I am one of those people who pretty much insist that dessert is homemade. I will spend days laboring over a birthday cake and obsess for weeks over my holiday baking plans. I kind of love it. But then, there are those days and weeks where life totally kicks you in the butt and sometimes I need to take a step back and realize that the world won’t implode if I can’t make that pie from scratch. In fact, not a soul will actually care. Sometimes it is just important to spend that kitchen time with the people you love, soaking up the sunshine. Sometimes it’s worth $8.14 to just go and buy the pie (or cookies, or cake).
