It being Dove season, thought we would show you one of our favorite ways to prepare these tasty birds. Many opt to bacon-wrap these morsels with a slice of jalapeño, before cooking in the skillet -- we give you the “Jalapeno Bacon-Wrapped Dove Bites”.
Great news! We have squeezed out a few more California Quail tanks (women’s & men’s fits) for our last Sunday of the season at the Cobble Hill Market. Don’t miss out for your last chance to pickup a tee or tank from our summer collection.. once they’re gone, they’re gone! You can also PM us on Instagram or Facebook for stock inquiries. Remember, our $10 pricing goes until the end of the month! 😀🌴🐦#unisextees#menstees#womenstees#californiaquail#quail#graphictees#farmersmarket
I have a real interest in cooking a fried egg on a cast iron skillet -- it’s just sort of the challenge of the morning. One, two, or three eggs? Olive oil, lard, vegetable oil, or butter? Sunny-side up, scrambled, or over-easy?
I had not had the chance to visit Lassen Volcanic NP or Manzanita Lake before we published Casey Cruises California. I had dropped my son in SF to help him move into his first apartment post-college and knew I was not ready to face the empty nest at home so the call to explore Lassen, Manzanita Lake and Brokeoff Mountain filled my heart with the magic of nature and my passion to run the trails and write more and more children's books about the national parks was fueled. Here is our illustrator's rendering of Manzanita Lake in Casey Cruises CA! #childrensbooks#childrensbookwriter#nationalparks#california#californiaquail#manzanitalake#lassenvolcanicnationalpark @lassennps @izzygreer
So first proper attempt with pastels is under way... I've decided to draw a California Quail, there fun and quirky little birds with lots of colour variations. Would love to know what you think so far? Suggestions are welcome to help me improve my technique 😘 K x
