Skeleton Keys.

I have spent many hours searching out funky old skeleton keys. I discovered a girl on etsy selling part of her collection. I was lucky enough to snap them all up. I was going to launch them as part of a summer line, but I am unconciously hoarding them ALL. I gave an intricate piece to Cam to add to the two he already had. He requested it as a representation for Miss Roxy. How could I say no to that.....he kept it very safe until he lost it about 2 weeks later.

You will have to come out to a market or send me a really nice note if you would like one. I am thinking of getting them cast in brass to allow them to live on.

Lemon Poppyseed Pound Cake.

I made this Lemon Poppyseed Pound Cake for my (soon to be...) parents in-laws. The meal started with fresh foccacia, spaghetti, and ended with this cake.

I was going to post the recipe (adapted from Anna Olsons new baking book) but the cake is not worth repeating. The flavour was great, but it was SO dry. Everyone was very polite and choked it down. My mum suggested I write to ms.olson and let her know that baking this cake for over an hour in a loaf pan seems a little excessive. I was always told to follw baking recipes exactly.....guess not.

We made french toast with the left overs the next morning. I should have documented that breakfast instead. delish!! Coated in egg and swimming in maple syrup. yum.




welcome spring! we've missed you

I am so excited to get out of hybernation with Roxy and enjoy more fresh air.

I'm so excited for bike rides and breezy beach picnics!
