Love Hurts

During the holidays, we had the opportunity to watch my sister's kids for a couple of weeks while she and her husband went on a special vacation.

One of the best parts of that visit was this question from my 8-year-old nephew, Schuyler:

"Jo, what do people mean when they say 'love hurts'?"

Dare I say that I suspect my nephew has been exposed to some 80s rock? I certainly hope so...

I love bavarian cream eclairs

So, there is a definite possibility I have said this before, but I absolutely love, love, LOVE the bavarian cream eclairs that are sold at a little bakery near my house. The thing is that lately I have been having some stomach problems and most of my eating is confined to pretty plain rice and potatoes. I don't know if it is because of that, but I have definitely started a serious craving. What I really want to know, though, is if any of you have made bavarian cream? If so, do you have a good recipe? I just love that it isn't like I'm eating an eclair full of pudding.

Oh eclair, why do you tease me so?
