Last week was one of those weeks when everything just aligned. I organized my room, made a pile of clothing to donate, and did a little DIY project to spruce things up. I also finally got Tartine’s bread book, a dutch oven and a kitchen scale, and with those implements, succeeded in making amazing sourdough bread- complete with a crispy crust, open crumb, and chewy, custard-y texture. But perhaps the best part of last week was being featured on Food & Wine’s Instagram account with my Valentine’s Day Donuts and then on HuffPost Taste’s Instagram with my Lemon Meringue Pie and Everyday Chocolate Cake! I’m still a little shocked (and beyond elated!), but it just shows me that hard work pays off, something I’ll definitely remember in the future.
Here’s to seeing the fruits of our labor! And here’s to the things I’m loving right now.
