Oh So Sweet

I made a new friend last weekend.  As we laughed and joked, chatted and shared, I had a sense of coming home.  Our personalities meld together yet she has so many of the qualities that I wish I had.  She is truly one of the cleverest people I know.  Her wit and humor and realistic view on life create a magical, draw-you-in energy.

Plus, she bakes.

I have people like this scattered around the country.  Friends who are those kindred spirits where you feel like you have always known one another but have just been separated for a time.  I wish I could gather them all within arm’s reach.  I wish I could walk to each of their homes whenever I felt like it.  I wish I could sit at their kitchen counters and catch up on the day instead of reviewing the year.

Would you like to meet my new friend?  I invite you to take a moment to get to know Brooke McLay – mother, housewife and baker extraordinaire.  But that’s not all.  She is a writer as well.  She can spin a story and capture a moment with her lyrical turn-of -phrase.  She told me that she wakes up in the morning and decides what she is going to bake and then creates it.  She doesn’t use a recipe – she makes them up.  To me, that is the ultimate in creativity.  Yes, her blog is about baking from scratch yet it is so much more than that.  Give yourself a sweet treat and spend a few moments with Brooke, my new friend and author of the Cheeky Kitchen.

Enjoy yourself and save a bite for me.
