To say we were well feed would be an understatement. The biggest concern we had in the first week was, with all the great food we were consuming, would we fit into our dresses for the wedding.

There are times when we overlook the fact that the simplest recipes, such as this fresh figs and honey dessert. They are often the most elegant and the most fun to make. That certainly is the case with this fresh figs and honey dessert recipe. I can’t tell you where it came from. What I do know […]
I love flowers and couldn’t help taking a million pictures when I saw them. As a result, I was doing all kinds of closeups. What was so amazing to me were the window boxes full of flowers?
