MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Espresso Love Visits NJ …


Anyone who knows me, or reads my blog, knows what a big fan of Espresso Love I am.  You can read here my blog post last February about my obsession with EL’s blueberry scones.. and how I bring them back from MV and hoard them in the freezer.  We bring their coffee beans home too because it’s not just the scones, it’s the COFFEE as well. In our opinion Espresso Love has the best coffee on MV.

Imagine my surprise and delight when I found out Carol McManus, the owner of EL, was going to be in NJ today doing a book signing for her new cook book, Table Talk: Food, Family, Love, A Cookbook. The book signing was at Pennington Market, only a little over an hour away, so that’s where Deb and I headed this morning.

We saw Carol as soon as we walked in, she recognized me and greeted me with a big hug.  I introduced my daughter Deb and we chatted about blueberry scones, among other things.  We picked up ingredients for Carol’s lemon meringue pie, which Deb will assemble since she’s the baker in the family.

It was nice to see Carol and pick up her beautiful cookbook. As always I look forward to saying ‘hi’ to her when I stop in at Espresso Love for my supply of blueberry scones and coffee beans.

This was the second weekend in a row with an MV connection... I guess if I can’t get there then it’s coming to me in dribs and drabs.  <grin>


Update: Lemon Meringue Pie

Deb made the pie this afternoon.  The consensus is that Carol’s recipe is one of the best we’ve ever tasted.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
