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

“In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life, — no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature”
