S is for Summer. And Strawberries.

Last week I discovered something awesome – there is a farmer’s market I can access during my lunch hour at work!  I  cannot describe to you with words the satisfaction of my lunch (and by lunch I mean snack that lasted all afternoon) that day….fresh baked bread on which I spread chèvre d’olive, and an […]

May 10, 2010

Happy Springtime!  Here en Suisse it has certainly been a Spring of rain and rain, bright sun, a little more rain, and then poof the most gorgeous flowers dotting all the hillsides, springing up on every patch of green possible, celebrating life and singing joyously, all of a sudden as if by magic.  I love […]
