How June Cleaver of me.

When Kyle and I were first married, I baked all the time. Specifically, I baked bread. When we moved into our house, I was so excited that I had such a big kitchen and knew it would get lots of use. Ironically enough, I haven't baked nearly as much since we moved in (and we lived here more than 2 years before Jack was born).

When Kyle and I were shopping on my birthday, I wondered into Williams Sonoma while he was in the bathroom. Almost immediately, I saw a cookbook stand that I loved.


Of course, I don't have money to be spending on things I don't need . . . things like cookbook stands . . . so I moved on. Kyle got back from the bathroom and asked if I was going to spend my gift certificate. My what? And I remembered the Pottery Barn gift certificate I received as a gift for coordinating a wedding in June. Which was perfect.

So, I bought it. I'm pretty sure Kyle thinks it's a magic cookbook stand because since that purchase, I've made cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip bread and I'm working on a batch of pita bread.


If nothing else, it adds to the lends itself to the appearance that I'm domestic, right?

I have it in my head that I want to make whole wheat bread with flax sunflower seeds.

Haven't done it yet though.

Cool retro toaster.

All you have to do is keep up the appearance.

That's what I keep telling myself.
