Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014


I’m celebrating spring with cake! Spring in Texas is part beauty and part terror. The beauty comes from the wildflowers that spring to life, seemingly overnight, along the roads and in fields. I drove down to Houston last weekend and was dazzled by fields filled to bursting with vivid Bluebonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, and Buttercups. […]

So, I did something bad … and other things.

Mon, Jan 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

Fri, Jan 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 …

Mon, Nov 19, 2007


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

Sat, Sep 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

Thu, Aug 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

Thu, Jul 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 …

Thu, Jun 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 …

Mon, 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 […]

Nearing the end of yet another semester …

Wed, Apr 18, 2007


Well, the semester is almost over and, aside from next week, I am getting ready for another round of practicals. Yay. I have no idea what we will be required to do, but I have made some not-too-subtle-hints that only one item to present would be super nice of our teacher, and much appreciated among […]

Midterm Practicals and Things that Make me go “F*CK OFF!!!”

Thu, Mar 22, 2007


Well, midterm practicals are over.  I did pretty well, I guess.  The kid in me loves the fact that it is over and I did ok, the perfectionist in me hates that I lost 5 points for salt.  SALT!!  Anyway, salt aside, it was good, and 145 out of 150 is noting to sneeze at.  […]
