Kerrygold Open-Faced Breakfast Toasts

Monday, January 5, 2015


I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead […]

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.  […]

Bread, bread and more bread …

Wed, Mar 7, 2007


It is hard to write unique and witty commentary about school this semester because each week it is pretty much the same thing.  Night 1 – Mix pre-ferments, make quick bread, prepare ingredients for next night final dough, clean up and go home. Night 2 – Mix final dough, ferment, mix and bake quick bread, […]

Getting Things Done!!

Wed, Feb 7, 2007


Well!!  I will start with my good news to share this week this week! We got all the bread from Monday and Tuesday baked this week!!!   We also got out closer to our end time as well, so all things considered things were good!  One of the people in my group has gone missing and […]

Slacking off, Starters and School Stories

Wed, Jan 31, 2007


Well, I said I would take pictures of the pizza I made, but I didn't.  To be honest with you, I was so ready to eat when it was done I did not even give the camera one thought.  It was very tasty (like the last time) and it looked lovely.  You will have to […]
