The best thing that has ever happened to civilization: the bed. Every night, once my kids are bathed and in their own beds, I feel a calm sense of satisfaction overtake me that another day has passed and that I can finally be reunited with my true love. Yes, my feelings for my bed are that strong.

Whether it’s eating a truffle while I stare out at a snowy landscape, reading under a fuzzy blanket, or cuddling with any child of mine who is willing to let me squeeze them for a few minutes, it’s super important to relish the hibernating aspect of winter.

Every now and then, I also like to bake a summery dessert to raise the brightness in the kitchen. Nothing is more summery to me than citrus, especially anything yellow. So these Meyer lemon pie bars are perfect for cheering up the landscape!
