absence


Sorry I have not posted in so long but life has gotten crazy. A short break has turned into an extended absence and I'm not quite sure when I will be back. Just to reassure any readers who may remain -- there is nothing serious going on, and I do continue baking (I'm afraid of what my coworkers would do to me if I didn't) but I haven't managed to fit the blogging in with everything else. Mostly my extra time has been taken up commuting to work on my bicycle instead of driving, an excellent way to get some exercise into a busy day and to have one less car on the road, but terrible for the blogging.

The other big news is that Chris and I will be in Oregon on Monday June 9th and will be getting married on June 15th. :) My good friend Lindsay has done most of the heavy lifting for the wedding planning so I don't even have that as an excuse for not blogging -- it's just been a busy Spring. We are planning to do a very basic cake ourselves and I will hopefully get pictures of that and the story posted when we get back to Maryland. (lemon pound cake with raspberry jam between the layers, covered in lemon buttercream and then topped with plain white fondant -- since this is a foodie blog and all.)
