Monday, March 28, 2011 it goes!

Alright, this marks the first entry for my blogging future! I am very new to this, so please bear with me as I learn! I want to use this first entry as a "get to know me" type thing.

Baking is something I have always been passionate about and a career I have always thought about. Out of high school, I enrolled in the baking and pastry program at Le Cordon Bleu in MN. I was there for four months and honestly did not learn a thing. After talking to people in the baking industry, I learned that the particular branch I was at was not highly regarded by professionals. So that was that, and I quit. Sad to say, that school really turned me off to the whole profession for awhile. So I went back to 'regular' school and tried out several majors...changing my mind often.

So here I find myself again...I am a year away from graduating with a geography degree and have rediscovered my passion for baking. The degree will be good to have, but i know for sure that baking is what I want to pursue. I went out one day a few months ago and bought a KitchenAid and knew that was a turning point. Over these last few months I have just been practicing things in my own kitchen. Next week though, I start a baking class at a local craft store and I CANNOT WAIT!

I am going to use this blog to chronicle my progress with things like recipes and just overall struggles/triumphs I guess.

Disclaimer: I am not good at photographing food, so I apologize in advance for the unspectacular pictures. I honestly follow a lot of baking blogs and their pictures are so beautiful...someday I will get there :) 

Also I want to send out a sappy 'thank you' to...
My family for always sticking by me throughout my indecisiveness.
My best friend and editor Tim for suggesting this whole blog idea to me! 

Enjoy and thank you for stopping by!

Me, my brother, sister and my mom (Maui '11)
