My blog has been up and running for almost two months now and I continue to be amazed at how much fun this is! Not only do I have a creative outlet to funnel my love of cooking, writing, photography and decorating, but I have followers from all around the world to share this with...SO COOL!!
One of the reasons for choosing to kick things off on a Wednesday (aka. hump day) - I don`t know about you, but I tend to need something to help me stay engaged throughout the week...but the more important reason for this day is that April 25th marks the birthday of Norma, (Hubs`mom), who sadly passed away almost 25 years ago next month...
Norma was an amazing baker - not in a decadent `petite four` or fancy Torte sort of way, but if you can imagine any type of comfort food baking it was in Norma`s repertoire! Think butter tarts, shortbread cookies, pound cake, puddings, and by far, the best banana loaf on this planet! ( and yes, I have the recipe... aaah sorry that one is TOP SECRET!)
I think of Norma often, imagining time I would have spent with her in her kitchen learning her baking secrets and quizzing her on childhood stories of her son (aka. Hubs)...what fun that would be! So in honour of and out of respect for my late mom-in-law Norma - ``Let the games begin...tonight!``
