Endless Summer with Estelle and Duck Napkins

Endless Summer with Estelle and Duck Napkins

We are just on the cusp of summer when cool blue and white reign supreme.  By Hutschenreuther (I always have to look up the spelling of that one), Estelle is among my favourite patterns. During our early days vacationing in Cape Cod in the late 1990s, the...

Juliska Sketch

Juliska Sketch

Spring on the Cape is a long, drawn-out affair with lots of sea mist and chilly mornings. The daffodils last for weeks, and the fruit trees blossom slowly and luxuriantly, carpeting the streets with fallen petals. When the flowering cherry trees hit their peak,...

A Fitz & Floyd Chateau Tea

A Fitz & Floyd Chateau Tea

You've heard of cottage teapots? They usually feature a cosily thatched cottage, complete with a cottage flower garden. Fitz and Floyd upped the elegance a notch with the Chateau Teaset from the mid-1980s. Which I received as a gift when it first came out. Gulp. Time...

Blue Birds of Spring

Blue Birds of Spring

The sweetest of flowers have arrived: white lilacs and lilies of the valley. Utter heaven. Their exquisite blossoms are as delicate as their scents. Not yet being blessed with blooms from our newly-planted-last-year white lilac bush, I have to content myself with...

Minton Cat Plates

Minton Cat Plates

Pinterest was the first place I saw these plates. They came up on my feed, of course, given that a combination of tableware, animals and travel (particularly to the UK) are the chief subjects of my browsing. [gallery type="rectangular" size="medium"...

Ginger Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Ginger Rhubarb Coffee Cake

It's late spring, and with spring comes rhubarb. Alleluia! The trick with rhubarb is to cook it with sufficient sugar for a short enough time to take the edge off the tartness without making the fruit mushy. In this recipe, the rhubarb is macerated (making it tender),...

When it's too hot to even contemplate turning on the oven, a rotisserie chicken is a chef's best friend. Sliced and served with a multitude of vegetables and some spicy mayonnaise between layers of pita bread, you have a perfect hand-held meal-in-one. This recipe is...

Cherry Filled Baked Doughnuts

Cherry Filled Baked Doughnuts

Dunkin' Donuts and Krispy Kreme are the places to go for doughnuts in the USA. In Canada, it's Tim Horton's  (or Timmies, as it's better known) all the way. Back in the day, each Timmies' location baked its own doughnuts, tailoring the flavour selections to local...

Rhubarb Tartan Cake

Rhubarb Tartan Cake

I’ve been intrigued with the idea of decorating a cake with thin strips of rhubarb since I saw Heather Baird’s Rhubarb-Wrapped Pineapple Mousse Cake on the SprinkleBakes website. I’m not a huge fan of pineapple and wanted more of a rhubarb-forward confection. A...

Blueberry Cucumber Salad

Blueberry Cucumber Salad

This versatile salad makes a great starter for an elegant dinner when served in a champagne coupe or martini glass.  It's equally at home in a lidded mason jar for your next picnic. The cukes and blueberries are tangy and refreshing; the goat cheese provides a...
