I love this time of year, when the days are getting longer rather than shorter, everything is intensely green, and the earliest flowers are starting to bud. Around here, daffodils and other bulbs pop first, and then the trees flower (first magnolia, then plums). I have no idea what these flowers are, but I am sure someone will tell me. Those of you with a snowy winter may want to punch me right now, which I understand, but in about 6 months, I will be jealous of your hot summer.
ANYWAY, about that True Orange Genoise? Well, turns out my oven was out of commission bit longer than I thought. RHC and I were together on the kitchen floor trying to think of a way around that.
