Together with my dear friend, and talented artist, Linda Marie Clark, we have created a line of occasion cards filled with timeless recipes and beautiful watercolors that are inspired by the moments in our lives when a sense of togetherness matters—regardless of being separated by space and time. Each card has its own source of inspiration and sense of occasion. Eat well, laugh often, and share the love. My classic rustic recipes are brought to life with Linda's vibrant and stunning watercolor interpretations. Explore the complete collection of Watermarc occasion cards!
