This is my favourite time of year. Peonies are in season! The shops are lit up with twinkle lights. The days are long and the nights are balmy. The weekends are filled with festivities. Lazy days are spent by the beach, drinking in the sunshine. I would prefer to spend as much time away from the hot oven on these glorious summer days, but there is something about the festive season that brings out the Martha Stewart in me. The other night I made chocolate biscotti. The small quiet apartment smelled delicious for hours. Husband came home to the smell of home-baked yumminess, which brought an instant smile to his face. So, there will be a lot more baking this season, for family, for friends, for husband...and may be just for me!
