03 Feb A quick update

My orange tabby. TheMessyBaker.com

Don’t worry. The cat’s fine. I just wanted to grab your attention. I’ve got some housekeeping details to share and this fellow is way more handsome than a straw broom.

Tomorrow, The Messy Baker gets an update. This means the site will go into maintenance mode for (potentially) a few hours. What’s that mean? For me, this downtime will give me a chance to vacuum up the orange fur that’s been floating around my office. For you? It means no access to the site for a little while.  But just a little while. If all goes smoothly, The Messy Baker will be back, spilling flour and dripping chocolate in no time.

In the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram, Google+ or Twitter. If that’s too passive, you can cast a vote my way. I just learned I’ve been nominate for a Canadian Blog Award under the Best Food & Drinks Blog category.

See you Wednesday. Shall I return with apple crisp, chocolate chip cookies or Portuguese custard tarts?

    Custard tarts, please. I already have recipes for apple crisps and dozens for chocolate chip cookies.

    I second custard tarts! Also, your cat is very cuddle-able. Enjoy your down time. :)

      It seems custard tarts are the runaway winner. I’ve received emails, verbals confirmation and a few solid thumbs up from friends. I’ve posted the link today here:

      And the cat is very cuddle-able — especially when I’m working at my desk and he feels I’m not admiring him enough.
