  1. Like the fact that the party was at YOUR house isn't enough of a tease...you have to taunt us with the delicious food, too?? Annie, you are too cruel, really :0)

    Much love,


  2. PS: Lavender is my favorite cupcake flavor, so if there are any lavender walnut macaroons left over, feel free to send them on across the pond, as I'm sure they will be loved and appreciated (and eaten!)

  3. Wow, Yummy! Wish I could have been there! Love your spirit Annie!

  4. It is 4 AM and I am hungry now for some of those yummy appetizers! Wow...the names alone make one drool,

  5. This all looks so delicious!! Congratulations on the book launch.

  6. YUM... this new workbook looks delicious.
