Beauty Break

I’ve been taking a little summer break from blogging, but I’ll be back next week with a recipe of my own and another edition of Cook the Book Fridays.

In the meantime, here are some of my favourite photos of this year’s crop of dahlias. There are two more varieties that have yet to reveal themselves, so I may share a few more photos later on.
Tiger-striped dahlia

Spiral blooms

Lavender and gold dahlia

Hot Pink Dahlia

Fuschia dahlias

Cream spiked dahlia


A Pause for Celebration


It’s Kevin’s Birthday today, so I’m busy celebrating. On Friday, I’ll tell you about something I made for him.

For now, admire the gift I got in the mail from Maille Canada. I’ll tell you what I did with those (besides eat them up more quickly than I care to admit) on Tuesday.

And here’s a teaser of something I’ve got coming up for you in a few weeks.

See you Friday!
