I was able to get my hands on some fresh edible pansy’s at a restaurant supply store the other day, and I decided to finally try a recipe from my Cooking with Flowers book. The one that stood out most to me was the pansy crêpes. Great for Spring! So I gently washed and dried […]
decided to get a head start on Easter (yesterday being the first day of Spring and all) this year by making little treat bags to hold goodies in the Easter baskets; because I wanted to buy big bag of candy and separate it instead of buying the more expensive individual packets every time.

I was alone in a hospital bed. I’m alone right now, sort of. My two oldest children are here with me in this new house we just moved into last week sleeping upstairs. My husband left for a business trip just earlier, and I already miss him of course So, it’s a little ironic to […]
