For Monet

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Today's post is a dedication to my friend Monet.

One of the privileges of blogging for the past eleven months is the community of bloggers I've met.  I've made some wonderful friends, all of whom I've got to know through their posts.  Monet is one of those people who has a kind word for everyone.  She's a wonderful writer and baker, and I've truly enjoyed getting to know her through her posts.

However, it's been a difficult year for Monet.  A number of family tragedies have overwhelmed her and her loved ones.  So when two fellow bloggers, Lizzy and Kate, contacted a few of us and asked us each to dedicate a recipe to her, it was my honour to say yes.

I decided to dedicate my Brown Butter Toffee Blondies.  I've just discovered the recipe this year, but now it's one of my favourites.

Monet, I hope you know how much you are loved in the blogging world.  We are all rooting for you.

Hello my sweet friend. I wish I could come over and give you a big hug. You have been one of my biggest supports over these past few months, and words alone cannot express how much you mean to me. These blondies are beautiful, and everytime I make them, I will think of you. Much love!

Love to you too, Monet. It's all worthwhile if I've been able to lighten your load just a little. Take care.
