New Classes Begin Today

Wednesday, January 16, 2008


I should be excited, filled with anticipation about the new semester, but I am not. Sad, isn't it?  I think I need an attitude adjustment, and fast.  Knowing you have a problem is the first step in getting well, so at least that is positive!  I'm sure once I get started I will feel that […]

Cookbooks and Cakes

Tuesday, January 15, 2008


So, my best friend in the world is getting married in England this October.  It is a long story, but the short version is that she met him, a very nice man who is also a cutie, on the internet, went to meet him in person, fell in love, moved away, and is prepared to live happily ever […]

So, I did something bad … and other things.

Monday, January 14, 2008


I'm not happy about something I did last night, but it had to be done. I dropped a class for the upcoming semester.  Aside from the faint blush of shame I feel that I dropped the class before it began, I find I am more relieved than anything else.  The class was on Saturdays, and […]

Happy New Year

Friday, January 11, 2008


So, I start school next week and I am not all that jazzed about it.  Aside from not wanting to spend two nights a week not getting home until after 10pm, I am not sure it is worth my time anymore. Why, might you ask? No, I have not lost my love of baking or […]

In the blink of an eye …

I am shocked that the year is nearly at an end!!  It doesn't seem like it could be Thanksgiving yet, but it is.  And so I sit here, after months of inactivity, and write about what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful that I am going to school.  I love what I […]

Flower Basket

Saturday, September 15, 2007


This is what I did last night.  I made it for one of my co-workers and it was pretty good.  I have had such fun making different flowers, but I like the roses the best.  School has been good.  I learned that I do not enjoy making fancy desserts, but I need to learn how […]

Fall 2007

Thursday, August 30, 2007


Well, Fall 2007 has begun! This semester I am taking two classes.  Hospitality Supervision and Advanced Pastry.  I feel kind of cool at school this semester because I can tell who the new students are and I feel a sort of smug sense of "I know what you don't know, neener-neener."  Wrong, I know, but […]

Cake Decorating and the Dentist

Thursday, July 26, 2007


In my gallery I have added a section called cake decorating and that gallery has all the projects from my class this summer.  So far I am liking the class and our teacher, and I hope to get a lot out of it.  We have done a cute rainbow cake, that I gave to my […]

Nearly a year ago …

Thursday, June 28, 2007


Wow … time really goes by fast!!! It is about one year ago this month that I made the decision to go to culinary school, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  There is so much I still have to do but I am still so excited, one year later, […]

Over a month later …

Monday, May 21, 2007


To be honest with you, if you are even out there, I am not sure how many people really read this little blog of mine, so I have been bad about not posting.  On the other side of that coin, how an I going to find more readers of my mundane little blog if I […]
