The Month in Review - April 2014

After a chilly and rainy April, I'm happy to say that spring seems to have finally arrived in New York.  The trees are flowering, the tulips are in bloom and the days are getting wonderfully long.  I've come to love the hour between 7:00 and 8:00 pm the most.  The work day is done but there's still plenty of light, a gentle breeze coming in through the open windows and dinner is on the stove.

The Month in Review - April 2014

And speaking of dinner, the month brought plenty of the cooking and cocktail making that go on regularly in my kitchen.  April saw a whole bunch of veggies, a few cookies and lots of cheer.  Enjoy!
