Welcome! This blog is our way of sharing with you our ideas, our recipes, and our tried/true secrets to making it all work. While we aren’t foodies, we appreciate that food and drinks bring people together and we want to help you create a table where people gather. We can’t promise that it will be effortless but we can hopefully help you make it worth the effort. We’ve just launched our blog, so bear with us as we continue to enhance and add to it. We’re excited to be here, and we hope you have many reasons to come back.Our Lastest Post:
We had one of those impromptu sort of gatherings the other day that remind me what it’s like to be a good neighbor. Okay, it was actually our sister-in-law who was the good neighbor. She is equal parts thoughtful and convivial and is always looking for a way to bring people together. So, when she heard that her friend Betty and her daughter are looking to plan a trip to Africa, she thought we should all spend some time together. We had the easy part. Just be here and be prepared to talk about our trip and show them the photos from our trip (at least the friend-friendly version that has been pared down from the nearly 5,000 photos we came home with).
I decided that since they were coming mid-morning, I should have some sort of baked good to greet them with. It felt so, I don’t know, Gone With the Wind-ish (minus the war and all the bad parts). I made lemon blueberry bread. This is just the type of recipe to have at your ready. It comes together in just a few minutes and while it bakes (for about an hour), you have time to put on lipstick, set out some napkins and make a pot of coffee. And the best part? It bakes like a bread, but tastes like a dessert. This might be a great way to say Happy Mother’s Day.
