Foodie Friday and Everything Else

It's nice to see you again at Foodie Friday and Everything Else. I've been cooking this week with the Novel Bakers--we hosted a week-long tea party. 

You are cordially invited to unforgettable tea parties with the Novel Bakers:

Jain at a quiet life 
Linda at More Fun Less Laundry

Highlights from last week's party.

A spectacular visit to Bunny Williams' Connecticut Guest House by More Fun Less Laundry.

"The peaceful northwestern corner of Connecticut is home to many secret gardens and beautiful homes, including several whose owners generously open gates and doors to the drooling public for the benefit of various charities.  Fifteen years ago Bunny Williams held a garden open house, and its success inspired an annual tradition known today as Trade Secrets, a two day event which includes tours of four area gardens (always Bunny’s garden and three others) and a rare plant and garden antiques show."


A warm, welcoming summer porch by Lynne's Gifts from the Heart.
"One of the requirements when we built our home was I had to have a front porch. The porch is the full length of the house 68' and 10' deep. That's a 680 square feet of space to decorate and share with friends and family."


A scrumptious spinach and ricotta tart with roasted cherry tomatoes by Treat Yourself Sweeter.
"Spinach and Ricotta Tart with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes; Crunchy pastry filled with spinach and ricotta, a hint of lemon and sweet roasted cherry tomatoes on top. A quick, easy meal perfect for lunch or dinner."
