There’s been baking and shopping and stressing and back aches and planning and writing and all these things have kept me from blogging and that’s fairly lame.
I’m not kidding about all the baking though. Holy bajez! I’ve made banana nut bread that was better than nom-worthy.
And then I went over to Pinch My Salt and saw this HOLY CRAP AMAZING recipe for Lemon Poppyseed Zucchini Bread and messed my drawers a little. I immediately bought poppyseeds and left a perfectly happy happy hour and spent Friday night baking away.
It. Was. So. Worth. It.
This was the most amazingly moist, perfect bread in the whole world. Two loaves were not enough.
I didn’t take a photo, but I will next time. Because there most certainly will be a next time.
In the meantime, here’s a photo of me and Tony.
Bourdain’s talk and Q&A at the Paramount was fabulous. I waited damn near the end of the line to get my book signed and lucky for me, he waited patiently for every single one of us. Does this mean all is forgiven for letting the world know about my own private Idaho? Maybe.
