Who feels the most rewarded here I ask you? The giver? Or the receiver?
I'm having fun sending my pal Bundt cake pans this year, and she is sending me pictures of the results! I of course am drooling over them with coffee in hand, and loving the fact that they are non caloric via cyberspace! I would surely trade a few calories for a bite though. GRUNT.
Ahhh Blima the baker... I miss my dear friend. We see each other once or twice a year ( if lucky) as she resides in Montreal. I'm trying to get her to SnowBird to Pismo soon. We take roadtrips together and make some of the best memories I have. In between these trips we cyber chat, email, and send each other fun things via snail mail. I count myself lucky to have such a love.
You can (and should) check out her website (on the right column) with many of her favorite recipes posted. She loves to cook, and is nothing short of professional, albeit, its generally for friends and family.
She feeds her family, and she feels full.
