She’s Alive!

August 19, 2021

I’m giving you this fabulous Lemon Mascarpone Tart recipe because once you taste it, you’ll forget that I’ve abandoned you for two months. Here’s my excuse list: I started a full-time job. I moved twice. I unpacked like a madwoman for 20 days so my apartment would feel like home to my visiting daughter. We attended family gatherings.

A Lemon Ricotta Poundcake Mouthgasm

If I ever mention that I think it will be fun to bake four different kinds of cookies then bring them in for morning radio shows to test, someone please slap me, and lock me in my room, OK? I was up at 3 a.m. Thursday morning, baking…
