Today is a most lovely, perfect spring day in Houston...the kind you want to bottle up and savor every day: clear blue skies, warm, dry weather with a nice cool breeze. It also happens to be my birthday.
Every spring, I feel the power of rebirth in the air - so I love that my birthday comes during this season. I believe one's birthday is like a personal "new year" celebration - we get to begin another year and celebrate our wonderful, precious lives.
I've been in a nurturing, nesting kind of mood, and the best way I know how to nest is to bake for our family. So, I'm so excited that my birthday gift from my family is the King Arthur's Baking Companion. I've had my eye on this cookbook for years, and when I finally found it at our local library, I fell in love!
I'd like to make a toast: to birthdays, new beginnings and amazing new recipes!
