Rosh Hashanah begins this Wednesday, September 28th, and my husband’s birthday is the 29th.  I’ll be celebrating both with some “small plates” and a gluten-free birthday cake!  Quite a combination, I know.

The common name for the lily flowers I’m sharing with you today is actually Naked Ladies. Naked Ladies don’t usually bring my mind to food — rather, to an amazing trip to Big Sur, California I took with my husband — then suitor ;-). These pretty pink flowers were popping up here, there, and everywhere!  They […]
