We are just back from a fantastic holiday – almost three weeks in York, Paris, and London. It has been great fun exploring places we've never been and discovering new things in places we already knew and loved.
When I was growing up, I knew I was lucky to have a mom who was, in addition to being a fine cook, a terrific baker. Cakes, cupcakes, pies, cobbles, cookies, squares, bread, biscuits - all seemed to flow effortlessly from her oven. Much later, I learned there is no such thing as effortless baking... or is there?
