Happy Friday!
As much as I want to say the word "happy" I am not with all these winter storms that keep hitting the Cape.
Two days ago was the first day of spring and right after that we had yet another snow storm.
This one dumping six inches of snow.  Which by the way, six inches of snow to us now is a mere couple of inches. I don't like getting used to it that way.
It's not so much the snow that bothers me, it's the lack of sun that is killing my moods.
We seem to be on this pattern of five days of cloudy, dark or snow weather, and maybe one and half days of sun.
I miss the sun, I miss the natural Vit D she gives me too.

provincetown. the row of cottages on route 6a just before entering p-town. ghostly looking, but in two months they will all be filled with life.
my latest obsession, the chipotle tabasco sauce has just the right amount of smoke added to it, and has just the right amount of heat.
you must try your avocado toast this way.
or try this way: on an egg sandwich.
I was asked to try Bonnieville's Power Cookie.  Pretty darn good for a vegan, gluten free and dairy free cookie! With no refined sugar too!
Those kind of cookies are hard to make AND hard to make tasty.  If I had to change one thing?
It needs more chocolate flavor.
The strawberries at Whole Foods have been simply stunning.
They always have the best selection of produce.
It's here!  I was sent a copy of Gesine latest cookbook!
I'm thrilled to pieces.  Have you seen the latest recipes?
Bake It like you Mean It is about showcasing cakes from the inside out,   Each chapter is devoted to a technique of making different types of cake beginning with the easiest recipe and moving to the more technically difficult as the chapter progresses.  When the cakes are cut they reveal intricate layers of patterns and designs.  One recipe you can have right now: Pyramid Cake is on her website.
Not only that, but recipes like creamsicle cheesecake, creamsicle meringue, truffle caramel fig cake, pumpkin mousse cruller tart, meyer lemon and blackberry zebra cheesecake....
