I'm Back

So, I know I haven't written here in a while, but I have been accumulating some wonderful pictures of lovely things I've made, eaten and drank. What got me thinking that I should post again in fact was actually a bottle of wine.
Domaine Des Aires Hautes Minervois La Livinière 2007 .

Here is the description on the LCBO site.. tell me you don't want to try it:
"Tasting Note
From Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache raised largely in used barriques ... offers a lovely nose of lavender, marjoram, cedar, ripe blackberry, and salt spray. With the juicy and vivacious fruit that characterizes both the best wines of this vintage and those of this estate, this charms and refreshes even while revealing firm, fine tannins and saline, chalky, meaty depth. This offers a lot of concentration and class for the money and ought to be worth following for 5-7 years. "

Ryan and I went to a baby shower this weekend for two wonderful friends of ours. I made two desserts for the party, macaroons with chocolate tops and the ever faithful chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. The chocolate is a basic chocolate devil food cake recipe and I tried out a new vanilla recipe called "butter cake". The vanilla was decent but could use some improvement. The icing was basically butter and icing sugar with the tiniest drop of milk..mmmmm... buuuutter. I should also mention that the process was soooo easy now that I have my kitchenaid mixer.

May I Please Have Plates

May I please have a ton of horse plates? I adore this Thomas Paul horse plate that comes in a set of silhouetted designs I found at SeltzerStudio ...

I always love the French Bull melamine plate designs also (like this pattern called "felix") ...

Beautiful Tea Set

I love love love these tea cups from notNeautral- very mid-century obviously, but there is definitely a modern touch to the design.
