My adventure begins…
The first night I arrived in Paris I received my room key…40!
I unpacked my suitcase and went straight to Notre Dame. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the sky was. I completely felt out of my element and was feeling a bit of “what were you thinking’? But the minute I saw Notre Dame I knew I had made the right decision.
I lit a candle to begin my journey..
Today is my 40th Birthday…
Birthday breakfast at Cafe de Flore scrambled eggs with ham and a cafe americano.
on my way to the Opera Garnier…
Good to see you again.
The last time I was here I was 23 years old and dreaming of performing here one day.
Life took me in a different direction but no matter the age a girl can still dream!
A room full of Operas!
Found some music I have sung!
A bit of shopping which led me straight to lunch on the 6th floor…
Stew on a cold rainy birthday.
First glimpse of the Eiffel Tower…
Mid-afternoon snack at Eric Kayser.
Walk back to the Hotel to get ready for tonight’s concert at Notre Dame.
Ending the day with French Onion soup at the Luxembourg Cafe near my hotel.
My 40th Birthday is complete!
My sister gave me a beautiful green blouse for my Birthday before I left for Paris.
She told me she was having the hardest time deciding what to get me that had
some meaning and that would always remind me of turning 40.
Her idea was a beautiful green blouse but was having no luck in finding one.
Then, she walked into Anthroplogie and right in the front was this blouse on a
dress form. What was even more crazy was the label…HD in Paris! My initials!
She searched the store for any other clothing by this designer and found
this was the only blouse! I couldn’t believe this story when she told me.
Needless to say I love my green Paris blouse from my amazing sister,
Laura, and will cherish it always!
40 in Paris,

My favorites from Raw and Simple…
HEIRLOOM TOMATO STACKS…PAGE 115
This was so pretty to look at I almost didn’t want to eat it. I literally sat and stared at the glorious stack for a few minutes before I even attempted a bite. I foresee myself making this all summer long. The best way to describe the flavor…fresh!
RED BELL PEPPER HUMMUS…PAGE 85
The perfect snack.
CAULIFLOWER COUSCOUS…PAGE 9o
A perfect light lunch with many different flavors. Even better the next day! Make a big batch and you are set for lunch for the week!
try it with avocado…
NACHO CHEESE DIP…PAGE 86
On the side with cauliflower couscous and whole foods chips (not raw).
EASY APPLE PIE WITH SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE…PAGE 161
Seriously so good! You have to try it to believe it!
These particular recipes have been my favorite so far! I say so far because I have yet to try every recipe in the book. I am sure there will be many more added to this list but for now I can pretty much guarantee you will not be disappointed with any of these recipes. In fact, I think if you try these first you may be surprised on how good raw can taste.
