While I was visiting my family I spent a couple of hours helping out in my sister's bakery. She's loved baking for as long as I can remember, and when she developed celiac disease and was unable to eat wheat products she created her own wheat-free recipes. I feel completely unqualified to prepare any food in the bakery--as a teen learning to cook I was the one who got her hand caught between the blades of the electric mixer--but I'm a darn fine dishwasher and box builder. As compensation for my highly-skilled labor she made me two full pans of marbled cheesecake brownies. YUM!
