I love Kerrygold! A few weeks ago the nice people at Kerrygold offered to send me a package stuffed full of grass-fed cheeses and butters in exchange for two blog posts that featured their products*. As I said before, I love Kerrygold, so I was more than happy to participate! For November they wanted me […]

A Weekend Spent Baking

I tend to dive head first into projects that are of interest to me.  At the moment, and it should come as no surprise to anyone, my obsession is bread. Now, we are not talking about the homogeneous loafs of bland white sandwich bread that line the shelves at the super-mega mart.  What we are talking […]

Well, the pizza crust recipe from my text book ROCKED!!  Crispy and crunchy on the outside with a soft chewy inside with an irregular cell structure.  Perfect texture on the bottom of the crust too … crisp yet chewy.  This is my new pizza crust recipe.  Having to start the day before is well worth it!  […]

Pizza Dough

I am making pizza for dinner, and I started the dough yesterday. The crust starts with a biga that was allowed to ferment overnight in a cold oven.  (As it has been in the 30's here the last few days, the oven is warmer than the counter, and I know how cold inhibits yeast production)  This […]

Spring Semester

When I made my first girlish attempt at higher education the semesters just dragged by.  I felt like three months was a lifetime, and the time between semesters was just a blink of your eye.  Now that I am older I find that all time, no matter what I am doing, goes by in the […]

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 […]

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!)  […]
