November 19th – “You’ve met your match, but is that such a bad thing? Winning all the time is boring.”

Rainy days are the best time for baking. I fantasized about making an array of cookies, cakes, and breads this weekend, but I didn’t get very far.

I made chocolate chip cookies this afternoon.


Thirty minutes later, all of these goodies showed up at my door.


A few friends and I have birthdays this coming week which always coincide with the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. While I expected more desserts than usual, I didn’t think it would start until Monday.

There were two oversized creamed horns,


one tiramisu slice,


one red velvet slice,


one taro brulee slice,


one strawberry roll,


one strawberry tiramisu slice (I didn’t know there was such a thing until now!),


and two mystery flavor mochis.


I love desserts, and on a few occasions, have even eaten entire cakes by myself. These cakes, mochis, and horns are going to sit in my frig tonight untouched. I don’t know how I’m going to eat all of this. Frankly, I’m intimidated.

I’ve met my match.

Dessert baking is officially banned at my house until next month. The stars sure find creative ways to redirect my path.

I guess it’s time to get started on my next Alice Hoffman novel.
