Let the Summer Begin

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Conservatory of Flowers Gala in San Francisco. It was a great evening and a special opportunity to be able to walk around the Conservatory at night and really take everything in without a crowd. While a lot...

Cooking Class

What a treat I had today. I'm part of a local garden club that meets once a month. We always have our last meeting in May until we gather again in the fall so we usually do a luncheon to go along with our meeting...

Betty’s Fudge

Do you ever need a gift for the person who has it all? This coming week I have a friend with a birthday that just might be the hardest person to buy for. I have made several attempts to get her the perfect present, but...

Pigging out

I've always wanted to roast a pig. I mean, come on, who hasn't?  A couple of weeks ago I came one step closer to my goal of digging a big pit  in my backyard, throwing in a pig and enjoying the delicious results with a...

Yum!

Last week I went with my daughter, Hannah, and my "adopted" daughter, Meghan, up to Santa Cruz to visit our friend Richelle, AKA Horsewoman. After helping Richelle decorate her place for a couple of hours we started to get a bit hungry and decided to...
