Orange Honey Pound Cake

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. […]

Waiting for grades, and other observations

Grades come out this week at school.  They are posted tomorrow the be precise.  I am having a hard time waiting because, and this is typical of me, I am impatient.  I am the girl standing in front of the microwave willing the pop corm to pop faster … or conversely scavenging for crackers because […]

Battle of the Food Network Breasts!!

I can already tell you who the winner is. If we are going on looks alone Nigella Lawson (my new idol) wins hands down.  Her dark good looks, naturally round and curvy figure, smooth skin, and bright eyes would be enough to draw you in.  Add to this a sparkling wit and a true love […]

Boy, slap my mouth and call me a slacker!!  I have been so busy that posting here has not been a high priority, but I wanted to do the semester end round-up.  Yee-haw!  Safety & Sanitation: I got the highest score in my class on the ServSave National Exam … 98%.  I was surprised, because […]

Last week we made cakes, and I did not remember to take any pics!!!  The good news is we are decorating the cakes this Saturday so I will get to take my pics then. Cakes are pretty easy for me, in general, but our teams angel food cakes fell in the oven.  Our teacher said […]

I got 107 on my mid-term.  WOW, eh?  I got a lot of points for the extra credit she offered, and that saved my bacon! We made tarts, puff pastry dough and pate a choux (like cream puffs and eclairs) in class Saturday, but I did not get any pics this week.  (I know, naughty!)  […]

We made more pies last Saturday.  I have some great pics of them that I will post this week.  Aside from the pies being really nice, the day was total crap for me. I made someone mad in my group and I feel bad about it, but also confused.  Confused because I am not sure exactly […]

Next Saturday in Fun-Bake we are making pies.  I pretty much know how to make pies, and pie dough, so I am not too worried.  I will just listen to what the instructor has to say and follow her directions.  Heck, the formula for the crust is pretty close to mine, except I use half […]

And I got a 150 out of 150 for my cookies and corn muffins. WHEW!!! It went way better than I could have hoped!  Nerves aside, it was pretty easy to get my focus.  I did one thing at a time, and I took my time (but, neither took that long) and it paid off!  […]

I am really nervous about my mid-term practical tomorrow. I should not be, but I am.  This week I have practiced my cookies and corn muffins.  The cookies turned out ok but I feel they spread too much.  The corn muffins were lovely. So, if you read this before 12pm tomorrow please think good thoughts […]
