Last week I hosted book club at my home which means I am in charge of serving refreshments after our book discussion. I loved the book we read this month.  In fact, I think it may be my favorite book I have read so far this year.  We read the book Swan House by Elizabeth Musser.  The person who presented the book had actually purchased the book in the gift shop of the Swan House in Atlanta, Georgia.  The house is a real place but the story is fiction based [Continue Reading...]

One thing the Northwest does right is berries! You name it – we’ve got it. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, marionberries, tayberries and even loganberries.

Berries & Cream

Berries & Cream

We are in full berry season here in the Northwest. Our lack of sun this summer has delayed everything a bit but the berries are alive and well. I went raspberry picking last week and the vines were covered and they were falling off the vines. I’ve been having fun playing with lots of fun berry recipes this week but sometimes nothing is better than just simple berries and cream. A bowl of ripe, sweet, fresh picked berries covered in a light, lovely whip cream. Because I have been on [Continue Reading...]
