Parisian café

Bonsoir! It’s Friday and getting close to happy hour, so here’s a Parisian café scene to get us all in the mood for a frosty libation. I do miss the sounds of a lively and convivial café. This one is at the corner of Rue de Seine and Rue de Buci in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Cheers!

La Belle et la Bête

We now interrupt our regularly scheduled springtime weather to bring you a bit of meteorological magic!! There’s nothing like a little snow in April to make our white garden look a little more, well, white. Love it!! I’m calling this photo ‘La Belle et la Bête.'

Asparagus + hollandaise

Simplicité. I love anything lemony, especially hollandaise sauce. 🍋 Happy Easter, dear friends and fam—both near and far.

Moroccan lentil + carrot salad

We rocked the Casbah for today’s lunch with a salad of black beluga lentils, carrot ribbons, mint and cilantro, with a dressing made with Moroccan spices, orange juice and honey, along with a glass of mint tea. Light and refreshing.
