It has been a long time since my last post. The break I was taking from my old blog turned into an almost two-year hiatus. If you recall the amount of poaching I was doing towards the end, the break came at a good time. And yet, despite my fingers itching to blog, I don't feel much like returning to the old one and picking up that thread. But the good thing about the blogs (and books. . . but not so much baked goods, unfortunately) is that they tend to stick around if one ever wants to return.
So I'll let my old blog remain on the shelf for now and try something new . . . something lighter, less personal on some levels, but more introspective on others. This blog will attempt to combine my lifelong love of books with my newly discovered delight in baking (if you know me, yes, I'm as surprised as you are!). Admittedly, the two have little in common besides baking books, book-shaped cakes. . . and the odd person with a passion for both. Still, why not?
So here goes. . .
