Summer always began with a road trip from Florida to Vermont. My parents would stuff the car like Mary Poppins purse, and we would stop at traditional historical sites like Williamsburg and less traditional historical sites like our favorite diner along 93 north.
Since I started Lycette and began working from home I have gained weight. And no, I’m not whining about 5 lbs or even 10 lbs, I am talking closer to 20 lbs! You may ponder how that could have happened without me noticing at the 10 or maybe 15 lb mark? Well combine a natural love of food, a penchant for emotional eating, and a personal style that mirrors Mrs. Roper and suddenly it’s ten months later and my jeans won’t zip without a generous greasing of crisco. In an effort to lose weight I have been eating vegan and not drinking. In other words I am a barrel of fun, and a hostesses’ worst nightmare. However, I still have one outlet for my sugarplum dreams and that is the fabulous “The Great British Bake Off.”
