Making Piece is the first autobiography selection for Cupcake Book Club. Most of the selections up to date have been fiction or chick lit. When I came across Beth’s book I knew it was the right selection. It’s the most emotional book so far.

A batch of springtime chocolate chip cookies that coincides with *hopefully* the last snow this year! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’re on the cusp of spring. I had a work function last night and as I was walking to the Stamford train station around 9pm I saw a whole heard of bunnies running around!

I’m glad that Daylight savings time has brought us more light in the evenings but trying to make myself go to bed at 10pm when it’s only 9pm was impossible! That or I drank too much caffeine but I was tossing and turning all night.

I made my first grown up birthday cake! It only took 30 years. Every year on my birthday I make what I feel like. Usually I go for something really crazy but this year I immediately gravitated towards this orange cake.
I had no idea until I moved back to the US that curd was more of a British thing. I took for granted all the different brands and flavors that would be stacked next to the jams and peanut butters. Curd is not something that you’ll find next to the Skippy in Stop & Shop.
