A few months ago, I was attracted to the world of blogging for one selfish reason...I want to join Tuesdays with Dorie! I have thought about creating my own blog so I can join in the fun with the TWD bakers, but since I plan to start a kitchen renovation in the next couple of weeks, I figured I wouldn't be able to contribute for a couple of months, so why not wait?
This morning, TWD gave me the push I needed to get going: Laurie (the moderator) is cutting off membership in what has been a very popular blog, on October 31st. Kitchen or no kitchen, I need to get moving!
Looking back, I have "blogged" before, albeit not on an actual blog. I attended a Pastry Boot Camp at the Culinary Institute of America in January 2007, and every night I emailed stories to a group of friends. They loved it, and I enjoy going back and remembering the craziness and the tranquility of being in a place that's all about food.
So pardon the plain, boring look of my blog. As time goes on, maybe I'll get savvy enough to make it beautiful and splashy. Or maybe, like my baking and my food, it will be homely but delicious. Stay tuned!
