Happy 2017!

Posted on


So it’s a new year!  I know I’ve been MIA for more than a while now and I did promise (if you’ve been following me of the Facebook) that I’d post something before the new year.  But I thought I’d wait until today, you know new year / new start and all.  And this ain’t even food-related, just a little reintroduction of sorts.

Don’t know who this dog is, but he looks a lot like my Cooper!
Not much has really changed for me. Met some new folks, tried to reconnect with others, ended relationships, realized I need more musicals in my life (go see La La Land and Sing!!!  Like right now), failed at being a pastry chef… again (more on that later maybe).  The dogs are still doing dog things, although Daisy has been upping her counter surfing lately, work is still providing a paycheck, and gas will be going up in price around $0.07 per gallon today.  Life goes on.

Here’s Daisy acting all sweet, right before she pulled a pack of dinner rolls off of the counter. And there’s Cooper in his usual half-asleep stupor.
I got the chance to eat at some fun places and I’m falling in love with the Eastern Market more and more. I’m still baking and cooking but just not writing about it.  No groundbreaking work, but I’m always trying some new angle on things.  Weirdly I’m making more meringues (I made some gianduja-stuffed ones for Christmas) and shortbread type things.  I’m gonna have a dumpling party soon so I can write about that!

Anyhoo, I’ll do better about posting and hopefully y’all haven’t forgotten about me.  Any questions, just ask.  Here’s to 2017 and y’all leave Mariah Carey alone!  Team Mariah for life!
