Book Journal: Recipes DONE!, Writing not done

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)
Sometime last weekend I made my seventy-fifth recipe. I don’t really remember how or when, but according to my spreadsheet, all of them are now checked off. I had a whole new kind of sugar-crash when it was over; like the end of the semester when you just fall apart from all those all-nighters and term papers.

Now I’m holed-up at a friend’s house (you’ve read about the renovation, right?), trying to get as much of the writing done as possible. Confessing to my editor that I didn’t expect to have the entire manuscript done by my September 1st deadline was a relief. Although, with five weeks to go before my due date, I’m not only getting more nervous, but more challenged physically. Even sitting in the most comfortable of chairs proves difficult if the baby has decided to stretch its little legs in a particular way.

The photos above are the last few desserts I did in that foggy home stretch. From left to right: Strawberry Custard Tart, Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake, Tropical Custard Tart.
