NEW! Recipes that are inexpensive, healthful and truly easy to prepare. It’s called “The Five Dollar Foodie.” Visit our website and let us know what you think: thefivedollarfoodie.com.
 
LOOK FOR. . . Carol’s essays in beautiful Victoria Magazine, starting in January 2019! As writer-in-residence, Carol’s personal essays on books, art, food, gardening and home life will appear in every issue.
 
THANKS to readers of “House at Royal Oak” who continue to write us. It is gratifying to know that our experiences have much in common. Carol and Hugo, her husband and partner in the Royal Oak adventures, enjoy answering all letters and email from readers.
 
THANKS, too, to the wonderful cooks and art lovers who joined us at the San Diego Museum of Art for “A French Impressionist Picnic.”  Carol’s daughters Lucy and Amanda, able assistants for the daylong cooking program and lecture, kept everything running smoothly.
 
. . . AND to the art lovers, tea drinkers, and volunteer bakers who celebrated springtime with  “An Impressionists’ Tea” at the Sturgis Library on Cape Cod. Following a talk by Carol on the culinary and tea-drinking traditions of these great artists, all enjoyed tea and Monet’s favorite almond cake.
