Well, it appears I have this disappearing act down pat; I don’t even need to practice, I simply need to be too busy (or lazy) to sit in front of my computer and write up new posts to share with you. The truly sad thing is that I have so very much to share!
Anyone that has been checking in on this site might think that I haven’t been baking at all in the past…um…several…months when, in fact, the exact opposite is true. You may have noticed that although I didn’t find time to do full posts on them I did post 9 new recipes to my recipe index (5 in March and 4 just a couple weeks ago). But those recipes represent only the tiniest fraction of my baking experiments and adventures.
I find myself spending a prodigious amount of time on TasteSpotting and FoodGawker each week (some might say a bit too much time). By the time my weekend rolls around I’ve managed to collect an impressive stack of recipes that I simply must try. Sometimes they sound perfect just as they are written but more often than not the recipes I find inspire me to create new versions of my very own. On average I’ve been testing four new recipes a week which involves running through the recipes once as written and then testing the variations I’ve dreamed up, both small and large. On more ambitious weekends I’ve been known to try as many as 8 new recipes because I just couldn’t narrow it down any further than that. Let me tell you, my co-workers (and Prince Charming’s as well) have definitely enjoyed this flurry of baking but I’ve decided that I need to cut back a bit so that I can take the time to share these baking adventures with you…so, let’s give this another go, shall we?
