Double, double toil and trouble…! Halloween is one of my most favorite occasions for decorating – anything and everything. That means creating incredibly cute and spooky treats for kids and adults, when my boys start brainstorming on what their ultimate halloween costume will be this year (that’s also me calculating in my head how much time and money this year’s outfits will cost!), and it means we’re in the thick of the fall season.
‘Tis the season for the dead, and nobody does it up quite like us Angelenos. Here, Halloween rolls right into Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with an explosion of marigolds, costumes, and vibrantly colored sweets.
I love purple Valentine’s Day cookies. Because why should pink have all the fun? I mean really. Purple is energetic and elegant at the same time.
Ever heard of a place called Valley Wells? It was THE place to be as a kid during the hot summer days in Trona, California, where my Grandma Tory lived.
