Time for cocktails in the garden! For Memorial Day, I'm making my Limoncello Vodka Collins - it's my summer twist on a classic. I'm also making Niman Ranch Burgers, Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad, Pasta, Pesto, & Peas, and for dessert - my delicious Strawberry Country Cake. The full menu and recipes are on my homepage. I hope you love them. Have a safe and happy holiday!
Last Sunday, Katie Couric stopped by to do an epsiode of her podcast with me. We had a wonderful time cooking scrambled eggs with truffle butter and talking about lots of things- life, business, cooking and entertaining, and of course, Jeffrey! We had a blast and I hope you will have fun listening to the episode, which is available today on couricpodcast.com !
I went a little crazy at the flower shop today – everything was so beautiful!! I’m entertaining a lot this weekend so I bought many different flowers in my two favorite colors – orange and purple. Now I can just fill some vases with roses or tulips and also make some mixed flower arrangements for the dinner table. Don’t forget to buy some flowers with greens (like spray roses) which really fill in any arrangement. Have a beautiful holiday weekend and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses!
This Week's Question
For a hostess gift, I prefer not to bring something that the host feels obliged to serve for dinner, but instead I bring something they can serve after dinner, like a box of Fran's Chocolate's caramels, or for breakfast the next day, like my favorite coffee and granola.
