Best of Summer 2021

This summer has been a doozy! There was the fleeting Hot Vax Summer (Pfizer over here!), a couple of trips to see my family, planning our annual trip to Maine, and a whole lot of baking. People are celebrating again, which means I’ve been busy making layer cakes—that makes me really happy.

I will also say that I am worn out. I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about burnout these days, and while I haven’t said it explicitly up to now, here goes: I’m a little burnt out. I’ve kept up my usual workload, but I am tired, y’all! So today, instead of posting something new, I’m going to give myself the day off. But also? I’m going to list off some of my favorite things I made this summer. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to try one or two before everything is all apples and pumpkins all the time.

So, yes, a day off for ol’ E2. Next week though, I’m going to knock your socks off with a new waffle recipe. Get ready.
