Beignets in Winter

Chilly mornings in Nashville have prompted me to turn to an old New Orleans favorite. My easy recipe for French Beignets is simply a can of biscuits from the grocer, drop in fryer and dusk lightly with confectioners sugar. Enjoy with a spot of tea or hickory coffee! Happy munching 💕

Autumn Roses

The smell of autumn brings opportunity to delight your senses in a most beautiful way! I took the opportunity to share my garden with my lovely niece on a Sunday afternoon. We indulged in heirloom yellow roses planted for my daughter Suzi while sharing ice cream bourbon treats and conversation.

It is a wonderful life!

Fall…For Such A Time

A favorite pastime of mine during the Autumn season is to watch nature undress itself. The birds clamoring for the seeds from the bird feeder, the leaves falling tenderly on the ground and the whisper of the wind. These are little acts of a patterned life cycle that I’ve embraced through the years. It may appear off center in this pandemic and quarantined moment but we will get through it. “ For such a time as this… we have been prepared “. Imagine the best of your life in this moment and magical things can happen. My girlfriend invited me to her farm for an out of door lunch and together we laughed, lunched and lived in the moment of Love. I send you all the joy you can stand today!

A designer pumpkin and a bottle of champagne make the season brighter!
