Baking?

TODAY????

You've got to be kidding, right?

Tomorrow, I'll get back to reality and bake some bread.

all i baked today was a sweet potato casserole to take to a dinner. last night i made a micro wave bread pudding. does that count? instead of milk i used half and half, instead of white sugar i used splenda's brown sugar. a little to sweet. will fix that next time, it was very tasty.

I haven't posted here for awhile because I haven't felt like baking, but I am getting more in the mood as I feel better. I went out with some friends as one was celebrating her birthday and I made a chocolate raspberry torte. The "cake" was 8" layers of crisp cookie wafers which when layered with chocolate whipping cream and raspberry sauce, then chilled, became nice and soft. I then drizzled chocolate ganache on the top and the individual serving plates.

It was a real hit and has gotten me in the mood to keep creating again!

Wow, LPBeier, what a cake! Remind me to invite you to my next birthday party!


I may be offline for awhile as I try to figure out how best to remove the puddles of drool from my keyboard...

Thanks, Russell and Joe you are too kind. Maybe I should hook up with FedEx?
