I have said before that baking is like therapy to me.  Maybe its measuring out the soft flour.  Maybe its the smell of the comforting vanilla.  Maybe its following a set of directions to get a scrumptious end result.  I don’t know.  But I know I like it, and have for quite some time.  I have a favorite cookbook.  My husband actually bought it many years ago because he will occasionally have cooking sprees where he makes fantastic dishes that we get to enjoy, and a friend of ours had this cookbook and raved about it.  You can see by the looks of it that it has been used quite a bit…

But you would also notice, if you were looking at it, that there are definitely pages on the inside of it that have noticeably had some wear and tear…

And if you could read these worn pages, you would notice something peculiar… they are all pages with recipes for cakes and cookies.  Sure, there are great recipes for chicken and rice with tomatoes and white wine, fettuccine with porcini cream sauce, and steamed broccoli with orange-ginger dressing and walnuts, but my fingers always go to the sweet, sugary goodness towards the back…  Even as I am thumbing through the cookbook now, some of the recipes sound completely amazing… I should venture into the other pages a little more.   I may find relaxation in the aroma of lemon zest, rosemary, and garlic…

    […] mix ingredients up and put them in the oven and create a tasty treat (as I’ve written about before ), and sometimes I get the itch to create candy as well.  Usually this is at Christmas time, when […]

I got to take my own kids out for a photo shoot yesterday.  I was so excited that I think I had butterflies in my stomach on the way to our location.  We didn’t have anywhere we needed to be all afternoon or evening.  I was excited about finally shooting at the train station.  My kids are super cute. 😉  This one is typical of a shoot with my 3 sweeties —  I try to make them laugh, but it is the youngest who succeeds.  He can lift anyone’s spirits and get a room giggling in no time.

These two just stepped out of People Magazine.  Well, maybe not yet, but do not be surprised to find Justin in a copy of Bon Appetit in the near future!  He and his new bride just moved (away from us 🙁 ) so that he could attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (yes, CIA)… seriously, a school where AMAZING chefs have attended and cooked and gone on to HUGE things.  This is where they are headed.  I have had the pleasure of eating food prepared by him (and her), and I was blown away. 

Have I mentioned how beautiful Korina is???  Girl, you have the best smile…

Woa.

Not only do they make fabulous food, they are hilarious.  Here is Korina imitating Paula Poundstone… 

I love this…

We had to stop and get cannolis at the Italian Deli that they introduced me to.  OH deliciousness.

We miss you both TONS and hope that the CIA is treating you well.  We hope to be one of your first customers at The French Laundry, or whever you end up ;-).  We are so blessed to have met you!!
