Wow, it's been quite some time since my last post. How time flies. This is my favorite time of year for everything, clothes, scents, texture, temperature, and of course food. I was searching for a dessert to make for Thanksgiving, and ran across this one from Rachel Ray.
Pumpkin Cake with Whipped Cream and Pecan Praline
Aren't you just drooling?? I love pumpkin flavored desserts, with the exception of pumpkin pie. Throw in some whipped cream and pecan praline and I'm all over it. After reading the reviews I know this is the dessert I will be baking to celebrate turkey day!
I was able to squeeze in a little free time for some Lonny magazine love today! I ooh'd and ahh'd over lots of stuff but picked these two images as my must post for today.
The first image is Lauren Gold's home. She by the way is design director for Nate Berkus, whateva! No, I'm kidding that's cool. The second image is of Nate Berkus Associates Chicago office. I'm a sucker for giant open spaces with exposed beams. I might have to add a brick wall though. Well, I will definitely be adding these pics to my file for inspiration. How about you?
I recently finished a couple of aprons for a sweet gal I met thru our community garage sale. We chit chatted about decorating, and found out we have a lot of the same interests. I love it when you meet someone that shares a similar passion. Anyway, I finally delivered her aprons this past week, and snapped a few photos to share with all of you. Thoughts???
Well, we've come to yet another Friday, and of course my main focus is always food. How could it not be? There are just way too many wonderful food bloggers, magazines, restaurants, and farmer's markets to ensure my obsession.
Today when looking for a recipe and image, I was drawn to this simple and rustic Flatbread with Honey, Thyme and Sea Salt! Doesn't that sound delish! I'm sure I could handle an entire batch all by meself with a glass of wine! You know you could too!
Saw this dessert this morning over at Kiss My Spatula, and all I can say is yum! I love quinoa, but have never tried it in a dessert. The topper for me is the lemon whipped cream! This is a must for me very, very soon.
We had a wonderful family weekend. In fact I can't remember a better weekend we've spent together in a very long time! We had a picnic in the park, ate ice cream downtown, played in the river, hiked and explored, and just hung out together doing nothing at all! Hope your weekend was just as special!
