the good, the bad, and the ugly about the writing life

People You Love

King Arthur Flour Orange Cranberry scones

It’s a blustery day in Chicago-land. Snow is mixing with rain, and I’m reminded of the winter to come.

My advice for days (or weeks) such as this is to BAKE something for someone you love–that includes you, too.

I cheated and went for a cranberry orange scone mix from King Arthur Flour, but it’s oh-so-yummy! They also make gluten-free goodness. And I can personally characterize their “jammy bits” as WONDERFUL. It’s the good stuff in a hurry.

So brew a pot of tea (or grab a tea bag for a cuppa–I won’t judge) and enjoy some quiet reflection with something to eat that you baked yourself.

Trust me, it eases the pain.
