"So, we all die.
We just don’t talk about it. And by IT, I mean, what actually happens when someone dies. We’re all curious about it but we also know that we can’t say “I’m sorry your Grandma passed away. Who did you call when it happened? Did she go to the morgue? Did you write the obituary?“
"This was one of my favorite maternity sessions, simply because this Mama was so excited to capturing her pregnancy. Previous losses gave them gave them such gratitude for this growing baby in her belly and it showed in her eyes and in her smile."
"Creating sauce from fruit is so delicious and perfectly simple. It's the perfect way to welcome summer into our kitchens.
You can add it to ice cream, shortcake, pancakes, french toast, angel food cake, biscuits, oatmeal or just lick it directly off the spoon.

Once upon a time, cake and shortbread had a child and named her scone. She was not too sweet, but not bland, a little crumbly but perfectly perfect with a cup of coffee. Eventually, her family grew. Orange scones, lemon scones, chocolate chip scones, pecan scones, they were a happy bunch.
And then last week, Maple Walnut Scone was created in my kitchen. She pays the perfect homage to fall and winter, she feels hearty but she’s just as gentle as her relatives.
I’m thrilled for you to have Maple Walnut Scones in your home. The children have her for breakfast or an after school snack, I enjoy her at any opportunity. And I’m pleased to tell you, she’s a cinch to make. You must believe me! No mixer! No softened butter! Just some bowls, measuring spoons, a fork, measure cups and a rolling pin.
I do have a simple request…please do not over bake her. Because then she’ll be dry and you won’t enjoy her and you’ll cry and she’ll cry and let’s just have no crying.
