Starving Art



"I'm so hungry and the only thing in this purse is paper stuffing!"

Poor thing. She looks like she's starving (or suffering from cramps).

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been exhausted and ill (I can't bring myself to say "under the weather" we're all under it). I've been to the doc and she ran tests. I know what it is, and I am ashamed to say that I'm not taking such good care of myself, but I'm trying. It's not easy to eat right when you have no appetite. So, I've been relying on the odd strong craving for something to get myself to eat. It's almost like I've got a picky toddler to feed! As fleeting as these cravings are, after only a couple of bites, I'm turned off by what I wanted only moments before. Even when it comes to tasting stuff at work, I can't possibly imagine putting stuff I once ate pretty frequently in my mouth. But how can you create desserts without testing them on your palate? I truly am a starving artist! LOL.

Other than coming up with stuff at work, I've not been baking much. I do have three kinds of cookie dough in the freezer though: chocolate cookies that are crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy inside, peanut butter, and oatmeal with dried tart cherries. Perhaps one of these mornings I'll get up early and bake some to take in to work.
