Looking for new posts?

I've been blogging over at Our Sleeping Flowers these days. Still me, and still delicious, come join me!

a few favorite things from the past few days.

standing on my tiptoes to smell a magnolia blossom.
teaching our brunch class, noshing and chatting with five very lovely ladies.
the warm sunny day that forced out blossoms and buds, followed a day later by a snow covered morning that was equally beautiful, but less welcome.
celebrating my sissy's birthday, sushi with the girls. 
seeing the way Jane looks at her daddy. she is infatuated, and I don't blame her.
spending every evening with husband, the times I don't worry about grad school acceptance emails.
being uplifted and edified by inspired words and feelings as we listened to general conference.
I love conference weekend.

and a few things I'm looking forward to this week.

finishing up our "chandelier" - done!
visiting the Carl Bloch exhibit at the Museum of Art.
book group, my house this week.
watching Tangled a few hundred more times.
meeting with Melissa to make some big and exciting plans.
Bijou market.
yum cha with the family to celebrate past birthdays.
making a couple more loaves of this bread, and sipping some raspberry steamed milk, there's a big storm heading this way.

check out Susan's recap of our brunch class here, and Jane's recap here.
And a question for you locals, if we were to repeat the brunch class say... May 7th, would you come?

raspberry steamed milk for one

1 Tablespoon honey, more to taste
1 cup whole milk or almond/coconut milk
2 - 4 Tablespoons raspberries, packed
a drop or two of vanilla extract

Spoon honey into bottom of a mug or cup, set aside.

In a blender, blend the honey, raspberries and milk until smooth. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a saucepan, to remove the seeds. Add the vanilla and bring milk to a low boil.

Transfer the hot milk to a blender. Put lid on blender, and place a kitchen towel over the lid to prevent hot liquid from splashing. Blend on high speed until frothy, about a minute. Pour into glass. enjoy.

- Multiply the ingredient measurements according to number of desired servings.
- You can seep a cinnamon stick with the milk as well, to add spice.
- Because the raspberry juice is acidic, it may curdle the milk a little but it does not mean the milk is inedible, blending it makes it smooth again.


  1. that raspberry steamed milk.....oh boy...i'd love a cup of that right this minute. every single thing you and Melissa made at brunch was top notch. i look forward to making each of them on my own. Makes me want to come back on May 7th to get that deliciousness again. Thanks for doing these classes! They make me real happy.

  2. Yes please redo the class but not on May 7. That is the only day I can't do it. ( of course)


  3. hey Jen. we haven't met, but i've been following your blog for some time. i am friends with susan who just came to your class & i've been out of town for each class you've had so far... i would LOVE to come may 7th if you choose to do a repeat!
