Coffee Talk BlogFrog Community Discussion

One of our favorite things is to share a cup of joe and some coffee chat.  When we were mothers with very young children we use to drive up and down the streets with our vans filled with sleeping toddlers and babies strapped in their car seats.  We would pass each other in the streets and nod and lift our cups to each other. Times have changed for us!!  We're now "coffee chatting" online ~ which is almost as good as in real life!! Please join us TOMORROW for a LIVE CHAT  :  Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 9 pm est We are going … [Read more...]

The Heart Of Savoring Beauty ~ Giving

A couple of years ago Kristin and I did some promotional work for a lovely hotel in Playa del Carmen called Azul Sensatori.  During our trip we visited a Children's Home that friends of Kristin and Devon's, Mike and Terrill, had been working on for about ten years.  It was the perfect time to see the progress that had happened over the years, with our own eyes. After our first visit my husband had the inspiration to invite his company to get involved with this project.  That inspiration became the beginning of yearly trips … [Read more...]

Friendship in Raising and Releasing Children

Today, I'm home in Baltimore, homeschooling my 3 younger kids (in theory). My husband is at work with our 14 year old who is off of high school this week.  My oldest son, Drama Boy (17) is in Minnesota with Chris Ann and her family. My thoughts have drifted to 15 years ago, when our two oldest sons were toddlers sharing a plastic table with a plate of cut up chicken nuggets and apples. Their vocabulary was limited, but somehow, even then, Chris Ann and I saw how easy they were with each other. They accepted each … [Read more...]

Strawberry Heart Cups with Goat Cheese Whipped Cream

It was about 10 years ago on Valentine's evening. Our casual, artsy coffee shop had been open for over a year. We served a purely vegetarian menu with baked pita pizzas like the Bella Donna and Artist's Heart. The menu was creative and we were constantly thinking outside the box when bringing flavors and technique together. Devon had been classically French trained under an amazing chef. He brought those techniques to our quaint, three story cafe situated in a historic, antique shopping district. There were days he longed to … [Read more...]

Rose Hashmary Potatoes

Devon was in the kitchen, in his zone, rambling on about this amazing potato hash he wanted to make.  I said, "There's something about the word 'hash' that does not sound appealing. I think we should come up with a different name. What's going into the dish?"  As he rambled off the ingredients, my daughter piped in and said, "What about Rose Hashmary Potatoes?" We both looked at each other and said, "Perfect!"  The ingredients for this dish are simple, but let me just tell you, what Devon does with the preparation creates a rich, … [Read more...]
