Every year for his birthday I tell Alex that I’ll make him whatever he wants. It’s hard since his birthday is so close to Christmas and we know there is a huge eating bonanza a few days away. I told him whatever he can dream up I’ll do my best to make it dairy free for him.

It’s nice to look back on the year and reflect. It’s been a huge year for me too. After 11 years living in the UK I moved 3,500 miles away to Connecticut. It’s nice to look at what’s been accomplished and how far I’ve come but really the year is over and it’s time to move forward!

Christmas at Carrington’s is the latest book for Cupcake Book Club. I loved the first book so I could not wait for the second book. The first book Cupcakes at Carrington’s was the book club selection earlier in the year. What’s been going on in Mulberry on Sea lately?

I’ve always had a terrible relationship with pie dough. We should see other people but I keep coming back to it over and over again with miserable results. One day I’ll learn my lesson or we’ll kiss and make up for real. I have no problems with cookie crumb crusts but getting the right thickness for pie dough and artfully crimping the crusts pretty much always ends in tears.

You may have seen the festive holiday milks nestled next to the different holiday nogs this year. I didn’t get a chance to taste them (because I already over dosed on eggnog before Thanksgiving)but I did read that they have corn syrup AND 41g of sugar per serving. I thought I could make a tastier version of the Target Snickerdoodle milk at home with a little less sugar than that.
