I love everything in its place. Unfortunately, living in two pricey urban centers for most of my adult life has left me long on theater tickets and short on storage space. Cupcake carrier in with the overcoats, oversized cookie sheets under the bed.

What's a baker-ice cream maker-sweets taster to do? Love the small stuff. Make a pint and take it with you. To the movies or a picnic.

OK, so maybe we're like fish in that way. Or crows. Or some other discerning scavenger of the natural world.  Whatever.
