Hi everyone! I know, I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted something new. With the Holidays and moving across the country, it’s been hard to find the time to write. Now I’m taking the time though. I’ve baked a few things since December. This beautiful flourless chocolate cake from Baked was for our New Years Eve party.
I made this sour cherry slump (also from Baked) for our first breakfast of 2012. Quite tasty! You can also see the nice double skillet cooker I got for Christmas. Can’t wait to bake bread with it!
This blog is quickly coming up on it’s two year anniversary. Yes that’s right! I’ve been doing this for almost two full years now! I’m having so much fun baking, experimenting with different recipes and taking pictures of it all to share! Writing does not come easily to me though. I’m finding it hard to come up with something interesting to say every week. So I’m changing the format of this blog a bit. I’m going to focus more on the baking and taking pictures aspect of it, while the written part will be shorter. I’m still going to write up tips and tricks, things I’ve discovered doing a recipe and where I got the recipe from or the recipe it self, I’m just going to put less pressure on myself to come up with paragraphs of things to say. I hope you will still find this blog interesting and come see what I bake. Hopefully even be inspired to bake and try these recipes yourself!
This is another great recipe from Baked. I love that book! It’s the chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Smells heavenly!
Finally, the dark chocolate macaron, recipe from Le Larousse du Chocolat, also a great book. A little tip working with egg whites: always use real eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. The cartons of eggs whites just don’t whisk up as nicely as the real thing.
