I love food! I love to cook and I LOVE to bake. I’m not so keen on the “cleaning up after” part though.
I don’t do so well with yeast. That bothers me greatly. I’m awesome with getting yeast to bloom, and even the first rise… but after that, blech. I just attempted english muffins and they were not so good. I don’t like to fail, ever, so I haven’t spent enough time trying recipes to see where I’m getting it wrong. I’m also trying to lose weight, so trying to perfect my yeast baking technique at this point would not be helpful.
Another weak point is pie crusts. However, I know what I need to do to make them work (everything super cold, and don’t mess with it too much), I’m just too lazy to want to try. Especially when pie crusts are so cheap around the holidays. However, this Thanksgiving will be extra special, so I’ll be attempting pie crusts prior to then to make sure I get it down right.
Anyway, here are some posts of my favorite recipes. I am not a photographer by any means, so please forgive the bad pictures.
