I was ecstatic when I found out that it had been chosen to be a finalist in two different categories. But I almost didn't go to the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards ceremony last Friday night. What was that all about?
The biggest hunger I feel when I watch Cake Boss is not for a piece of cake. It's for a piece of the Valastro clan's sense of connectedness and rapport. I feel like I'm there, in the bakery or in one of their home kitchens, their warmth around me, cajoling me to have one more helping.
