A Day In The Kitchen

Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Harriet Van Horne

Most of you who know me know that I love to bake...and cook. I love to experiment with different ideas and different recipes, combining things until ultimate palate satisfaction is achieved.
So, I thought I would give you a taste of a day in the kitchen. When the time arises, I enjoy being in the kitchen for hours on end and then sitting down to take my taste buds for a ride! However, there is a certain atmosphere which is best for creating the "mood" and I have a photo journey of that to share with you...

1st... if you are baking, you need to nourish yourself with food, as to not indulge on licking the spoon, spatula, and bowl continually. mmm...sloppy joes

Next, you'll need to have some inspiring tunes...I chose, this day, to have three new songs on repeat, and for this my roommates loved me!

You'll need to make sure you have the necessary ingredients for your recipes!! (Butter makes everything BETTER!~)

You'll also need the right apparel...the heat in the kitchen is unbelievable.

The results: Fudge Puddles, superbowl cupcakes, and homemade oreos.

I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs:

It is obvious what team I was routing for during the big game!

Next time I need to make the oreos a little thinner...but they were very oreo like...crunchy with the ooey gooey cream center...but, like I said much too thick for an oreo.

Well, my quest continues for great recipes and great combinations to adequately surprise and excite your tastebuds!

Busy Bee

Oh, my dear blog...I wish I had time to tell you things...
To my few faithful readers, sorry it has been so sparse.
Life is crazy and I will hope for a few spare minutes to post some of these things:

A Day in the kitchen
A Challenge of Faith
The Famous Bun Story
The six hour first date

Until then, keep your eyes peeled for God's beauty...It's all around you!
