How My Blog Came To Be

Many of us have been inspired by the newly-realsed, 2009 hit, "Julie and Julia", based on a blog similar to this. This spectacular movie, starring the amazing Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, really inspired me to try to cook much more often. I decided to attempt something much like Julie's challenge, but something with a broader time limit- like 2 years, which means that I will be finished by the end of 8th grade. I am still in the process of deciding what cook book to progress through, and I will soon ask my mom to help me decide what would be best. I haven't done much with "real meal food"; you could call me more of an "begginer pastry chef". I enjoy cooking breads, cakes, cupcakes, and cookies in my free time, and even my fist cake was complimented heavily. I recall it being a white cake (from scratch of course- most likely from a James Beard cookbook or perhaps The Silver Palate) with dark chocolate icing (handmade by moi). It was a small, 2 layer cake with fresh rasberries from our garden, and it was topped with more fresh rasberries and i white delilah. Scrumptious... Especially for it being my first ever cake.
