Prep. Time 15 years


  • 2 lbs. fresh oranges
  • 35 unfinished pieces in a folder titled “Stories”
  • Lots and lots of chocolate
  • Plane tickets dating back to 1999
  • Fashion magazines.  Of all types.  Stacked unevenly, not organized by month and year.
  • A pinch of self-reflection
  • 2 tbs. bookishness
  • 7 cups loyalty to friends and family
  • 2 lbs. extroversion and outgoingness (is that a word?)


Mix all the ingredients together in a witches’ cauldron until pink and nice-smelling.  Pour the batter into a pan and bake for 15 years until soft and melts in your mouth.  Make sure not to overcook…otherwise, you can start all over again.

Serve/Garnish with…

  • A slightly mismatched patchwork family
  • 3 cups curly, bipolar blonde hair
  • Neon raspberry hipster glasses
  • Insomnia-like sleeping habits
  • Way too much makeup

Serve warm and enjoy!
