Dear Friends


Please know that I have not abandoned my blog. I have just been knee deep in wedding planning this past week. Everything seems to be coming together at once, and we are trying to keep everything straight! I'm also busy making wedding favors for our guests. Unfortunately during all of this, my baking is suffering! I do know that soon I will be in need of a good stress reliever and will soothe myself with dough or batter or hot sugar. Until then, know that I am thinking of baking, wanting to be baking and waiting for the day that I can be baking (although this is seriously overshadowed by thoughts of being joined to the love of my life this spring, that thought is dancing around in my head like a flock of sugar plum fairies!). In the meantime, here is a link to the most awesome prize I won in the Menu for Hope raffle, an event I hope to contribute more to next year other than my donation for raffle bids. The prize is from Meeta at What's for lunch, honey? and I look forward to receiving Dorie's book and trying out some of her recipes! Soon I will be able to bake...soon.... and being one that cannot post without a photo, the photo at the beginning of this post is a closeup of my headpiece (look away, G!).

Forget the ipod and the digi cam and the photo studio in a box and the countless dinners to amazing restos, the Dorie book trumps them all! You will be making completely awesome things from this book in no time!

Brilynn, Oh, I know! I cannot wait. I've been reading about your love of Dorie, and it all looks so good! I'll be like a kid in a candy store pouring over the recipes :D

Your headpiece is lovely, Jen! Wedding planning is a good reason for not posting in your blog, of course we understand... ;o) And it's a period you should really cherish! We'll be here when you get back...

Edyta said...

I agree with Cinara :) enjoy the planning!

The headpiece is delicate and beautious - I hope you will post pictures of the dress and of course--the cake!

Cinara: Thanks so much, I loved it when I first saw it! We are having much fun with the planning....I think we will have some weird form of withdrawal once we are all done :)

Edyta: Thank you! I am having fun with it. Making the favors is really allowing me some fun creative time!

San Francisco Sweet Tooth: Aww, thank you! I never imagined myself a tiara kind of chick, but when I saw it I knew it had to be...I'll post pictures of the cake and everything else when it's all over! :D.
