New Year's diets are boing.

I page through the new cookbooks (both volumes of BAKE are now in my library) and pine to be in the kitchen baking and making a mess. But the family is descending on me this coming weekend, and a big ALL-family dinner on Sunday, and I will spend this Friday baking and cooking to get ready! Get ready, set BAKE!!!
