And you know what that means.....HOT weather! It seems like a never ending story. I get a little down during the summer months because I don't like to turn the oven on more than I already have to and it turn means no cupcakes or brownies. As soon as Fall hits I'm back in the baking saddle! Eagerly counting down the days until I smell fresh sweetness wafting through the house and a cuppa just sitting there waiting for me with honey and cream. For now a still life of inspiration will have to be suffice.
As a child you could find me on my head more than on my feet so says my mom. A twirler of batons & dare devil gymnast that was me. An abundance of energy + a big back yard = a perfect match!
You could also find me in the kitchen cooking and baking with my mom. I know she probably wouldn't want me to blab this to the world but back in the 70's she took cooking lessons from Julia Child and belonged to 2 gourmet cooking clubs so you can only imagine how many different things I tasted growing up!
I am constantly inspired by the world around me and all of the wonderful talented people I find in "real life" and online that I seem to have a very long bucket list that so far only has a few drops at the bottom! May it never be filled to the top...
