A New Adventure


Today has already been quite a day! I have been in cooking overdrive preparing for my new gig at the cooking school. Today is the orientation, and we will meet each other, get all the information on the open house, kitchen rules, etc. I have to admit, after reading the other chef's bio's I am a bit intimidated...words sprinkled in there like "worked with James Beard award winning chef so-and-so" wow, and how about Micheline Star restaurants on some of those bios...all I can hope is that I am there in that group for a reason!

This morning I made really great blueberry muffins from the Martha Stewart Baking Handbook - totally reccomend. I wanted to use my new giant muffin tins that I got second hand from the cake store in San Marcos for only 7$ each! Love them! Then I am making a cake for our friends for pick up on Saturday...they picked Red Velvet Cake...well, I wasn't as successful with that adventure. I will have to make it over, which SUCKS since I have such little time. Then I made some excellent honey-wheat bread with pecans...sooooooo good. I made that recipe up myself so I guess I can be happy about that success.

Wish me luck today!
