Breville GiftAway

Here it is!!  Yes, we promised you that we had a special GiftAway coming...and here it is!  We have shared with you before just how special this machine is to us!  So, special that yes, we admit it, we took it on the road with us across the USA! I know, I know, it's a bit over the top!  But, you have to understand, my husband and I owned a coffee shop.  We are so dedicated to a good cup of coffee that we even backpacked our own beans and a press with us through China!  Priorities people!  When we stumbled on this gem of a … [Read more...]

Yep Yifta Time Again

Word on the street, is that some of our readers, especially those in southern Minnesota are wanting the recipe for Yifta.  Now, that's a complicated order.  'Cause for one thing it is a secret family recipe.  For another thing, you can only get the recipe if you join our family's Thanksgiving table and pass the quiz of guessing what the ingredients of Yifta are.  Then, you have to promise to eat it for breakfast for the following week after you make it. If, and only if I can trust you with at least that last item, eating it … [Read more...]

Pioneer Woman Book Signing

What a day yesterday was!  Now that I'm relaxing in my yoga pants with a double espresso downed and doing laundry, I can barely figure out how to recap!  Let's just say that Saturday I hit the ground running-but at least I didn't hit a deer (ahem! Kristin).  First of all, I was double booked.   I had committed to being on the hostess committee for a benefit for Healing House, an amazing residential recovery for women and their children. My friend Teena Dietz, founder of Intentional Serenity was the co-chair of this event, … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Daily Inspiration

Fancy Friday's is a place at LoveFeast Table to get inspired and to awaken the eyes to the beauty in the everyday.  We find it in a platter of vegetables, peeling fruit, an art car found in a shopping mall parking lot in Minnesota, a Baltimore porch swing or a street in New York City.  Ahhh, or how about the beautiful dilemma of Sienna or Florance?  What have you discovered for your inspiration? Thanks for sharing this conversation at our table!  Kristin & Chris Ann … [Read more...]

Baltimore Food Bloggies Unite!

As "bi-city" bloggers, Chris Ann and I have been trying to connect and meet fellow bloggers in our home cities.  Chris Ann connected with our guest blogger, Kate, from Kate in the Kitchen in Minneapolis.  I started talking to Elizabeth from Strawberries in Paris and Dara from Dining Dish both from Baltimore.  I had been invited to a crab feast this past summer, but was unable to make it because of previous plans.  Then, when the Mobbies Award Ceremony was set, after a crazy, whirlwind campaign, Chris Ann and I realized it was the … [Read more...]

Ace of Cakes-Inside the World of Charm City Cakes GiftAway!

I just want to start by saying, I really couldn't put this book down!  I bought the book, Ace of Cakes: Inside the World of Charm City Cakes,  thinking it was an Ace of Cakes cookbook, but it's not.  This book is a LoveFeast kinda book!  I felt like I was sitting at the table with the gang at Charm City Cakes and hearing their stories and getting a glimpse into what drives each one of them to do what they do!  Each person at Charm City Cakes is featured in this book.  They share their backgrounds and the events that lead them to … [Read more...]

Charm City Cake’s New Book!

Baltimore is known as Charm City.  I have to tell you, I love my city!  It's quirky.  It's loyal.  It's diverse and very creative.  It's home to the O's and the Charm City Roller Girls!  The Inner Harbor is a great tourist stop.  The Star Spangled Banner was written here and I promise, no other city has the Hon Fest!  Edgar Allan Poe found inspiration here!  And Duff Goldman has found a great spot to dig in his heels and sprout a delicious dream!  Baltimore is home to Charm City Cakes.  (We are so lucky!) The Charm City Cakes … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Favorite Room

My kitchen is my favorite room in my house.  It is full of things that make me happy.  Like a little hand painted bowl my mom brought back from Spain. A hand made flower that I received in the mail from a friend (Chris Ann to be exact!)  Hand painted tiles from my daughter. A beautiful dish our friend from Morocco gave to us.  We shared a lamb and cous cous dish, his mother prepared for us, off of this plate. My knobs! A vintage plaque that reminds me to give thanks for all things.  A little ornament I … [Read more...]
