Not being the first person to run to the kitchen when sweets are put out


I work in an office where people are always sharing food.  People bring in cakes.  They put out muffins, scones, and croissants, like there ain’t no tomorrow.  It’s hard n a girl who likes to eat.

I’m trying to avoid the kitchen area but it takes much strength.

And when I get an email saying “Goodies in the kitchen!” I’m trying not run the 100 yard dash getting over there.

Sweets, I will resist you!


Me vs. Cake

Being thin is a choice. Maybe it isn't for everyone. Some people seem to be born 
thin. For me to get thin, it will be a choice. It means time after time making 
the choice to say no to cake. And cookies.  And brownies. And ice cream. And 
fudge. I think you get the picture.  :)

Sweetness and the lightest and meltiest of cake

as if your grains were beaten by a million rocks

smooth and silky on my tongue

your cream filling so soft and whipped

my mouth doesn’t know where cake begins and filling ends

a perfect taste

not too sweet


it has been years since I have eaten you

you were too artificial, too indestructible for my organic and healthy tastes

but upon learning that you would exist no more

I had another and expected not to like you much

I was wrong

golden creaminess


My Birthday Party – Young At Heart

I celebrated my birthday over the weekend.  It was a very small gathering.  I had a Hello Kitty  theme.  Yes, I am 49 years old.  Call me forever young and quirky but I like Hello Kitty and that’s what I wanted.

I baked my birthday cake.  It was a recipe from CakeSpy that I found on Serious Eats.  It turned out so well.

It was the best cake I’ve ever baked and I owe it all to the recipe!  Yum.  I think everyone liked it.  I had a few friends at the party.

My husband and I were there, of course.

And my poor Mother who was horrified that I was 49 having a Hello Kitty party!  LOL

We tried to light 49 candles but it took too long and we gave up less than halfway through.  😦

It was a great party, and exactly what I wanted!  🙂
