Words I Won’t Forget

November 13, 2008


“The key to not making a mess when you bake is to put each ingredient away as you use it.”


I have no idea why these words stuck in my head, but they did. The one thing I can always remember baking with my grandma was chocolate chip cookies. They were on the agenda every time I came over. It was during one of these baking sessions that she told me the above tip. I put it into practice each time I bake and she was right. I’m left with a much smaller mess at the end and as a result I think of her.

Friends, I tell you these words and this story because my grandmother passed away yesterday. While it is a sad day and there will be more to come I have no doubt that she is in a heavenly paradise with the Lord.

So I’ll be taking a break from the blogging world for a few days as I travel to the States. Don’t go too far, I should be back late next week with regular posts. See you then.

God Bless!
