Our bakehouse is sunny, more than 70 years old, with creaky floors, a pair of birds who occasionally live in the flue behind the wall, cheap spices, good rum and a warm oven most every day.

Things I love (besides my two toddlers and sexy husband) — brown butter, my 98 cent spatula and peanut butter on a slim spoon right from the jar.

I also love baking stuff for other people…especially when they enjoy eating it.

Things I don’t love — late fees, Las Vegas and zombies.
