Enjoy this gallery of my elegant upcoming Easter table setting. Pewter Easter bunnies encased in a glass egg (our small gifts) accompany some fabulous floral arrangements on the tables. Placeholders created from favorite silks, glass and pewter chargers from Mexico, a miniature zebra rug to grace the table center, glasses that were gifts from friends and my sweet Belle (Memere) to all go along the egg-shaped Cognac server!
Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Celestial Moon…give me an excuse to create a Dinner Menu! Muddled Blueberry Martini kissed with Orange started it off…broken Chocolate Globes with Mousse and Creme lit with gold, a sweet ending! I’ll publish this luscious menu and all the recipes this week…for any moon you want to celebrate! Stage set!
Walking the pups and had a lucky glimpse of a chaise about to be “rehomed”…Yes, I did make the call “what are you doing with that chaise, and sweet neighbor…”It’s Yours”. I had so much fun using fabric I love, and old fur Coat (that’s the buttons!) and a beat up throw made new again. What’s old IS NEW AGAIN, but it takes a village. Thanks for the greatest team, that always answers, “Yay, we can do that”! Newest hot spot for reading that book….that I’m gonna get to one of these days!! Cheers!
Kitchen’s Bounty Couture Candles…it’s always been about the scent!
So in any kitchen, be it a show stopper, be it a warm work space, be it a cozy nook, if it isn’t smelling delicious, then it doesn’t have soul! So just as I seek and work to perfect Spices, Recipes and Menus with complex and delicious flavors, well the same thing applies for the candles that scent our studio and homes! A candle making artist, Devin, came into my life and shared some of her most delicious creations with me! At first, I was just so grateful to own these wonderful candles she had created, but then, like a good coffee, my thoughts percolated on “what if the scents and flavor profiles that drive my dishes, were contained in a candle?”. The result of these meanderings with said candle maker, is a little bit of “Culinary Aroma Therapy”. It just shouts love! Love the scents, Love the candle names (for my dear loves), Love the packaging (in our original spice jars) and Love that we, at the Kitchens Bounty, get to offer these to you! So happy and proud to share these treasures with you!
I honestly wonder, is there any better gift to bring to your next engagement, party or under the tree? Bring the Candles for their beauty, but when that glass lid is lifted and the scent wafts out, well that’s when the magic begins! ENJOY!
Be still my heart! Fall is here and my favorite Farmers (Roe’s Trading Post/Monroeville OH) are making their annual delivery of my bounty of Pumpkins, Mums, Squashes and such! For this decorating cookie, the thought of the colors, the taste and the weather stamps the delights of Fall! Now add to this my passion for cooking with Pumpkin, the love of carving and creating art, well Mother Nature just delivered lots of orange colored canvases! So in doing my happy dance, knife in hand – enjoy the display!
