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
