Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 1

Posted on May 4, 2013

So while I don’t usually have multiple recipes to share each week, I do miss blogging more often like I did before I launched Keep It Sweet Desserts.  I thought it might be fun to add a weekly post where I give a little snapshot of what is going on over here and share some fun links and recipes I have found on other sites.

On life: Things around here are busy!  Orders have been coming in more heavily than I expected for this time of year so that is definitely a good thing.  I’ve been balancing my increased kitchen time with trying to be more social now that the weather makes me want to have a life again.  I got to see my friend Samara twice in one week which was pretty much a miracle for me… with a special thank you to her friend who asked if I was pregnant.  I realize that the question was a result of the Diet Coke I was drinking but whew, that was a self-esteem booster.  Sidenote: the answer is NO.

Other things happening around here- I’m considering teaching a baking class, if only I could decide what I’d like to talk about first!  I’ll keep you updated in case anyone in the NY/NJ area is interested in coming!

Beyond that, I’m going to make an effort this time around to get some more hands on board for the fall/winter.  I think that means I need to start looking for interns or assistant bakers now.  Know of anyone who wants some baking or entrepreneurial experience?  Send them my way!
