Post and photographs by Carolyn apart from view from our hotel room which is from Hotel Powers Gallery. There is something magical about Paris. Alan and I honeymooned in Paris in June 1987 and visited often when we lived in London, but it is years […]
My gorgeous friend Karen used to serve this wonderful dessert when we lived in Wimbledon. For some reason I had completely forgotten about it until I was trying to think of something quick and healthy that my daughter Kat, the health conscious rower, would eat. […]
As most of you already know I love the cheese shop in Darien, it is definitely one of my favorite places. So imagine how excited I was when I learn that Ken was giving a talk to the Woman’s Group at the Darien Community Association. We agreed to collaborate, with […]
Linzer Cookies There is something about cutting a little heart (or star at Christmas time) out of the center of the Linzer cookie dough which elevates these rather regular cookies, or biscuits as we say in the U.K., into something very special. I sometimes make […]

So I already have one lentil recipe on my site but I made this version and am really excited that I managed to include both kale and sprouts, you really can’t get more on trend than this!
