This cake is so good that even the non-living want it ...
My colleague Corey gave a wonderful talk at school about the idea of balance as the key to success. It's a message we all need to hear as we over-engage in some aspect of our lives. For me, this is work.
Corey counseled that we need a third piece to round off our work and family, a piece that we look forward to, rejuvenates us, and makes us better at work and family. For him, it's coaching, and during the summers, fishing.
For me, it's cooking and writing about food.
Corey reminded me that in the craziness that has characterized my life in the last five months, I have given up what makes me very happy. He reminded me that I need to make time for my passion.
So I am back to blogging.
A few days ago, I saw a pumpkin cake at How to: Simplify. I love the look and feel of this blog, as well as the name.
As the cake baked, it filled the kitchen with the smells of pumpkin and cinnamon -- the smell of fall.
I love the fall, don't you?
The cake was absolutely moist and delicious. These would be great as cupcakes too.
And the good news about my passion is that nourishes my family and work life, both figuratively and literally. Pretty good, right?
