Things That Make Me Happy

Tomato and basil bruschetta for a light summer dinner. Seriously, there's nothing better than those flavors, when the tomatoes are perfectly ripe and the basil comes from the backyard. Toss with some finely minced shallot and garlic, and a drizzle of olive oil for a true taste of the season.

My new job as the Assistant Culinary Specialist at Wilton. I love that I love going to work - I'm a new person. More on the job later, after I figure out the company's social media policies.

Receiving emails like this:

Hey Beth,

Seeing your Gchat status lit up reminded me that I was going to send you an email and let you know that Jenny's Mom saved the top of our wedding cake (tradition and all) and we had it the other week b/c it was our anniversary, annnnnddd....it was GREAT! I never would have thought year-old cake would be any good, but yours was!

Thanks again :)

Hope you are having fun in Chicago. We'll be back in early August, perhaps I'll see you at the Phish show?!

Take care,
Evan

Wow, what a job! Congrats! I also love simple bruschetta on the patio during those hot days
