So I know I have been hinting at a major collaboration over the past two weeks. Well today is the day that I am letting you in on the big secret...this is what happens when dinner meets dessert.
Let me introduce you to Carol Meche, author of the blog Crème de la Carol, a lifestyle blog filled with delicious baked treats, fashion, DIY projects, and life's moments. Carol and I go back a couple of years where we worked together at Anthropologie, and have stayed good friends ever since.
And something VERY important about Carol is that she is one of the best bakers I have ever known...seriously some of the best cookies I have EVER eaten! Well, anything she makes actually is divine! Which is great for me since I rarely bake. On top of that she has great witty humor and a fabulous sense of style that is totally different from mine...yet another reason we balance each other out.
You can see why we get along...see here we are cracking ourselves up. :)
Since moving back to Louisiana, Carol and I have been in cahoots to start something that uses both of our backgrounds in fashion and art and utilizes our unique strengths in the kitchen.
From this collision of savory and sweet, Satsuma Supper Club was born. It will be a delicious mix of my dinner creations and of her baking sensations, of course fabulous cocktails, DIY decorating, and other tips on how to throw a dinner party without a hitch. The great news is, we will be sharing all of the recipes and tips with all of you on our blogs so that you can recreate anything that grabs your interest.
Our first event is this Saturday, wish us luck!
And don't worry next week you will be the first to hear about all of it...the good, the oh we wish we would have, and the oh man that was fun details!
Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to get sneak peek shots:
