Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 6

Getting to the home stretch! Today's cake was a present from my friend, Jane. Thanks for taking the pressure off with the cake-finding mission today, Jane! Actually, I should have said today's cakes, because Jane gifted me with a Cake Trifecta! Lemon, Chocolate Bomb, and Fruit Tart (because fruit is healthy!). Oh, and the cakes came with … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 6

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 4

Wow, Day 4 already! It is going by TOO FAST. Today's cake is from Spiller Farm in Wells, and it's a Boston Cream Pie. I grew up eating these cakes, or pies, as they are officially called. I know not why. There is no pie crust. There is no (traditional) pie filling. What there is is … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 4

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 3

Today, I got a smaller cake, just enough for me. 😀 Was thinking of strawberries, and thinking of healthy eating, and how to blend this with cake. And look what I found! It tasted as good as it looks. This cake little cake ROCKS! And good news: it comes in a bigger size. This cake … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 3

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 2

Day 2, people!! Today's cake is brought to you courtesy of my daughter, who gifted it to me, by way of the Wells IGA.

Not as good as … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 2

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 5

Day 5! Today's cake had to be great to make up for yesterday's fail. I went to Mike's Clamshack Fish Market. My friend Barney said, "It's that time again already?!" I bought cakes here for last year's cakewalk too. Anyway, I got the Lemon Blueberry Cake with Lemon Buttercream made by Something Different. This is … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 5

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 1

Last year I had a blast doing a Birthday Week CakeWalk. I had a different cake for every day leading up to my birthday.  Seven cakes in seven days! Yay! Never heard of this? That's because I made this up (hmm, maybe I should trademark that term...). I had a lot of fun. I also … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 1

A friend of Kevin

I was lucky enough to be invited to be on Kevin Willett's TV program, Business as Usual. I met Kevin on Facebook when I responded to a video he shared. I started following his page because the topics he was discussing resonated with me. One day, he mentioned that he had a TV show, and … Continue reading A friend of Kevin

Aha!

I was at the gym on the bike for the first time in two weeks (don't judge me). I was hoping to be motivated to pedal a little longer through the time-honored hack of distraction. I was looking forward to listening to a Women Taking the Lead podcast, Number 201 with Dana Malstaff, and now … Continue reading Aha!

Mary Ann and me

Mary Ann Esposito and I go way back. Okay, sort of. I met her in real life at a Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School event in 2008. (Also, once I saw her at the Market Basket, but I didn't actually talk to her. Does that count?) I really met her for the first time in my … Continue reading Mary Ann and me
