I'll Bring Dessert

Confession: When I first started baking, I had ulterior motives. You see I learned a long time ago that it's very hard not to like the person who's supplying you with tasty treats. So what better way to difuse a hostile situation than with fresh baked brownies? I may not be the richest friend, or the prettiest one...but I can be counted on to pull through in the dessert department.

True Story: The first time Barb invivted me for lunch she suggested I could either bring dessert or a salad. When I offered to bring dessert she informed me I had made the right choice and that she couldn't be friends with someone who would bring salad when given that choice. And that is how I knew we were destined to be bffs.

And now here we are, embarking on this little culinary adventure together. I hope to broaden my horizons into the realm of "healthy food" or at the very least cook more than desserts all year. My husband is hoping he doesn't get stuck eating cereal for dinner too often. And my son hopes I can get all this cooking done during nap time. I guess only time will tell.

Here's to a year of new recipes as well as familiar favorites.
Here's to learning new things and sharing secrets.
Here's to two foodie friends inviting others to join in on the fun.


  1. So very glad you picked dessert!

  2. Um. How did you two scheme this all up and not tell me! I'm way excited! I am always looking for good recipes! Could you throw in a veggie meal every once in awhile??? ;)
