luckily i'm sipping a pb smoothie, the ideal accompiament for reading my fav blog. i think that putting the kabocha squash into the confines of your pastry dough was savory genius and brunch fanatics everywhere should rejoice. i've been anxiously awaiting a new post all week and am so happy it has arrived.
thank youuuuu for all you bake and do.

Are you KIDDING me with that banana bread peanut butter sandwich? That looks incredible & I've just learned that today is peanut butter lover's day.

Btw, where'd you get the rad M&M's? Mine from Economy Candy seem washed out in color compared to your vibrant ones.
