Hello everyone! How was Christmas? Ours was lovely, relatively stress free and wonderful. Did I mention we had a good Christmas? Oh, well that's good because we did :)
I (obviously) didn't post over our vacation and I had a lot of time to think about this here little bloggity blog. I decided that I love it. If I only had 2 people in the entire world reading it, I would still love it. I love it just the way it is. But, recently, I have had a couple people mention to me that they wish I would make more savory dishes and not so many sweets. I really had to think about this. I can cook, we eat something homemade almost every night and it is almost always very good.
But baking is my hobby, it's what I do for fun, it's what I do for relaxation. I started this blog as a way to have a creative outlet. Sharing my baking with you was what I chose to do. That's not to say that I won't ever post a savory recipe, because I certainly will be.
To me, baked goods are comfort. I want everyone who come to visit my blog be comfortable, like they are a guest in my own home. If you are a guest in my house, chances are that you are going to be offered a cookie, a piece of cake or a cinnamon roll. That's what I try to do here. I want to offer you the same comfort that I offer our guests and loved ones.
So, while I understand that goodies all the time are not good for you and that sometimes you just want something cheesy or spicy, for the most part this blog will continue to be just what it always has been: A look into my crazy life, with my crazy kids, in our crazy home with a few good recipes thrown in for good measure.
Going into the new year this is what I have to offer you: A good story, a laugh or two and a good recipe.
Because let's face it, sometimes you just need a cookie.
