For the first six months after we moved to Utah, I awarded myself the job title of confectionista. Aside from experimenting in the kitchen and blogging about my adventures, it was so fun searching out new weekend boutiques to attend, reviewing restaurants, and exploring the vast blogging world that runs rampant in Utah. For those six months, no other commitments consumed my time until… JetBlue came into my purview.
Well that’s not all. You know that old nursery rhyme… first came love, then came marriage, then came the babies (count them… two!) in a baby carriage?
They came too.
On top of diaper duty, I head back to work in 23 days. I never, ever, ever thought I would say that I miss my job. Honestly, I never thought I’d have a job that I’d miss, but I love working for JetBlue on the Real Time Recovery/Social Media team tweeting for JetBlue about turtles, fare specials, customer questions, and anything JetBlue related in 140 characters or less, of course.
That also means, you guessed it, Fahreneheit 350° is on twitter as well. Follow me for breaking baking news, updates on JetBlue, thumbsucking, and a few of my own quips and opinions.
Yes friends, my full time confectionista days are behind me! And, what could be better (see above picture with proud Daddy)? Cue cliche music with appropriate bearing testimony of how blessed I am. On top of diaper duty, and working part time, I’m still dedicated to finding time for my passion. Life is about making it work, so, in true twitter fashion this recipe is all about simplicity.
And what’s best, is this recipe is a twist on the original, and is nut free! That way you can share this with everyone, including your loved ones who are allergic.
