Piaceri Invernali... Winter Pleasures...

No mater how happy I may be to start fresh in the New Year... there is always that little bit of wondering... what to do now.  Now,  during this time of not much going on.  We have had an amazing amount of rain,  which is fantastic,  but in between storms,  it feels a little  like springtime.  A little gardening is always in order and just a little crafting too... and always ,  cooking and baking.  I loved my little Christmas Wreaths on my mirrors so much that I decided to keep them,  but take the Christmas look away... so,  I ended up with little green wreaths,  with a  little bit  of purple,  as that is my color of choice this "winter" ( using that term lightly).  Sparkly Succulents in favorite tea cups add a little garden to my kitchen window.  Priscilla's favorite  Double Chocolate Bark turned into a tart,  a  Lovely Strawberry,  Mascarpone Tart with Chocolate Ganache Drizzle and a Buttery Cookie Crust,  and some adorable Teeny-Weenie sugar cookies... Focaccia,  a regular part of my cooking repertoire along with a Marinated Eggplant and Mozzarella Salad with a fresh Baguette...That should keep the winter doldrums away...



  1. Ogni volta che passo da te mi perdo nelle bellissime immagini del tuo blog, fotografie che parlano più delle parole... giardini in miniatura e belle ghirlande, deliziose tentazioni in tavola: ormai questa nuova casa è diventata la "tua" casa!!

  2. Happy New year, mary!

    Oh my gosh - your wreaths are gorgeous - and your food always mouth-watering yummy looking.

    Seriously, lady, you need to start sharing your recipes - you are an amazing chef and baker! I sure hope you link up to Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm - everything you do has beautiful food pics in it! Highly suggest it so more folks can find your incredible blog.

    Big hugs! ♥

  3. Oh, Purple is a wonderful color for January, Mary, and it's my very favorite color. There's something about it that fascinates me. Your wreaths are so pretty and creative. The Chocolate Ganache Drizzle looks amazing, and those teeny-weenie sugar cookies are delightful. I'm glad you're getting some the rain too. I think more is on the way. :)

    love, ~Sheri

  4. Oh Mary, it's all wonderful! The Teenie - Weenies are merry makers!
