Working in an office environment, you can guarantee that at least a few times a month you'll walk into the galley and find an array of "treats" before you. More often than not, I dismiss them without a second thought. At the risk of sounding like a food snob, store-bought treats aren't all that enticing to me and I usually pass them up (aside from the occasional Panera bagel, which has the magical ability to turn a bad day right around!). Homemade treats, on the other hand, are a totally different story. These are fewer and farther between and when one appears, I am definitely partaking...one coworker's wife makes the best chocolate chip blondies and another coworker's wife makes these gluten free chocolate walnut cookies that I have the recipe for but am resisting making because I know I'll eat the whole batch! This pumpkin cake was brought in for Boss's Day back in October. After devouring a slice, I literally had to sit on my hands to keep myself from going back for more, releasing them only to email the baker and beg for the recipe.
