Sorting through my linen closet in search of table cloths for the upcoming party, I found a little stack of handmade aprons from my great grandma. I love the old details. My mom's side of the family was an impressive DIY group, and truly I think the inspiration for my long-standing interest in kitchen crafts and homemade things.
The "winning hearts and minds cake" from A Homemade Life. It's now safely in the the freezer waiting. I really really hope it keeps as beautifully as Molly says.
I'm slightly appalled that I actually made something requiring three bottles of food coloring, but red velvet cupcakes seemed like such a fine, whimsical addition to my dessert spread. These are also stacked in the freezer for the next 2 weeks. I'm thinking coconut cream cheese frosting. Anyone have any better suggestions?

And fresh radishes. It's amazing how much spicier they are when they come from your own garden. I don't think I can ever go back. Luckily they grow super fast so if you keep reseeding, you'll always have them at the ready. I made a really delicious salad of radish, avocado, cilantro and lime on Sunday. I must make it again and share.
