I’ve stayed away too long.

And the truth is,

I’ve missed you


More than I ever thought I could miss people I’ve never met or seen or spoken to.

Which only lets me know one thing:

we’re truly



in love.

And I’ll never leave you this long again. 


Forgive me?

    No forgiveness necessary. Hope everything is well on your end. I miss you when you’re not around. Truthfully,if I attempted to make those Hostess-like morsels of deliciousness, I’d be locked in the kitchen for weeks.

    As have I. I do miss you and wish I could make that trip out to California to see you again! Your twinkies and cupcakes may be the best I’ve seen on the blogs and boy does it make me want to make a batch or two. I am glad you showed us how to make the twinkie-shaped tins :-)

    I won’t lie, it’s been hard to visit day after day and drool over the amazing pork you posted about. Those Hostess Cakes will bring new life to my marriage*. You didn’t realize that along with being a fabulous writer and cook, you were a marriage counselor. Did you?

    *My marriage is not really in trouble.
