Unfortunately, there will be no TWD for me this week….washing my hands 20 times a day, never leaving my house, and staying away from large crowds is apparently exactly what it takes to catch this wonderful “Swine Flu” we’ve all been hearing about non-stop. Four days, five different kinds of medicines, one missed performance of Carmen, about a million cups of hot tea, 20,000 tissues and my entire collection of “chick flicks” later and I’m still nowhere close to being well. I was really hoping to be able to get in the kitchen and make Dorie’s Tiramisu Cake for this week’s TWD recipe, but apparently Mother Nature has other ideas. So instead of participating with the other happy bakers, posting gorgeous, mouth-watering pictures and talking about the deliciousness of cake – I’m sitting here in bed watching movie after movie with 20 pounds of gunk in my chest, forced to breathe through my mouth, and my head feeling like it’s about to explode. Good times. Here’s hoping I’ll at least be well in time for the final performance of Carmen on Friday and Mother’s Day…..cross your fingers!



  1. Oh no! Take care of yourself and follow your doctor’s instructions. I hope you feel better soon!
