Cakes in Cups

Or... Wedding Bells The Sequel. Yes, part two of the wedding is upon us, and Susan and John are getting ready for their big party at Cocoraque Ranch today. I have been busy making Cuatro Leches "cakes in cups." Not cupcakes.


Loving Lucca

Before we decided that Tucson was to be our home, we dreamed of moving to Lucca, in the Tyrrhenian plains of Tuscany, Italy. We absolutely love Lucca - its rich and vibrant history, the architecture which runs from medieval to Art Nouveau, its cultural scene, its people, its few tourists, and, of course, its food.


Wedding Bells

Two of our favorite people are getting married this weekend. Susan - who works with me at the UA Honors College - and John. They are two of the kindest, smartest people we know, and they have such varied interests, too. It is so much fun to share a table with them!


On the Bayou

In the week between Christmas and the New Year, I took Mark to New Orleans for a surprise 60th birthday celebration. When I told him, he was so surprised and excited he went from 60 to 16 in 6 seconds - faster than a Ferrari! He was downright giddy.
