Finding Inspiration

My poor, neglected little blog!  I thought for sure  I'd be writing long before these last 13 months, but I haven't felt inspired at all.  It's not that I haven't been baking or trying out new recipes, but I nothing felt interesting or tasty enough to share.  Sometimes you need to discover a new source to give you a kick start and I found a British competition on PBS that I just love.

The Great British Baking Show is wonderful!  It's a competition, but the hosts are charming, not mean and the bakers treat each other with respect, not undermining each other.  It's aired in the UK already, but we're down to the last five bakers in the show as of this week.


Another unexpected source of inspiration came from a dear friend, who found a single calendar page and sent it to me.  It's designed by Caitlin McClain of Little Low - I love her designs so much I think I need to buy something!  It's a simple phrase, but something I'll be framing for my kitchen:

"Good things come to those who bake."

Just perfect and it summarizes WHY I bake.  Now, off to find some new recipes!
