  • Try a Blackberry Jam Cake for holiday entertaining

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Are you ready?

    Our Christmas will be very simple this year and I am so glad. The last few years have been so busy with my catering that I did not have much time to do things for others.

    This year is already different. I have been baking up a storm, but only so that I may give special gifts to my friends. I am having so much fun.

  • Longtime friendship leads to dessert collaboration

    Jarret Boyd always has a good column, but the one I really enjoyed was a couple of weeks ago when she wrote about visiting with her friends.

    It is so important to keep in touch with friends we have made over the years, but it isn’t always easy. Actually, Facebook has helped and I am so glad for that. It keeps us informed about what is going on with them, but the personal touch is truly the best.
