There are Federal holidays, actual holidays, and Valentine’s Day. And then there is this other date (March 28) that really ought to be declared a holiday. It’s the birthday of Lisa Kern, humor writer extraordinaire.
She spins delightful and hilariously amusing tales about the funny side of family life – parenting three boys and being married for just about 42 centuries. She makes all those day-to-day experiences seem delightful and touching.
Having Lisa in my life is a gift. And today on her birthday, I wanted to make a cake that she could enjoy that is not only gluten-free, but calorie free.
And since we live on opposite edges of our continent, it will have to suffice as a virtual cake (totally calorie free). I will happily eat a slice for her. And sing Happy Birthday and blow out the candles in her honor.
Lisa adores custard filled cream puffs covered in gooey chocolate, so I made her some this weekend, gluten-free. They are amazingly good and I wish she could share one with me, but sending it cross-continent might be risky business.
Happy birthday, Lisa Kern. Here’s to many more!
(p.s. – I haven’t forgotten – recipe coming!)
