Take a Tour with Me at My California Home: March
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.

“The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence. Nature never wears a mean appearance. Neither does the wisest man extort her secret, and lose his curiosity by finding out all her perfection. Nature never became a toy to a wise spirit. The flowers, the animals, the mountains, reflected the wisdom of his best hour, as much as they had delighted the simplicity of his childhood."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature”
