    Omg, I’m so lucky to have stumbled across this post! My grandma’s just come to stay with us, and I wanna make her visit unforgettable. Your collection will definitely help me with that. I especially LOVE rosemary sweet potato casserole with pecans, parmesan truffle deviled eggs, orange and honey roasted brussel sprouts, and oven roasted root vegetables (this will look absolutely beautiful on the table). I’ve saved these recipes for later. I have no doubts they taste like heaven. Can’t wait to make the dishes myself and present them to my family.
    Thank you for this treasure Caroline. Got so much inspiration. I really appreciate all of your hard work and effort. You put so much love into what you’re doing.
