Munich with Friends

posted in: Europe | 0
 Yes, I know it’s been a while since I posted a travel journal, but if you were really THAT into reading my stuff, you would have bought one of my latest books, either paperback or ebook, and be deep into that! I forgive you, but you really should go to my website and buy one. Right now. I was honored with a mention in Ann Martin’s All Things Paper blog this month. Ann has been instrumental in my quilling and paper art endeavors. I was thrilled she wanted to post one of my photos on her blog.

On with the show. It’s been a year full of travel, I’m happy to report. And it isn’t slowing down, so there are lots of tales to come. Let me start in Munich, Germany, where my husband flew in for a visit in April and some great friends of ours from Florida met us there for four days. I don’t think we’ll ever be the same, and I might say the same about the city!

I met my husband James at the airport early on a Sunday and we took the train to the city center. First we had a breakfast of Weisswurst on Marienplatz, site of the famed Glockenspiel. Our friends Cyndie and Bram showed up later in the day after we’d checked into our hotel. We were all staying at the same place, the Hotel Schlicker, just off Marienplatz. Cyndie had found it online, and boy did we luck out! What a great place – I highly recommend it. One of these days I’ll write a review of it! read more

  A Travel for Taste – Collected Czech Family Recipes

I’m thrilled to announce that today is the official release of my latest book:

A Travel for Taste – Collected Czech Family Recipes!
It is a revision of the first edition which included some non-Czech recipes. I rewrote it to include only Czech recipes. This new one has additional recipes as well.

The best part of the book to me is the fact that the recipes are introduced by stories and photos from my travels. Each recipe has a narrative about how I came to have the recipe. And each dish is an authentic family recipe from Czech friends. read more
