Wait. Don’t answer that. If my absence went unnoticed, I might not want to know. But I do want you to know that there’s a good reason I’ve been out of Bakery Boy Blog action for the past three months.
As a freelance writer, I cover many other topics besides baking. Recently I had the opportunity to coauthor a book-length report about deadly tornadoes that swept through Alabama (where I live) last spring and to develop recommendations for how the state could better prepare for and recover from future natural catastrophes. Researching the subject for the Tornado Recovery Action Council, which was appointed by Alabama’s governor, has been time-consuming but extremely rewarding.
Now that the project is wrapping up (just in time for holidays where foods, especially desserts, take center stage), I’m ready to get back to visiting bakeries and baking breads, pies, cookies and trying out any worthy recipes that come my way. As always, I’ll be sharing my finds with you.
Thanks again for following the Bakery Boy Blog, please pay attention to tornado warnings and seek shelter, and by all means fill me in on any new favorite bakeries you’ve discovered lately.

Glad you’re back! Congrats on the research job for your home-state. Next time you’re in or near Asheville, NC, let me know. I’ll be glad to let you sample my cheesecakes! Happy Holidays-
I missed you! Yes, really I did! Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas – only a week til the boys come home!
Glad to have you back and that you’re through with the tornado book. You finished a lot faster than I did!
I was just thinking about you yesterday! I’m glad all is going well. Congratulations on the book! I’m looking forward to more Bakery Boy Blog posts.
Good to hear from you, and congrats on your recent writing assignment. We (I) definitely noticed your absence and I’m looking forward to some new posts and recipes.
Glad all is well!
I was afraid I had gotten unsubscribed somehow. Congratulations on your report. May it be used to save lives.
Thank you, all of the above, for being such loyal readers. It’s good to be back in the Bakery Boy saddle after my three-month hiatus chasing tornadoes! – Bakery Boy
