Baked Expectations


In the circle of life there are times when parents need little breaks from their children and then the loop reverses and the teenagers would just as soon not  connect with their parents.  We are entering the most wonderful portion of the ring right now-we crave being with our kids and apparently the feeling is mutual.

One evening D was going to get caught up on our banking and I was settling in to watch one of “my” dance shows, when the phone rang.  It was Daughter #2 calling to ask us to meet she and her fella for dessert.  OMGoodness-even in the pouring rain, we were there in less than seven minutes!

Baked Expectations has been around since my husband and I were courting and is still serving up consistently sumptuous tortes, cheesecakes and pies.  We nestled in for from scratch hot chocolate and flavoured milks.  D&I decided upon one item to share but the kids were not so successful in spite of their determination to do so.

So Crazy Chocolate Cake, Caramel Pecan Cheesecake and Tia Maria Torte were sampled.  All were distinct from each other and the tastes of fine ingredients were apparent.

Demographically, D&I we were the minority in that bustling little place.  We didn’t care.  Our glow extended to the paying of the cheque -hey we raised a very clever child.  Love you Boo.

    I am convinced that I could survive solely on Pavlova from Baked for the rest of my life. The lemony, fruity goodness is not usually what I’m looking for in a dessert (I generally go straight for the chocolate every time), but somehow this light and airy cake won my affections!

    Thanks for the great post Kath!

    Hey D-I miss you so much. Maybe a dim sum date is in order. Never tried Baked’s Pavlova because Jen and her Mom make one to die for!
