Big Dreams

Me hanging out in Malibu

I have been working on a big dream of mine. I have faced a big obstacle but am going to continue on the quest of this dream and am so determined to make it happen! It's hard for me to post regularly on here because between working on this project and running my catering company, and being a mom to my wonderful son....I have no time! I do plan on posting regularly someday but for now....I will do what I can. I was in California for a few days this week and was lucky enough to spend a few days with my sister Kovan. It is so beautiful out there and it's so strange being back in seems so quite here! Though I have to admit that it will be nice to sleep in my own bed! Much love to you all! Avesta

Aaahhhh Melinda and Emil!

Here's a wedding I did this past Fall. The bride and groom are such wonderful people and I am so glad that I've gotten to know them better. The bride Melinda has amazing taste and picked out wonderful food and decor. Which mind you, she made almost all the decorations herself! She owns a design and invitation company called , Revival Design Company ( please check it out because her prices and services are amazing! Melinda is from Nebraska and her husband Emil is from Brooklyn, NY....what a great mix of guests! It was a lot of fun and I truly enjoyed catering this wedding because everything was just so perfect! :)

I loved Melinda's choice of colors....gray and yellow. It was so beautiful!

Sushi Appetizers


Smoked Fish Canapes (for the Russian groom)

More Smoked Fish Canapes

Wishing you Melinda and Emil years of love, laughter and of course lots of good food!

It's been awhile.....I know......

I've been MIA from my blog. Life has been quite hectic and trying these past few months and I've decided that I only want to post when I felt it in my heart and soul. I haven't stopped cooking of course because you know that's what I do for a living but as far as posting.....well....I just needed to straighten some things in my life and head before I could continue on here. I am starting to feel the need to post again so I am preparing some great post entries and will be making a return! I hope you all have survived this horribly cold and long winter and I look forward to sharing my world with you again. Much love, Avesta

This is a shout out to my beloved Buckeyes who are playing today in the NCAA Tournament against Georgia Tech! Go Bucks!
