I missed y’all! And I missed using this space to share recipes, meals, and stories.
It has been a crazy few months and I just couldn’t seem to find time for everything, including cooking and blogging. I seemed to have lost my inspiration but thanks to some time off and two very sweet gifts, I’ve got my kitchen mojo back and I am excited to fill this space up with delicious food again!
Over the next few weeks, I will share some great food that we ate in Paris, Carmel, the Bahamas, and at home in Houston, as well as new recipes I’ve been working on lately.
But without further ado, I have to show y’all these super cool gifts that two of my cooking / eating “mentors” (Mom and Aunt Kathi) gave me recently!
Mom had this apron made for me (and a set of matching kitchen towels) at Jan de Luz, our favorite shop in Carmel. Recognize the embroidered wording?! It makes me so happy each time I slip it over my head. I love the French ticking, but I especially love that she was able to get the font and logo replicated so perfectly. Isn’t it the coolest?!
And check out this fabulous cookbook collection from Aunt Kathi! She picked out five classic cooking manuals and had them bound with personalized covers! Each one is a fantastic resource, but I especially love the James Beard and Amanda Hesser ones.
Coming up soon – a Greek feast with lamb meatballs, white bean dip, and roasted vegetables!
