There are now 3 cakes sitting on my kitchen counter

Is compulsive baking dangerous? I know compulsive eating is bad and that could be a problem with all the baking sitting around here, but so far it's just the baking. Wednesday I baked a huge chocolate zucchini cake. Today I have already baked a lemon loaf and a chocolate banana cake. And I am really tempted to call my friend G to get her chocolate chip cookie recipe (and those I really, really want to eat). I guess I bake to deal with stress as well as when I feel like nesting. Well I guess it's better than curling up in my bed and crying non-stop.

Only 24 more hours until the MIL arrives.

Sending you strength for your visit with your MIL. I am now officially hungry and want to try a chocolate zuchini cake. Yum.

If you'd like to get the chocolate banana cake off of your hands you could ship it to me!! Baking is a good distraction, just don't eat it all and you're fine!

Big Love, Big Acceptance - or so I say said...

Mmmmm... I've been thinking about baking all day - but haven't gotten off the couch to do so. Good for you! I hope you enjoy some of the delisciousness.

There must be some nesting bug blowing in the air. Before Chloe's death almost 2 months ago I was always obsissive about having a clean house (even with a 18 month old). I cleaned the floors literally every night before going to bed for well over a month before I went into labour. I have barley cleaned since she died...until today...during my daughter's nap I when I usually do nothing, today I spent the entire 3 hours cleaning.

Good luck with you MIL.

Baking - yummy!

Maybe all those goodies will help you get through MIL's visit.

I used to love to cook and bake - and I've barely done any of that in the last few years. I should get back into it.
