Hummingbird IV

Continuing the Kitchen Window series…

A collection of prints and stationery cards based on watercolor paintings of wildlife seen from The Daily Morsel’s kitchen window.

This gorgeous hummingbird, swoops back and forth above the hazelnut trees, chirping away, before flying to the feeder.  Once fed, it’s back to swooping above the trees.

We at The Daily Morsel love watching the hummingbirds while working on new recipes.  They zip about from the feeder to the trees, and chasing each other.   My husband has named them the Napa Air Force.

Stay tuned for more hummingbirds and other wildlife.

To purchase a print of this little hummingbird visit The Daily Morsel’s new Etsy shop here.

Happy New Year!

Lichtenstein on a Cake

Happy New Year!

I made this Lichtenstein red velvet cake from my new cookbook – Modern Art Desserts by Caitlin Freeman.  I’ll post a review of the book soon.

I created a different decoration for the top of the cake.  The original recipe instructed the decoration for red Benday Dots.  I chose a cropped section of a 1966 Newsweek Cover, by Lichtenstein, which seemed very fitting for a New Year’s Eve celebration.

Happy 2014!
