When I thought of Tami's Birthday Lunch, I decided on " Bohemian Springtime" as the theme…Tami loves color , and I wanted to do something a little different than the typical pinks, lavender, and other pastels that are the essence of springtime. I painted the cake with my version of dandelions or allium , and made stylized hollyhocks and sunflowers …Inside, the cake was a Limoncello Cake with sweetened Mascarpone and Lemon Curd.

Giu Giu had a Ballet Recital last night , and rather than bring her flowers, I thought i'd make her a cake. A very girly cake… Barbie, Pink , and sparkles. She absolutely loved it!

We had the best Mother's Day … Jim, Nicola, Priscilla, and Nick made us a beautiful dinner at at Anna and Nicola's . We moms were not allowed to do any of the work, so we just relaxed and enjoyed a beautiful sun shiny day. It was a special time together, and we're so grateful to have Mom with us for yet another Mother's Day.

As usual, i've been spending a lot of time in the garden and the kitchen. The raised beds have been planted with the a nice variety of plants. Tomatos, Eggplant, Zucchini, Pumpkins, Onions, Carrots, Beets, Romanesco Cauliflower , various Herbs, Sunflowers, and other companion Flowers for attracting Bees. It's been fun, and now I have to be patient, while waiting for everything to grow, and fill in. Priscilla was home for the weekend, so time in the kitchen is always a must… Breakfast pastry…two cream cheese and fig, and another with chocolate and cream cheese.
