one thing i love about spring is going to our local greenhouse and picking out herbs and house plants. it's like a reward for surviving the winter. our home owners association doesn't allow us to plant gardens outside, so i started a small one in my kitchen. this also gave me an excuse to use some of my glass flower pots.
clockwise from top left i have mint in a milk glass hobnail pot, ranunculus in a mckee jadite jardiniere, last year's basil in a smaller milk glass hobnail pot, new basil in an enamel dish, garlic in a ceramic pot, and ranunculus bulbs in a jadite bulb bowl.

every once in a while, you need to put food on your glassware ;). i don't think i've ever put a recipe on this blog, but i found one that is worthy. not long ago rachel over at young adventures posted a salted caramel brownie recipe that looked scrumptious. having a sweet tooth the size of texas, i decided to make some of my own. the recipe took me a while to make, but it was worth it. they were hands down the best brownies i've ever tasted. check out the recipe here.
