Good evening, friends and neighbors!
Ostensibly, this is a baking and food blog. I am, after all, a baker and culinary professional. I am used to, and in fact EXPECT to, get a lot of questions.
Most of them, however, are about fitness and weight loss- particularly mine.
"How do you keep so slim while working in a bakery? I'd be as big as a house!" "How can you stand to be around all that butter and sugar?"
Or, worst of all,
"What diet are you on/pill are you taking to keep so trim?!"
