One reason I decided to start this blog was because I am obsessed with trying new recipes. I don’t often don’t repeat a recipe unless I get a weird craving for it, or if someone requests it. It’s not that I hate doing it and I definitely have keepers in my recipe box that I like to go back and fiddle with or will swear by… I just love trying new recipes!
One of the reasons I fell in love with baking was because it was like science! Mix various parts together into an odd looking goo, apply heat, technique and general awesomeness and out pops this delicious concoction! Each new recipe is like a science experiment with an unproven hypothesis. Will a gorgeous, moist cake come out of the oven? Or a rock? Sometimes experiments go *BOOM* and that fact is what makes the successes all the more delicious.
So here’s my blog, tracking and reporting on my experiments. What did I learn, what was something I had never done before? Sometimes the recipes go boom, sometimes I do. And sometimes it’s just… magic. But it all goes here.
I hope you have as much fun as I do.
