Saying good bye?

Well, it's been awhile since my last post.  In April I had to say good bye to my dear beloved grandfather.  He was 94 years old and in January of this year he and my grandmother celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary. Yes, 72 years of marriage, if I'm ever so lucky. While reminiscing with my family and friends we remembered what a character he was and what a full and eventful life he had.  We've been truly blessed.  Love you Grandpa!

On a less tearful note, I was able to wish a dear co-worker a Happy Retirement with a butter cream yellow sheet cake. 


 The roses were done in red fondant and dusted with edible glitter to give that morning dew look.  




 Our co-worker did a wonderful job putting this all together; just check out the flowers.

 And after after 29 years of dedication, we wish Regina the best in her new adventure.  
The office will never be the same.  
Enjoy!

On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.




As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…
