Flying high in my little baking world!
I’ve gotten five orders in the past couple days… cookies are up to $5/dozen, which is exciting for me. I still think it’s crazy that people are actually buying my stuff! Also, I’ve been offered my first official job- a country club wants me to be their pastry chef, at least for the summer. Still figuring out the technicalities, but still. Eek :) It’s just starting...
Not to go all Julia Child on y'all, but...
I’m in love with food. Check out tonight’s dinner: You know what? Screw it. I love Julia Child, and I am happily admitting to going all Julia Child-esque in the culinary department right now.
Guess what's for dinner tonight?!
Hint: And some amazing alfredo sauce as well. Not bad for the last meat-free Friday of Lent!
Spent today helping at an ACF event in my city!
It was great. I worked the carving station for a local restaurant opening in May… On the menu: Smoked ribs (apple & honey glaze) House-made Polish sausage (also smoked) Various dipping sauces (one was smoked apple… AMAZING) Apple-fennel coleslaw It was an amazing experience! I met a lot of local chefs and teachers of local culinary schools, so it also gave my networking a...

Killer recipe comin' your way!
Get stoked. This is a good one. :)
What's your favorite kind of cookie?
I'm making a bunch of stuff this weekend...
Prepare thyselves. On the list: Martin Luther King Jr. cookies (pretty epic, if I do say so myself) Lemon Meringue Pie Sauerkraut (Not baking, but still, party tomorrow! Yeah German heritage!) Misc. cookies… possibly some snickerdoodles. (Or, as my three-year-old niece says, “snickerdoodledoos.”)
Stupid school, getting in the way of my baking...
My kitchen is way too clean and my oven is actually cold for once!

Double Chocolate Cloud Cookies

It’s originally from a Light Baking cookbook (there are only 33 calories per cookie) and it looks really cool on a cookie tray :) Ingredients: 3 egg whites 1/8 t cream of tartar 3/4 C sugar 1 t vanilla 2 T baking cocoa (unsweetened) 3/4 C Chocolate chips (semi-sweet or bittersweet are best) Chocolate Drizzle Glaze (Combine...

I can’t start the desserts for tomorrow because my brother’s making rice pudding (the slow-cook version) that takes like five million hours in the oven. Hilarious-mock-angry verbal argument has ensued. Anyone wanna let me use their kitchen? Free food’s in it for you… :)
Have you ever made/eaten pizza bread?
…Because it is one of the yummiest things IN THE WORLD. Simple yeast dough, then you roll it into a rectangle, add olive oil, mozzarella, pepperoni, parmesan, and whatever else your heart desires. Then roll it up, tuck in the edges, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350’ for about 20 minutes… mmmm. We made the yeast dough on Tuesday in culinary, then...
Happy New Year!!!
…As you can tell, I’m celebrating by having a forever-alone nerd party. Then running, then movie with my brother, then ringing in 2012. Hope all of your nights are significantly more exciting than mine! :)
Miracle Whip is NOT Mayonnaise
…Family gatherings with a bounty of those sketchy pasta salads make me want to scream this news flash to everyone. Tuna and Miracle Whip do NOT go well together!
