We Have A Winner

High praise to those of you who can make bread without having flour everywhere in the kitchen. A new cookbook arrived, and after thumbing through it, I decided to make the Grilled Flatbread with Rosemary and Garlic Oil. It was a Sunday morning, and we would get to enjoy veggie flatbread sandwiches for lunch.
I rarely buy cookbooks these days...there are so many wonderful recipes right here in Blogland. This cookbook is my style....good food....good life.  And I love the photos in the book, especially Curtis Stone, his wife and adorable children. 
The summer heat has returned, and this week it will be in the 90's. The mornings are lovely for breakfast on the deck, and the flowers are loving the rain we finally got.
The winner of the Voyage of Life giveaway is: Bev Sunderman. Bev found my blog several years ago when she was planning a funraising event and looking for tablesetting ideas. She doesn't blog but does email me on a regular basis. Congratulations Bev!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. The book does look good..I bet the flatbreads were should..could be a spokesperson for MC..:) Those cupcakes/breads/ on the table look great too!

  2. I don't buy cookbooks much any more either, Debbie, but I'll bet Curtis Stone's will be a nice addition for your collection. Your flatbread looks tasty and your outdoor tablescape looks so pretty with all your MC decor.
    I hope you had a fabulous birthday weekend, my friend!
    Congratulations to Bev in winning those pretty notecards.

  3. I too am a member of the Flour Everywhere Cooking Club:@) Your bread looks great Debbie!

  4. Debbie, I'll check out the book. My chef is back to baking bread on a regular basis. While in Santa Fe, I bought him a cookbook, FLAVOR FLOUR by Alice Medric, on different types of flours as well as some fresh milled Hard Red Spring flour. The flat bread looks delicious. Will pass this along.

  5. Flour mostly all over me, but also the floor :) Your flat bread look really delicious! Congrats to your winner. I can imagine why she reached out to your with your gorgeous table settings :)

  6. My flour always ends up in the edge of my granite countertop - drat the fancy edge!
    The flatbread looks fabulous. I always start baking bread again this time of year, and the scale always goes up too!! Haha!! Worth it!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
