We start with one line...

For all writers,
this is where it begins.

...a basic idea, a single line. 
To that line, we add another,
and another.

As the lines add up,
the story grows...

...and grows...

...until our new work takes shape,
and, eventually, it's finished!

Then what?

Hey, what's that building behind
our Union Square sidewalk artist?

A bookstore. Great! 
Let's go inside...

...because today is the day our own
Krista Davis' new work is
(officially) finished.

Congratulations, Krista, on the release of
your 5th Domestic Diva mystery, 

Cleo Coyle
I already have my copy, and I'm looking forward to diving into it later this week. The reviews are excellent, by the way. If you missed Lesa Holstine's post on The Diva Haunts the House, you can read it here. 

As for today's recipe, Krista inspired that, as well. She's shared so many amazing recipes on this blog, that it was hard to choose which one to celebrate. 

Then, over the weekend, my husband and I enjoyed a lovely brunch that included Krista's recipe for Rosti potatoes. We make these all the time, using Krista's tips, so I snapped a few photos, and thought, hey, everyone should make these--and I'll bet our newer followers never saw this recipe.

If you’ve heard of the dish but never attempted it, here's your chance. Krista will teach you the simple technique that I now use, and you can, too. Just click here for her recipe and eat with joy!

Rosti Potatoes a la Krista Davis!
