Good morning

#strawberry mousse #tart.

Hello there. I've decided to try to resurrect my blog from the dead, now that I have a tiny bit more free time. So to that end, it's strawberry season here in beautiful British Columbia, and I went a bit crazy last week and bought a full flat.* Which I then carried 1.9 km home in my arms, while fending off marauding crows and seagulls. Worth it, though! After wallowing around in piles of strawberries, I decided to make a tart. There she be, in all her moussey, jammy glory.

Okay well, time to go layer a cake! If there's enough light when it's done, I'll document it on film--this one's a chocolate toffee crunch cake. Mmmm, toffee. And then to work. So let's see if I remember to come back and post some more. I actually have lots to say, mostly things about how my life's changed since I gave up the glamorous life of a compliance officer for the glamorous life of a baker...

*Don't worry Mr. Strawberry man, I will bring the flat back next week. Promise.
