Prince Inspired Cookies

I was sitting at my desk when a friend texted me about Prince’s death on Thursday. I had the same reaction that I had when I heard about Michael Jackson’s passing. It was a moment of disbelief.

Dare to be Eclectic

I’m often inspired by things I see while traveling or visiting with friends. Several years ago, we had lunch at our friends’ – Claire and Matt – flat in London and I recall loving Claire’s eclectic mix of antique dishware.
