Take a Tour with Me at My California Home: June
The Pointe is a quaint, seaside community. It is nestled in the Orange Coast of California. The town is situated beachside along the pristine Pacific Ocean, between magnificent cliffs and headlands. Residents have nicknamed it the “California Riviera”. The town was established during the 1920s along state route 1, between Los Angeles and San Diego. Kite-flying, boat races, golf, and surfing drew crowds and residents to the promontory. Actor James Cagney was drawn here to open a movie theater. The Pointe is bold, panoramic, and truly alluring.
Cooking and entertaining is an opportunity to share with family and friends. Growing up I learned the basics of good cooking, baking, entertaining, gardening, and entrepreneurship. The Pointe in the location and Viven is Spanish for living life. And living in this fabled locale serves as a delicious bakery and idea-factory.

“Nature says, — he is my creature, and maugre all his impertinent griefs, he shall be glad with me. Not the sun or the summer alone, but every hour and season yields its tribute of delight; for every hour and change corresponds to and authorizes a different state of the mind, from breathless noon to grimmest midnight.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature”
