Tomorrow I'll be presenting a corporate wellness program to a company in Exeter, NH. Here are photos of the cupcakes made using my recipe for Flower Confetti Cake from my cookbook "Beautifully Delicious". Please don't laugh at my attempt to bake ;-)
I am heading to the Sandwich Public Library in Sandwich, MA to present : Build a Better Sandwich. The librarian asked me to create the program for their summer reading program. My biggest problem in creating the program was deciding what sandwiches to include. Here are the three that I've been working on.
One step at a time…My interpretation of Croque Monsieur: Buttered and toasted bread rubbed with a clove of garlic, Lavoie’s tomatoes, Dijon, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, tossed under the broiler.
Sage, kale flower, bachelor button, peony, lavender, johnny jump ups, and chive flowers all make a lovely and tasty bouquet.
I could not resist posting this picture of my breakfast today. I am an egg eater. I love scrambled eggs and have been experimenting with flavor boosters. Today I chopped up some chive, lovage, and parsley and added it to my scrambled eggs. To pretty up the plate I added some bachelor buttons, kale flowers, and chive flowers. It was tasty!
I'm riding a wave of publicity that I just can't believe! In May New Hampshire Home published an article featuring my gardens and my kitchen. And just last week, I received the Summer issue of Where Women Cook which features my kitchen and some of my favorite recipes.
Last January photographer, stylist, and publisher Matthew Mead contacted me and asked if I would be interested in collaborating on an article for the publication. I was thrilled! Matthew is a well-known food photographer and has been publishing his own life style magazines for some time. I'd been a secret fan for a while. We spent the morning together in my kichen taking photos and finished up with a lunch sampling of each recipe. What a fun day! Matthew is just as nice as I imagined and made the day a fun adventure. Here are some photos of the article. You can buy a copy of the magazine at Where Women Cook.

I have been busy in my garden getting it ready for this year's Open Garden Tour. I'm trying new gardening concepts and fun design ideas that I know you will love. And, like last year, the Hollis Woman's Club will be holding its Strawberry Festival across the street from 2-4pm.
