Mouth-watering Thai food and desserts from Jade Teahouse and Patisserie. A current addiction. I never thought I'd ever trust a place that claims to specialize in two completely different things. So believe me I was skeptical of this place. Until I learned that the owner was in fact Vietnamese, has lived in different parts of SE Asia, including Thailand, and studied French baking at a culinary school in France. Enough said.
Macarons. Specifically hibiscus, salted white chocolate, passion fruit, and raspberry macarons. Mmmm, heaven. I always thought these were called macaroons, but I was thoroughly confused by that because I thought macaroons were more chocolatey and always had some kind of coconut involved. Well, come to find out I was right about the latter and SO completely off on their name.

Panko Herbed Salmon steaks, vinegar lentils, and buttered, rosemary potatoes for our Saturday night dinner. Yes, I feasted all weekend.
An inspiring read for the thinkers, visionaries, and lovers of change.
Easter Appetizers. French Onion Soup stuffed in a mushroom! Post on these babies to come...
Easter Feast! It hurt so good.
I had a lovely weekend, needless to say. I feel so blessed to live in such a perfect city, full of good food, stunning nature, creative minds, and people who appreciate the sun more than almost anything. I feel so blessed to be apart of a community of outstanding cooks, artists, and friends. I feel so blessed to be living into a story of resurrection.
