It is my firm belief that routine helpings of reasonably decadent desserts are the key to general success in life. In fact, it’s not my best quality, but I have a hard time getting through my
day morning writing and sketching without some sort of sweet something vanishing in front of me. Today and tomorrow are no different for me. And, as I am not especially fond of spending excessive amounts of time in my kitchen (as my kitchen has just one single drawer in it), I am so very lucky to have met a greathearted local friend like Sara Schneider. Not only is she wise and resourceful beyond her years, she is also an extraordinary baker. If I were to sum up her baking talents (which I won’t because it would take too long, and I’m likely to drool), my synopsis would include a series of mouthwatering photographs such as THIS, THIS and THIS, with sugary, creamy, buttery thoughts of uber-moist goodness topped with pure artistry and slivers and splashes of colors—all remarkably captured by her oh-so-talented photographer husband Doug Schneider. Sara is pure amazingness. And, in just a few days, MY BOOK will visit with her. (Have fun, Book! And don’t forget where you came from!) Why am I telling you this? So I can lure you into to checking out the Sara Bakes Cakes scene right HERE and you can drool from now until Thursday. Update: HERE is the One and Only Sara making cackleberry sprouts with her kids–a project right from Chapter 5.
Have fun! And, don’t forget: there’s still time to enter my BOOK GIVEAWAY right HERE!
