Love people. Cook them good food.

On our way home from a Savannah wedding we stopped at the Le Cruset distribution outlet. While I loved oogling at all of the beautiful enamel colors, a large pot was not in our budget at the present moment. There was a tiny pot that was, and I have a feeling it will make me happy every morning for a very long time. A cheery little yellow honey pot sits below our hanging mugs awaiting a twirl of the honey comb in my morning tea!

I'm a big believer in the little things, the little details, that make all the difference. I spotted this bumper sticker on the front door upon visiting a spice store on the hunt for star anise to brine pork chops with and I loved it and decided it shall live on my fridge. "Love people. Cook them tasty food." Love it.

Love the store from which it came: Penzy's Spices. If you have one near you, it's worth a visit. Star anise at my local grocery store was almost $10 for a bottle but at the spice store it was a little over $2 for a packet. I've found this to be true with lots of spices, especially the pricier ones like Saffron & real vanilla extract. Love to cook? It's worth a trip!
