It’s a Perfect Day



Gray clouds, wet pavement outside; I sit on the couch with my usually chaotic and playful cat at rest, snoring away behind me. His tiny breath, being drawn in heavily with a whistle then gently exhaled out; he drapes across the back of the couch, like a big cat in a tree, one white paw touching my shoulder. Another beloved, a soft and aged, wise old fellow who has mastered sleep, is curled up in a nook of the cat tree that sits in the corner of this peaceful scene. His breath is rhythmic, a somnifacient meditation. I feel a deep, maternal tug at my heart, when I hear these sounds. Adding to my comforts, my late-morning breakfast still fills the house with the sweet smell of toasted coconut pancakes, as I sip chai and type away, an armchair-philosopher and -activist on this drizzly day, posting lengthy comments and responses across my friends’ Facebook pages.
I am content.

Patty Cake, Patty Cake, Baker’s Man…


It all started with watching a bit of the Food Network this morning and seeing Anne Burrell whip up some Meyer Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Macerated Strawberry Coulis. From there, I went digging through food blogs and found a version I thought sounded more along my “tastes”: Berry Myer Lemon Pancakes on Joy’s site, Joy the Baker. Yummy stuff! Food can be an inspiration and be inspired.

And, how about this?

Blackberry & Lime Miniature Tarts with Cardamom Ice Cream
from Golubka blogspot.


Are you hungry yet?
I know I am.

I ended up drooling over a picture of Chai Tea Spice Cake; a recipe found on Vera’s Baking Obsession blog. The cake is from Carol Bloom’s The Essential Baker. That is a definite “must bake” item.
I LOVE chai!

Spoonful of Sugar has a delectable looking Blueberry Struesel Bread

Coffee with that, anyone?

…and, since the weather has turned warmer, how about some of these: Creamy Lemon Popsicles from Gimme Some Oven?


Bringing us back to lemons.


See? There is a method to my madness.
