verrines

    “Whatcha making?” Bill asked when he stepped into the kitchen area on Sunday. “My birthday cake” I replied, scraping the last bit of batter onto a sheetpan. He then pointed at the two bowls filled with strawberries and blackberries, the couple of lemon and the bottle of Limoncello. “Yes, yes, yes…all those for my cake”. […]

  • A Pavlova And A Guest

    It’s “Share Your Space Friday” here again!! I have never posted that much in a week and the fun part is that I only had to write an intro!! I am loving having guest bloggers and not only because it gives me time to frolic in the sun (ugh…no not really…!) but mainly because it […]

  • Blackberry Apple Galettes And Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

    Yesterday I woke up to the sound of my husband’s trombone and although he rarely rehearses at home it did not strike me as unusual. It felt nice actually. Deep, resonant notes, slightly muted as they came through the floor and walls. I immediately recognized the melody of “our” song, “Can’t give you anything but […]
