Hello, I’m still here! And I’ve been baking up a storm, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted. It’s been an uncharacteristically busy May for me with a big ballroom competition to start out the month, and then a week later I went on a long awaited Alaskan cruise. But despite all the flurry of activities, I was still churning out treats from my oven in my spare moments. Now that I’m settling back into my usual daily routine, I’m facing down a huge backlog of baking posts, but I’m motivated to get the posts up because the baked goods have been pretty ridiculously delicious.
Usually when I come back from vacation, I bring back food stuff and baking inspiration from my trip. This time, my trip was less about food and more about the mindblowingly amazing Alaskan landscape, but I’m not complaining. My boots were too heavy for me to do a handstand, so I had to settle for doing the splits while hiking the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska .
