End of Season

I was hoping to be open this weekend but the weather just isn't on my team. When it gets this cold our hoses freeze so we have no water. I hate to say, but it looks like we are closed for the season. Tommy is still planning to sell Christmas Trees on the lot Sat & Sun 10a-4p. We'll be there if we can. We were planning an open house for sunday to end the year but the snow shut us down early. Maybe an Opening Party will be in the works for January. I'll keep you posted. I just want to say thanks to everyone for all their support over this past year. We had a great one & hope to have an even better 2009.... We wish you the same.

Eat Mobile

I had so much fun putting our booth together...I have always loved creating space.

We had a good time & every last cookie & muffin was given away.... The Ginger Lime Macaroons seemed to be the favorite with Cashew Butter & Sea Salt coming in a closed second.
All the kids were so sweet. They would get all wide eyed at the edge of the table & their little hand would reach for the Spiced Coco Crisps or a Lemon Lavender Shortbread....Then big grins would appear

All the food was delicious.... It was such a treat to be able to sample all the goodness. Lena had her mission to get us bites from every booth. We started with Goulash from Tabor warm & spicy..... then we had some Dahl with paneer from India Chaat House YUM.... The line for Asian Station Cafe was long but Lena offered to trade cookies for dumplings.... good thinking. We were set up next to Tita's Pista so we had easy access to crispy Lumpia.... We missed out on the Russian food ...So now I will have to make an effort to visit Julia at her mobile cafe. I'm a sucker for a Chocolate Cupcake thanks New Season. Rudy & Emily from Jr. Ambassador scooped the night away... I enjoyed the Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese ice cream the smokey finish was very nice. So now with all this inspiration & a lovely Sunday off with William.. including brunch at Simpatica that was so over the top. I'm refreshed & looking forward to the weekend. Hope to see you all soon

Clafouti Anyone?

I know this is more of a desserty dish but I love it for breakfast...... Steaming & Bursting with juicy fruit... creamy warm custard in every bite. Paired with a rich latte from the Fresh Pot what more could you want on a spring morning. We will be serving Clafouti this weekend filled with red plums & raspberries. (baked to order..... worth the wait)

Breakfast Bread Pudding & Obama

I've been dreaming of living on a farm lately.... getting fresh cream from cows & warm eggs from under the hens that lay them.
I love to make simple basics.... So last weekend I made a Breakfast Bread Pudding with Blood Orange Syrup & Creme Fraiche.
I made the creme fraiche..... Letting the cream & buttermilk sit in a thick ceramic crock & get thick overnight. I enjoy the slow process of watching it transform. I'm experimenting with a yogurt cheese this week. Will see what happens.
William & I went to see Mr. Obama last week & it really gave me a sense that maybe we can choose a new path. He speaks from a place in him that reflects a much deeper conversation we all need to be having as human beings.

Spring is here

We are glad to be back & excited for spring....
Meyer lemons are in season now & found their way into these lovely little bundt cakes.
All the favorites are back..... The Swell, The Buckwheat Belgian Waffle, & the Cheddar Biscuit being most missed!
We will have a few Specials this weekend....
Breakfast Bread Pudding with Blood Orange Syrup & Homemade Cream Fraiche ..... Eggs & Greens with Wild Mushrooms, Smoked Salmon, Roasted Leeks & a Lemon Thyme vinaigrette.
We know the rain isn't over just yet... So William built a few walls to keep you all dry...
He always does a great job & then I get to give it the Moxie Rx touch...
Enjoy the beauty of the new season & remember to smell the flowers

A New Year

We really are enjoying our break & the holidays were swell
I did a lot of baking for friends & family....Photobucket
I was inspired by some new things this season...I used quince for the first time this fall & what a beautiful thing
I made crumb muffins with quince & currants. I love the subtle fragrance & discovered that a shot of the poaching liquid is very nice in a glass of champagne ....
I am trying to get the knack of this blogging stuff but I guess it is something that has to be in your blood....
I love to read about food & talk about it but just haven't found the groove for writing about it yet.
Happy New you to you all & We will see you in the Spring
