I had some chemo related nausea after my first treatment so Gina made me some candied ginger which is supposed to help ease it. I’ve got a good supply ready for next week. It’s very strong and hopefully more healthy than the store bought variety.
Busy baking day at the Blitstein family kitchen today. Strawberry Scones and some Nutella filled PopTarts. I had a bit of trouble with the dough at first but they ended up coming out just fine.
Chocolate chip next time I’m thinking.
“Oh, this is the best cake in a cup ever. This guy is unbelievable. He ran the old Cup ‘o Cake guy out of business. People come from all over to eat this.”

Food as Art: Cloud 9 Confections, a local bakery, makes artfully decorated cookies and obscenely decadent cupcakes. For someone who makes food to be eaten, not viewed, I am in awe of such talent.
A lovely photo Gina took of the Lilac in the park behind our house.
Gina made her homemade sour cream coffee cake. It has this amazing crumble inside it and the cake itself is just perfect. It smells and tastes even better than it looks.
