I gave in and got a blog....

So it's 1:24 AM and even though I should be asleep right now I decided to do the cliche and go with the crowd and create my own blog.  Hopefully this will be an on going affair and won't be something that I just give up on in a few weeks time.  Really I am going to use this blog to help me stay focused and to express/share my joy of baking and the experiments that I will hopefully try.

As you should know this summer I have been involved with an amazing internship at the Emerald Grande resort in Destin, Fl.  What originally started out as a job in guest services turned into working Desserts as one of the Pastry cooks in the Commander's Palace Restaurant.  For those of you that don't know CP is very fine dining and I am still surprised at how much I have been allowed to do there.  In fact at one point I was working more than MJ who is the main pastry person.  My internship is slowly drawing to a close, with the last day being this Tues the 17th and I feel that I must keep myself motivated with my endeavours.

My ultimate goal right now is to own my own bakery or pastry shop.  This blog (hopefully) (in the long run) should help show my journey from a college girl into making my dream come true.  Most entries won't be alot of "emotional sharing..." blah blah blah but will be fun and hopefully I can show you what to do (and maybe what not to do) when it comes to baking.  I'm no expert but  I love desserts!

Do to my phone crashing for a bit over the summer all of my great dessert pictures were deleted (i didn't have a chance to get them on my computer :( ) so this will not be about the past but about the future.

As I try recipes I will (try) to post pictures and maybe even share the recipe with you! Hopefully there will be a few cakes and decorating involved as well.

Well I should probably attempt to go to sleep now, working 45 hours a week doesn't leave much room for anything else.

Until next time.

So my phone did delete most of my pic but I was able to salvage this one.  Not the best but its a fig pecan tart and is served with a scoop of vanilla icecream
