I've never been particularly good at baking, but I've always enjoyed it. I think the fact that I grew up watching my Mom be an awesome highly trained Pastry chef has rubbed off on me... So I can often "expertiment" and follow recipes loosely (or not at all) and still have sueess. Like I've mentioned before, I have fun with my baking experiments at night sometimes after Rowen goes to bed. EATING the end result is definitely my favourite part though. I haaate cleaning up afterwards.
This past week, I made some mini cheesecakes. Some had oreo crusts and some had chocolate chip cookie crust. I also improvised the caramel sauce.
Lowell bought some "Pirate cupcake" liners and flags, so these caramel pool cheesecakes became known as Pirate Cheesecakes.
The week before, I also made another peach cobbler. Lowell and I have been buying lots of peaches this summer. I've been working on inventing my special almond-y cobbler top.
A good summer for pretty peaches!
