Many of you have been waiting (im)patiently for the end of my hiatus, wondering where I've been and when you'll get your treats again. Many of you do know what has been going on in my world, and I thank you all for your support.
I've spent the better part of the past year caring for my mother who suddenly fell seriously ill, and at the same time we've uprooted and moved. We've finally bought our dream farm and have been happily renovating our new home in the Peterborough area. If you can believe it, we have our own private valley!
Despite all of this distracting beauty and new lifestyle, I've been itching to get back into the pastry kitchen, and have been revisiting old favourites, tinkering, and working on new recipes. I plan to continue to do so for the next little while, until the house and other things in my life settle down a bit. I hope to be able to start working on plans to restart The Queen of Tarts before the year is up. Don't despair: the treats are on their way, so stay tuned!
