Summer Homegrown Produce!!

It’s the most delicious time of the year if you have a veggie garden or have friends with a veggie garden. You can not ever beat the taste of a fresh home grown tomato. It almost seems a crime to cook with them.

My Sister’s 40th Birthday Party 2021

Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister! We had so much fun cooking, styling, photographing & eating all the food for my sister’s birthday party dinner with family. There were 12 of us & it was supposed to start at 3pm but we took slightly longer getting the grazing board & countless photos done!! The most important thing was that my sister absolutely loved her birthday & her party was exactly just how she had imagined it would be. I made the birthday cake which was the Carrot Layer Cake recipe by Christina Tosi (which is also included in the In the Mix 2 Cookbook & on the Dani Valent website) My sister wanted all the food to team with the theme of neutrals & greens. The dessert was homemade ice creams with toppings, nibbles & sauces to compliment the ice cream.
