"I am not sure who said it, but I agree, the most important ingredient is Love. " - Barbara Simpson

Cuisine & From the Vine

Cooking, food, wine, are all favourite past-time for many. Since I was a young girl, family dinners and social occasions outside of the holidays, like Easter, Christmas, Mothers and Fathers Day and so on, were always important in our family. They were the best; everyone around the kitchen or dining room table, somewhat out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Today, we love to do much cooking at home, with our families and always with Love. We enjoy trying new recipes and we also enjoy exploring the beautiful wine country in which we live. Be it that we are visiting our local grocery store, farmer's market or winery, we enjoy the experience of our outings and the art of cooking. My motto, for quite some time, has been, "Make moments count." And we do!! These are great moments spent together with my sweetheart and with our families. Each painting you see here on this page encompasses journeys in and out of the kitchen, abundance for which we are blessed and all in their delicious shapes and colours, and each with meaning from my heart and a story of their own.
