Fashion bloggers, you guys. As in, people who exude so much fashion that they are selling their ideas. They will be at the conference. I swear, the idea of meeting them makes me more nervous than having to decide between chocolate chip cookies and Almond Roca Bars. I plucked my eyebrows in anticipation, even though I have straight-across bangs right now, so my eyebrows are not visible AT ALL.
Speaking of eyebrows, my sister Nikki said one time that when she is in a hurry and only has time to do one thing to get ready, she pencils her eyebrows. This made me very concerned because we have the exact same eyebrows and I never do ANYTHING to mine. What’s the one thing you do when you have 5 minutes to get dressed? Mascara? Blush? For me it’s powder and bangs.
I was trying to get Eric to help me pick out my nail polish color last night and he said, “Karen, if you’re going to bother doing anything to your nails, just go get a manicure.” Or in other words, “Give up now, Karen.” When I do my nails, they end up looking like I painted them using a pastry brush. It’s bad, guys.
I’m kind of tempted to bring some of these Blackberry Lemon Cheesecake bars to the conference. Giving away food is
the best the easiest way to win friends. Then I wouldn’t even need to tell people what The Food Charlatan is about. I’d be like here, *shoves cheesecake,* THIS is what I’m about!!
Creamy, bright lemon cheesecake with a smattering of blackberry puree on top. And the thickest crust you ever did see. It’s heaven you guys. This is a great make-ahead dessert. Absolutely no last minute prep. This is not a good last-minute dessert. Every single one of those “hurry up and cool down” minutes lasts an hour, I swear. But it’s best served completely chilled, so put your patient pants on. These bars are so worth it.

Here’s how I cut my lemon to get that twisty thing goin on. Thin slice, then slice it halfway through and twist.
