From the time I was just a wee little sprout, I was fascinated with the kitchen and baking. I absolutely hate cooking, but baking is another story. I’ve been baking since my mom first allowed me to use the kitchen. I started with pancakes, then moved on to cookies and brownies, and now cupcakes and even cinnamon rolls and other pastries on special occasions. I can be as creative as I want with baking. I can take recipes and replace one ingredient with another, changing things based on what people like and what they don’t like. I can also experiment with decorating and flavors. I’ve made cupcakes of all kinds- beer, Oreo, red velvet, cookie dough, apple, brownie, cheesecake, caramel, you name it.
So the reason for making this blog is that I want to share my love for baking with others. One day I hope to open a bakery of my own, but until then I’ll have this blog to share my successes and failures.
And if you wanted to meet the chef… here’s a picture of my favorite sous chef and me in action.
