I think its one of my moms favorite stories. It involves me, a cookie and coffee – three things that Im sure youd never put together.You can laugh now.

April is lucky I love her. Really lucky.This morning, I come in the bakery tired and frustrated and she had the nerve – the NERVE – to not only poke fun at me but to do it with her own cupcake creation.

I am a baker.I am not a fashionista. I am not a police officer. And by no means am I a ninja. I can bake cookies, cupcakes, pies.

I cant tell you about all the cupcakes Ive made. Theres been thousands – tens of thousands, probably – that have come from my heart and hard work. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been bad.

People like to ooh and ah over cake balls – theyre so good and so cute and oh so versatile.But heres the thing about cake balls: They are a pain in the you-know-what to make.

Harrison is a good looking guy. He might even be movie star good looking. But as weve all learned, looks will only get you so far.Especially with me.I like a guy who is kind. Funny.

Some girls buy a new dress for a date. Others will get new shoes or a hair cut or a mani-pedi or all of the above.However, Im not one of those girls. Shocking, I know.

Have you ever seen the movie Waitress? You know the one – Keri Russell (lets be honest and just call her Felicity) works in a pie shop and is a pie genius.

I have never lived a day that I didnt wake up wanting to bake.Until today.Saying that my stomach hurts after my run-in with the skateboarders would be an understatement.

I did something ridiculous. I mean, crazy ridiculous. And were not talking about whipping up a batch of savory cupcakes or bacon nougat-filled cookies. Oh, no. Those things have the potential of being ridiculously good.

You ever have one of those days when you wake up at 3 a.m.? I mean, like, wake up with your eyes wide and your engines rarin to go. That was me today.

It all started with Scooby Snacks. Our unrelenting love of Scooby Snacks.Every Friday, after school, April and I would go to Munchies – when it was actually called Munchies – to split some Scooby Snacks and an Unwrap.

I was 5-years-old, standing on a white wooden step stool in my grandmas kitchen. We were baking cookies – chocolate chip cookies. She creamed the butter and sugar in an old, old stand mixer.

Its funny how you can spend your entire day baking and come home and bake some more. But thats what I did last night.

I try really hard not to judge people. If studying in Paris taught me anything, it was that.
