    I love sweets and enjoy making them

    for others. I'm also fairly good at it. Always a fairly good surprise to any woman I date.

    Baking It Away!

    I love to bake. It makes me feel productive on my worst days, and it's a great treat to share! It's one of the only ways I can accept a compliment and not feel uncomfortable about it. Now if only there was a way to stop weight gain when it comes to eating your work! This fat-free...

    I'm not too great at cooking,

    but baking is pretty fun. I don't do it often (my kitchen and oven are too small), but I don't mind spoiling people (and myself) with baked goods from time to time.

    Better Nutters

    I just picked up a Bouchon Bakery book and made the Better Nutters. Pretty Damn good. I think the filling is incredible; basically meringue infused with buttercream if that makes sense. I think the peanut butter sandwich cookies from the 'Witchcraft book are better but still...

    My passion for baking started

    when I was in fifth grade, which was a pretty big year for me. Anyway, we were having our own little Thanksgiving feast, so I decided that I would bring in apple pie. I had only made pie three times in my life, and so the next day when everyone had some, they all loved it and it...

    Stress Reliever

    I love to bake as a stress reliever. If no one has ever tried that it makes your mind focus on task at hand so you won't be so stressed and upset. It usual clears my mind. If haven't tried it you should. Worst case senario you bake something fabulous and get to eat it.
