cream puffs with caramelized apples

Today is a great day.

Today is a great day for various reasons.

Today is a great day because I went to work and I enjoyed it. It’s been quite peaceful and drama-free around there lately and that makes my soul calm and happy. While being in my pastry kitchen I made flour-less chocolate cake and it tasted wonderful. I also made hazelnut financiers and a few other treats that made me feel sweet inside. So yes, today was a great day at work.

Today is also a great day because I will be eating dinner with a good friend of mine. She and I usually laugh, sip on wine, and share a few stories about our week. Okay, okay…we also gossip a bit, but we always keep it very light and innocent.

Today is also a great day because the official count down before Mark gets home has begun. He will be home soon. So soon. It’s been 5 weeks since he left and I can’t wait for his return. This tour has been kind of rough on me.

And finally, today is a great day because I have the ultimate pleasure of guest-posting at Hip Foodie Mom, an outstanding food blog operated by my dear food blogger buddy, Alice Choi.

Did I mention that today I also got to munch on these Cream Puffs with Caramelized Apples? Well, I did. My day just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?
