As much as we're able, yes, that's exactly right. It's not new advice, but it bears repeating again and again.

Very kind of you. Thanks.

So, so, SO hard.

Do it. I trust you to tell me how it is because... I'm still going to eat it as a salad.

Give Otis a tight squeeze at every opportunity, even when you have to reach your arms up to do so. xoxoxoxox

Hi Kate, Happily you won't have to stay up too late. The chocolates really just take a few minutes to make, and you can let them harden on the baking sheet overnight while you get some sleep. (Also: Not having to fold paper Valentines anymore is kind of awesome.)

Hi Julie! So glad you enjoyed them. It's nice that some of these archival recipes continue to find new mouths to appreciate them.

Please continue reading. I need people like you here to guide me as I walk this path. You can reassure me that everything will continue to be okay.

Good lord, help me. I'm *this* close.

Awww, yes. I'm thinking I should do a start-up that makes Sweethearts for adults, but not the pervy ones you sometimes see. Like: "I still like you. Thank you for always unloading the dishwasher." That would be romantic. Also, the hearts would have to be pretty big to fit all that, but whatever.

It's all I can offer, other than this: The thick of it can be hard. Be gentle with yourself.

She was. I remember! What happened? No answers from me.

Sigh.... xo

STOP MAKING WATER RUN FROM MY EYES.

I love that they're a celebratory candy for newborns and that you call them little mice. I never stop learning new stuff here... thanks, Edie!

Just you wait...

Thank you, Ms. Shanna. {hi!}

Look for them at Indian markets as you're unlikely to find them easily at a standard grocery store. (Or try Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Spicy-World-Sugar-Coated-Fennel/dp/B000JMBFZ8)

Karen, it's nice to see you here as well as on Instagram (which is where I usually see you!). Thank you for reminding me of the proper word for these sweets. Mendiants sound much more glamorous than humdrum "chocolate disks."

I feel you, Rebecca. And don't worry about the speed of it all. You can't change the pace, so just keep your eyes clear and open so you don't miss anything, and hang on tight.
Toggle Commented Feb 9, 2015 on The march of time, oh Valentine. at 5 second rule
You are always so very kind. x.

In thinking about parenthood, Kristin, I find myself thinking more and more about what the parenting experience was like for my own parents back when I was a kid. I'm so glad you found the same resonance here.

That's awesome. And I like your description very much. I'm using pomegranate molasses all over the place these days. It's got the viscosity of a really aged balsamic but a sweet-sour flavor profile that's really versatile. (Try it on yogurt!)

Maybe you should get some crumbs on it just to accelerate the inevitable. (And thanks!)
Toggle Commented Feb 9, 2015 on Bless this mess. at 5 second rule
Well, then, I consider that a great success. Life is harsh enough as it is, right?
