If you're wondering why you see food featured on my blog quite a bit, the answer is simple. I love to spend time in the kitchen, and baking and cooking is a big part of my life. I often receive emails asking if we actually eat all of the sweets we bake. Well, yes and no. If we're entertaining, which is often, then I serve it as dessert. However, there are many days when I bake up something (like these almond meringue cookies I made today) and we happen to be the only ones home.
That's when I like to treat neighbors and friends with a little surprise from the kitchen. With a ready supply of cellophane bags and small boxes, I have everything I need to venture out for some spontaneous gift giving. Our friends love us and so do our waistlines.
