I’ve been keeping busy this summer, working on all kinds of awesome projects. Per usual, there’s been a lot of baking, some great writing gigs, the occasional wedding cake (I played the dual role of bridesmaid and baker in the photo above – and my fantastic and patient husband supported as sous chef), and lots of studying for the Certified Exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers. I’ve enjoyed the consistency of my Pie of the Week column over at Serious Eats. After all, pie is the official dessert of summer. Check ‘em out!
