  • A food editor’s kitchen

    A few weeks ago I wrote a bit about meeting the food editor of FairLady magazine, Nikki Werner. Well, over the weekend she sent me this pic of her sweet dollshouse of a kitchen. Just a sec.

    What’s for Supper 5

    Last week, I was very glad to meet the food editor of FairLady magazine, Nikki Werner. She’s the one who writes these What’s For Supper recipes that I illustrate each month.
