Sometimes, you just need some sweetness in your life.
Every once in a while, throw caution to the wind.
I have been doing so well lately eating well and living an active lifestyle. (I have lost twenty pounds over the past eight months!) I feel amazing.
But here’s the thing-I love baking sweets. LOVE it.
But I refuse to gain weight and eat an unbalanced diet. Again. (I am soooo over that phase.)
So, I have come up with the perfect solution for still occasionally getting away with eating not so healthy (but incredibly delicious) food: Host parties.
Karl and I live in “the inaka” (Japanese countryside) and most of our friends have a ways to travel when they visit. Because of this, we usually end up with overnight guests. I have no problem with this. When I have a bunch of friends over to share with, I can get away with baking a pie, or cookies, or…
…this delicious bread. Ever since I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, Joy the Baker, I have been mentally drooling.
Finally, last month, I tried it. Three weekends in a row. It really makes for a perfect weekend breakfast. Especially the morning after a party when you have friends with whom to share it.
