March better bring us a little spring!


I’m going through one of those “eat all the cookies” eating phases. You know, it’s the kind of eating habit where you eat all the cookies today so that tomorrow you will be healthy and eat right and regain that “summer beach body”. Except I’ve never quite had a “summer beach body” (I think I came as close as I’ll ever get one time in my twenties). Plus, when I eat all the cookies leftover from one blog post, I then begin baking for a new project or the next blog post, which results in “eat all the buttery brioche” because it’s really best eaten fresh and because tomorrow I will be healthier. Then comes “eat all the cake”…

So, we have a problem on our hands, people.

I suppose I could blame my upset in November and December, when I ate almost 2 kilos of chocolate (it might have been more than that because I went through most of my stash of chocolate chips too). It’s harder to shake that habit of stuffing your face because you feel like nothing is working. Even though I feel much, much better these days and I don’t have a reason to be stuffing my face like eating is my mission in life, bad habits die hard. Also, winter feels like it’s never going to end and like it’s been going on for ages because it started last November. It’s March, but it sure doesn’t feel like March yet, which makes me into somewhat of a cookie-eating hermit. It’s a wonder I’m still single! Who wouldn’t want a piece of that?

Oh well. Diet be damned and back to the point of this post: new month means new desktop calendar. This month, I’ve added an extra screen size because turns out that my own computer screen is neither a 1280×800 nor a 1024×768 and I was worried that maybe your screens might not fit those two sizes either. If there’s a screen size you’d like me to include in the future, let me know!

    I’ve been having the same problem… Whenever I make a batch of something remotely dessert-related, it disappears way too quickly. And I’m still eating through the giant amounts of chocolate that we received at Christmas. Somehow eating 8 chocolates back to back makes sense in the winter months.

      If I had access to Christmas chocolate, I’d be in serious trouble 😉

    omg i do this at least once a week. I will eat all the bad stuff in the house so that tomorrow, I will move forward with only good, healthy food for the rest of my life…

      The struggle is real! When I find the solution to this problem, I will let you know!

    I’ve been reading through your blogs… a bit like cake binging!! Such good insight here, and thoughtful ways of looking at life~ and baking! I love your blog and as someone with gluten intolerance, I’m completely in love with your lemon curd and raspberry sponge cake! Don’t worry about beach-bodies, they’re over-rated… good healthy bodies and good cake aren’t!

      Thanks for your comment! I really appreciate your spending the time on my site. That gluten-free cake you mention was a great one. I really need to spend more time working on more gluten-free recipes….
