In the blink of an eye …

I am shocked that the year is nearly at an end!!  It doesn't seem like it could be Thanksgiving yet, but it is.  And so I sit here, after months of inactivity, and write about what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful that I am going to school.  I love what I am learning, even if I never do anything more with it than be an excellent home baker. I am thankful for my husband.  He is my other half. ...

Flower Basket

This is what I did last night.  I made it for one of my co-workers and it was pretty good.  I have had such fun making different flowers, but I like the roses the best.  School has been good.  I learned that I do not enjoy making fancy desserts, but I need to learn how to make them to be a well-rounded baker.  Yay. I did learn how to make a pretty kick ass soufflé that I was able to make at home.  They are far easier than I thought...

Yesterday I had a teeth cleaning at my...

Nearly a year ago …

Wow … time really goes by fast!!! It is about one year ago this month that I made the decision to go to culinary school, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  There is so much I still have to do but I am still so excited, one year later, about where I am going and what I am learning.  Has it been easy?  No, but it has not been as hard as I thought either.  The best part is learning, growing, and getting closer...

Over a month later …

To be honest with you, if you are even out there, I am not sure how many people really read this little blog of mine, so I have been bad about not posting.  On the other side of that coin, how an I going to find more readers of my mundane little blog if I do not post more.  *sigh* You will all be happy to know, if you are keeping score, that I passed Breads & Rolls with an A.  *Hooray*  I am now into my...
