Thanks again to Chef Busy Bee for sharing another wonderful recipe with us this week! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, her recipe is also something to keep in mind if you’re looking for a lovely homemade gift.
Here’s a wonderful recipe for molten lava cakes from my friend, Busy Bee. Her recipe is unbelievably easy to make and so delicious, you’ve just got to try it yourself. As you’ll read below, they’re now a Super Bowl tradition in her home, but I think they’re a great idea to keep in mind for Valentine’s Day too.
I visited the Interior Design Show in Toronto this weekend and, as always, it was filled with inspiration.
It was a thrill to finally meet face to face with the Bloom Lounge Chair (above) at the Emily Quinn booth. I’ve long been intrigued by Kenneth Cobonpue’s whimsical flower-shaped chair but this was my first time seeing one in person. In magazine photos the petals have more folds and frills and the chair somehow seems more alive but still, it is incredibly imaginative, impressive and surprisingly comfy.
Along with numerous other talents, my good friend, Busy Bee, is a wonderful chef who graciously agreed to do a guest post here today. I must tell you that I’ve eaten some of the most delicious food at her kitchen table, she’s shared many wonderful recipes with me over the years and she’s even used her magic to help me salvage some disasters in my own kitchen.
So, it gives me great pleasure to share her post, including a recipe for Avgolemono, with you here.
A couple of months ago I started reading Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin and I posted about it here. As I said back then, rather than a “how-to” book, this is more like a memoir of nine months in the author’s life as she goes about making her home life happier.
Month by month, she focuses on a particular area in her life and attempts to make changes which she hopes will invite more happiness into her home. She starts in September by tackling her family’s possessions, then moves through the categories of marriage, parenthood, interior design, time, body, family, neighborhood and “now”.
If you haven’t seen the HGTV 2013 Dream Home on Kiawah Island, you’ve got to check it out! Judging from the photos it’s a beautiful blend of elegance and comfort with great use of color.
The guest bedroom first caught my eye with its deep blue accents. As the main color in my own bedroom is a rich blue, I love seeing how they’ve worked it into this room. The wall color is also interesting and I’m tempted to get a tester of their shade to try on my own walls.
