Pistacia Vera

541 South Third Street

Located in Historic German Village, this is my favorite made from-scratch patisserie. Each item is made by-hand with exceptional care. They specialize in classic European technique, yet have an unmistakable character of their own.

Herb Crate

I have been itching to get outside and dig in some dirt....
...so I decided to make a little counter top herb garden for my kitchen.
My mom gave me a vintage crate, it is perfect for holding all my little pots.
Basil / Dill / Rosemary / Cilantro / Chives / Thyme 

What herbs do you like to grow?!
