Good morning my friends!

Today I want to show you a fun project I have been working on with my friend, local artist Andrea Holmes. I’ve actually written about Andrea before here on the blog–you can read her story here.

Due to the quarantine, I had to delay the publication of our Summer magazine. What typically would have published the first of May was postponed until the first of June. So as a little apology gift to my magazine subscription holders, I sent them a mini cookbook to download with 8 of my favorite recipes from over the years on TAOLB. To make it extra special, I sent Andrea pictures of the 8 dishes, and asked her to draw them on her iPad.

When she sent me the files I couldn’t stop squealing because they were so stinkin’ cute! Here they are:

Summer Peach Cherry Galette

Sparkling Rosè Bellini

Baked Eggs with Herbs and Parmesan

Greek Stuffed Peppers

Grown Up Ramen Soup

Chocolate Martini

Pineapple Coconut Granita

Chilled Cucumber Soup

This was such a fun project to collaborate on–and you’ll be seeing more to come, I’m sure. For now I leave you with a little treat. Below is wallpaper for your phone that has all the darling drawings Andrea made! I use it on my lock screen and it makes me sooooo happy!!! It’s good to keep things around us that remind us to be joyful. Have a wonderful day my friends. Please reach out to Andrea if you have fun commission.
