Between you and me, almost nothing makes me as happy as a really good meal.

Whenever a mouth-watering recipe crosses my path, I make a mess in the kitchen and hope

that it will result in pleasure . . . happiness . . . joy.

BAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE

Apple tart - I've made it a few times now, and it's always a hit.

Procrastibaking:

When you have a million things to do but ignore everything and bake.

Apricot tart with almonds - a match made in heaven.

When stressed and in doubt, cupcake it out.

Miss Törtchen in Schwerin, Germany, is a true happy place.
