June is our big month,as you know, if you have been following my blog from last year at this time. If there are no graduations, then it starts with our wedding anniversary followed by David's birthday. I don't have good pictures of the really nice place where we celebrated David's 50th birthday, but I do have a link....here. Once you check out the site, you will see what a nice time we had!
We had a little break from family celebrations to have a visit from our dear friends from college. I decided to make a cherry vanilla pie for dessert.
Haven't made a lattice top in a while, it was so much fun.
bubbling out of the oven. I used a recipe that was on Rebekka's site.
Later I'll do a post on the amazing store where I got these. The name is Berkeley Bowl. They opened up a new site,and I went crazy with the produce! Look at these amazing heirloom tomatoes!
Fruit is always so pretty on a platter.
Here is the whole feast.
Welcome to Nicole's 24th birthday. Table is set, it's time to eat!
Nicole requested her favorite pasta that I make. Salmon/leek and lemon over linguine.
Took me the better part of a day to make this cake. It was from Ina Garten's first cookbook. The frosting was time consuming,but so worth it. I haven't made a butter cream that you have to heat egg whites, then whip them until they are glossy followed by a whole pound of butter and two types of chocolate melted!!! Wowzers it was good.
We end June with a big wish and a very Happy Birthday to Nicole!!!
