A morning with Bay Area's Bari Biscotti

As part of my May tasting box (yes, I know it's August. These are backlogged posts), I received two Bari Biscotti; lemon poppy seed and authentic almond. These were a perfect compliment one morning as we were preparing to sell our home. Yes, we have put our house on the market and moved. Pardon the lack of post these last several months. Story of my life! But I guess you now know why.

The timing couldn't have come at a better place in our lives and even though I had dreams of amping up my bungalow kitchen we have now made our contemporary modern house a home. No needed renovations here!

Look what's arrived! My monthly tasting box provided by the folks at is an amazing website filled with crafted, hand-made food by small specialized companies. I first discovered them almost two years ago when they were first on my radar in San Francisco.

With rumors of "the rapture" looming, my monthly tasting box couldn't have come at a better time. I can't wait to share with all of you what was hand picked this month. Stay tuned!

Dilligently thrifting, craigs listing and ebaying for a mid century dining table without having buyer's remorse.

There are so many DIY online sources using what is already right out your front door. On one of our daily walks around the neighborhood we found succulents and moss for plucking.
This idea also sparks another DIY, dressing up our courtyard fire place.

Moss Graffiti!
