Pumpkin and pies. . . . . . . . . . .


This is what's sitting on my coffee table today. . . . . . . 


. . . . . . . one of my favorite birthday gifts, this amazing recipe book. 
Again, my granddaughter Jasmin picked something perfect for me.  
Looking through this beautifully styled book this morning I was
 completely in awe. 

If you're not familiar with Linda Lomelino's baking, and her amazing
 photography, be sure to visit her beautiful blog

Linda has taken self-taught culinary skills, and enhanced her basic,
 high school photography classes, to produce an amazing body of work
 ~ on her blog, and in her gorgeous books ~ from her Swedish kitchen.
I admire these young people who follow their passions and dreams. . . . . . 
and I can't wait to try some of the recipes.

Enjoy another lovely autumn weekend.

    1. How right you are Vee - we feel so inadequate at times, left behind in the aging group when it comes to the technical/electronic world!
      BUT - I still think 'our world' was better and more fun!!!!!!

    1. Jackie, I recall pie/tart baking with mum as a child - her pies, and cakes, were awesome, and she never even required a recipe - just knew what to throw in the bowl much the time!
