Baklava Pull-Apart Bread

Baklava Pull-Apart Bread

Baking is a very soothing activity. Baking bread with scads of butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nuts is the epitome of soothing. Baklava Pull-Apart Bread came to me along a somewhat circuitous path, as frequently happens with my food inspiration. During this strange time...

Honeycomb Cake with Sponge Toffee Garnish

Honeycomb Cake with Sponge Toffee Garnish

When searching for a suitable dessert to pair with my Sadek Blue Bees, I came across this gorgeous, but somewhat ambitious cake. I'd never worked with candy melts before, but who could resist that honeycomb exterior? Made with bubble wrap, no less! I read the...

Green Beans, Tomatoes and Kalamata Olive Salad

Green Beans, Tomatoes and Kalamata Olive Salad

This salad has only a few ingredients and takes minutes to throw together. The flash-cooked and cooled green beans lend some crunch to the meaty tomatoes, along with the salty tenderness of the olives. Delicious!   I'm sharing this post...

Most of the grand manor houses we see in England have a history involving a lot of ups and downs. Sudeley Castle is the veritable Snakes & Ladders of the genre. The tale began innocuously enough with a commonplace event: William le Boteler of Wem married heiress...

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just...

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October....

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Let's do a little armchair travelling to the beautiful Cotswold villages of Burford and Chipping Campden. Like many people, we have postponed our overseas trips for now; I'll use the found time to catch up on photos of past trips and let the world gradually come to...
