Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

A Little Help From My Friends


‘Overwhelming’ doesn’t even begin to describe the amount of thoughtful comments, emails, and other little notes I’ve received lately. Really, I can’t say thank you enough for just watching the video and not quietly vomiting on your keyboard, so I wish I had time to actually answer each and every little note. There are few times that it’s such a wonderful way to be overwhelmed, but this is perhaps the best source of ‘stress’! To help ease the pressure of replying to emails, I’ve called out the help of a friend to act as a secretary for a bit.

While she’s been a huge help thus far, I can’t help but be concerned about letters falling through the cracks. It’s tough to hit all the keys for her, so typos are unavoidable, and I can’t say she’s the most computer literate… This arrangement is still on a trial basis, to say the least.

In case you still haven’t heard back from me, I’ll try to sort through things asap… Although I kind of have a feeling that my secretary here is actually making a bigger mess than I started with. Sorry for the delay, it might be a while!

  7. Hi Hannah! Good for you for delegating some responsibility to your adorable secretary. ;) I just watched the Everyday Dish segment and you did wonderfully! You should be so proud of yourself for accomplishing that feat; I’m sure it’s not easy to get in front of a camera to teach one of your recipes. I wish you’d added L.A. to your mini-tour when you were on the west coast for the Portland book signing. I’d love to meet you!


  8. I have only recently become vegan, and I have to tell you that you make being vegan look so incredibly lovely and whimsical and of course, delicious!


  9. You really did a great job on the video! And the “whoopies” look delicious! And the recipe easy enough for even us non-vegans! I do appreciate that!

  15. Hahaha, what a great post! Your secretary is so stylish.

    And I just found out about your video on Everyday Dish so I had to watch it, of course. You did such a great job! I felt like I learned some things I didn’t know before, too. :) Yay! And now I am thinking I need some cookies.


  16. OMG! You have created some cute little creatures, but this one takes the cake! Out of control adorableness!!!


  17. BTW, I think I speak for many of your viewers when I say, you are a NATURAL behind the camera.


  18. Your bunny is so adorable. I have two mice and a cat helping me at my desk at work. When I was away during the office luau, my co-workers made sure they got tropical umbrellas and joined the party!


  19. Hi!!

    Congratulations to your assistant, she is the most cute ever!!!
