As you know (or maybe you don’t), I love to bake. I love to bake more than cooking. Maybe it is because baking seems to mark a fun event or celebration usually or even entertaining while it seems cooking is something you have to do everyday. It usually tastes pretty darn good and is usually not that good for you. But, it is the creating that I love. You can see my love of baking here and here and here.
One of my favorite cookbooks has always been Martha Stewart Baking Handbook. I have decided to bake my way through this entire book. I do NOT intend to go in order; that would be too boring. But, I do intend to enjoy every bit of it. Why am I doing it?
Maybe to improve my baking skills, to learn something….but, really to make sure that I continue to enjoy my free time doing things that I love. And, baking is one of those. I will separate the recipes into categories that you will find below the “Being Martha” tab above. This will help you to find the recipes and to easily find them. I will not post every single recipe as I do not want to be arrested! However, I will link to the online version of these recipes from the Martha Stewart website when they are readily available.
I will post tips and tricks, my blunders and things I learned along the way. I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I do.
To all my friends and family who will be enjoying the fruits of my labor, I suggest a good exercise regiment! :-)
