I have never been a great baker. Cookies, cakes, breads, and muffins are some of my guiltiest pleasures. Yet, when it comes to making them at home, I am always nervous that something is going to go wrong. Today, I decided to try to tackle the Boston Creme Pie. A cake named for my adopted hometown seems like just the thing I should master for guests and visitors. When it came to the recipe Martha Stewart seemed like the most obvious choice. Here is the link to the delicious cake that I spent most of the day trying to make. The step for the pudding filling was a tricky spot. Everything else seems to have come out perfectly. Unfortunately, when I shimmered the milk, I turned away for a few moments and turned back to find that the milk was boiling over the saucepan. This yielded a pudding that was the consistency of a stiff board. Undeterred by this mini kitchen disaster, I made a second attempt which was much more successful. I am quite proud of this pie that now sits comfortably in the refrigerator awaiting tonight’s little dinner party.

What has happened here in four years? Well, you can check out the blog but for a speed-up review: two kids, two houses, a few cars, the same career but lots of new knowledge from practice and failure, some adventures to distant places, some fantastic stay-cations, and a bit of dabbling in new hobbies. As my Instagram handle notes: Coffee is my spirit animal. Mama covered in boys. Wife covered in kisses. Teacher covered under grading. Potter in the making. That sums it up for the most part! I hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon and often and share yourself too here in the comments. View all posts by Melissa
