…is a promise to bake! So, here’s the story: I spent all of last week at the beach, and when I came back the temperature had dropped 20 degrees. What’s up with that? My dreams of endless summer are now dashed, but I do confess that there are things I like about fall. My positive reaction to the chilly weather is to stay inside and bake. My Facebook status declared this “the week of baking” but my busy schedule is keeping me out of the house, so I might amend it to “the month of baking.” But oh, boy, I’m a little nervous about following through with this declaration. I got a lot of Facebook feedback, but we all know my complicated relationship with the kitchen. Nevertheless, I’ve always enjoyed baking, and I prefer the exactness of it to cooking (what is a dash and a pinch anyway??). I have a few easy but tasty recipes on deck for this month, and I welcome your suggestions. Last night I dreamed about cupcake/muffin liners. Hundreds and hundreds of them spilling off my shelves…all of them super cute, of course. I decided it’s time for another bakeware-to-die-for roundup. Click on the pics to go to the product page. Won’t you join me and make a promise to bake?
