I like to bake. It makes me happy. I love to see the reactions on other people’s faces when they eat something that I’ve baked. It’s a sort of opposite Schadenfreude…get pleasure from other people’s pleasure.
I should really call this Everything But The Cake. I’m not a cake person. Cake is ok. But sometimes, you just get too much of it. And I haven’t really tasted a frosting that I couldn’t live without. I know, blasphemy to some of you! I don’t expect that I will go into the world of cakes here (although I have been known to make a delightful rum cake, and all of its variants thereof), but there definitely might be a cupcake recipe or two along the way.
I have a tremendous sweet tooth. Luckily, my fiance also suffers from the same affliction! We found ourselves buying a package of cookies from the grocery store often enough for me to start going through all the recipes that I have collected over the years (and I have a lot), and start experimenting.
So, I will try to post a new recipe every week along with pictures and commentary on how it goes. Please leave comments, suggestions for new recipes, etc…
