Our favorite artist from San Diego, CA creates the most beautiful and ornate jewelry...
She is inspired by Victorian, French Art Nouveau, Georgian, and Mexican design from the 1930’s-1940’s. But it is the particular element with its imperfect beauty, faded elegance, and time worn patina that begins every new design. With such a dimensional and diverse history she has landed on top as a favorite California jewelry designer...




Jan Barboglio's San Pasqual

Does your Valentine love to cook??👩‍🍳♥️Add a touch of old Mexico charm to your kitchen with Jan Barboglio's San Pasqual Statue. It features San Pasqual figure created from weathered cast stone stone holding a hand forged fork, spoon, and bird, on a removable stand. Measures approximately 6" x 6" x 12". San Pasqual Patron Saint of Kitchens is also the patron saint of cooks, sheep, shepherds, and Eucharistic congresses and affiliated associations.

Born into poverty as Paschal Baylon in 1540, San Pasqual Patron Saint of Kitchens lived a life of humble servitude. He often shared his food with the poor.


His commitment to the faith sent him to France, where he defended the Real Presence against heretics. He served as a shepherd, cook, porter, gardener, and alms beggar.

Many people claim to have witnessed miracles at his tomb. These miracles, paired with San Pasqual's kindness and generosity towards the poor and sick, and his unwavering dedication to the Holy Eucharist, led to his canonization in 1690.

His feast is now observed annually on May 17.

This San Pasqual Saint statue is the perfect addition to any kitchen.

Romanced by the history and beauty of old Mexico, Jan Barboglio creates idyllic, hand-forged decorative pieces that will grace any home. All of her pieces are accompanied by a meaningful poem, sentiment, or proverb, and make wonderful housewarming, wedding, birthday gifts!

Ingredients
Fresh Strawberry Lemonade Pie
1 prebaked pie crust
1 jar Strawberry Lemonade Jelly (Pick up at Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
1 packet unflavored gelatin
2 pounds fresh strawberries, chopped
Zest from 1 lemon
2 cups heavy cream
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Directions


Pour Strawberry Lemonade Jelly into a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer, whisking until smooth. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and continue to whisk until all clumps are blended in and it has turned into a smooth glaze.
Place chopped strawberries in a large bowl with 1 Tablespoon of the lemon zest. Pour the jelly mixture over the strawberries and toss to coat, ensuring that all of the strawberries are well coated.
Pour strawberry mixture into prebaked pie crust. Place the pie in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour to allow the interior to set.
When you are almost ready to serve the pie, place the heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whip until the cream has thickened. Add the powdered sugar and lemon juice and continue to beat until stiff peaks are formed. Spread over the top of the strawberries before serving. Serve chilled.
