  6. Oh, I don’t think I could read cooking magazines at the gym, I’d probably jump off the treadmill to run home and start baking! These wedges look great, your friend is quite lucky!

  8. Oatmeal is one of my favorites and adding cranberries to the formula makes it even better. You are a good friend and I so get the warm out of the oven thing, nothing is better!
