I love food, and I love making it. Baking is a rewarding and relaxing activity for me. It's a way to get friends together, and enjoy good food.
Here's a few of the items I've baked over the last few weeks. I'm glad I started going to the gym!
|If there is anything I get a little arrogant about, it's my cheesecake. I prefer them plain. You can't hide mistakes when there's no added junk all over the cake.|
|I think that I found my favorite way to eat cheesecake is with some raspberry glaze.|
|A standard item in my kitchen is applesauce bread. I tell people to think about banana bread...but without waiting for the bananas to turn.|
|Coffee cake. Who doesn't love coffee cake?|
|With everyone going gluten free, I tried my hand at gluten free blueberry muffins. They came out very good.|
|Bacon focaccia bread with pesto.|
|My first try at Japanese cheesecake. It isn't very sweet, so adding fruit is a must. The simple syrup soaked in and messed up the texture a little.|
|Japanese cheesecake take 2. I worked on the technique a little, and decided to topping until it was time to serve. Much better the second time around.|
