Sometimes when you need a bit of comfort, sharing a dessert with a good friend, while you’re both tucked away in a bakery’s corner booth surrounded by the smell of baking cookies gives you that. Sometimes when you need a bit of comfort, you don’t want to pick only one dessert from the menu. You want two or three. Why can’t you have that?

Birthday cakes are personal and normally bought or baked with a special someone’s likes in mind. They are sometimes brought to a table with candles blazing like a fire (this happens as you grow older). Sometimes they have sparking candles that you can’t blow out, and the crowd thinks it’s funny, but you keep trying to extinguish the flames anyway.
I’ve had all sorts of birthday cakes through the years. My favorites are usually chocolate, but I wouldn’t turn down a birthday cake, especially if someone made it just for me.

The hills and sides of the road and backyards are covered in honeysuckle, either planted or wild. The air outside is full of the sweet scent, and I can’t help but open the windows and let it all into the house.

As the end of the school year approaches, kids become fidgety and excited for the freedom of summertime. Their eyes become brighter and their smiles wider. They skip up the sidewalks in Mystic Water and chatter about upcoming vacations and days spent exploring around Jordan Pond.
Anna bakes up the school children’s favorite candies in all sorts of sweets. One of the town’s favorites is her Peanut Butter Cookie Pie, rich and chocolately and decorated with favorite peanut butter candies.
