Sweet Steps

Project Cookie

Not too long ago, I acquired a truly massive pastry book. Did you know that pound cake was traditionally made with one pound each of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour? You probably knew that, but I think that's pretty cool. Other things I've received lately: a ton of encouragement from some of the lovely people around me and a true understanding that I love something and might also be pretty good at it.

So naturally, here we are. A floor dusted with flour. A camera donning smears of dough. A massive pastry book with scribbles and notes. A kitchen full of cookie-sheet-muffin-pan-mixing-bowl stuffed cabinets. For a little while, this will be a work in progress and will probably change as I get my bearings and figure out what works for me. I realize that not everyone I know will be on board, and I've decided I'm ok with that. But for those that are, I hope you enjoy all the sweet steps, and if nothing else, at least my (and hopefully your) sweet tooth will be satisfied.

  3. Heya! I discovered your blog through twitter and am currently postponing my morning workout while I read through your posts! Just discovered you are a fellow lawyer too ... I can very much empathise with this statement: "Law school is not exactly conducive to dreams." I have always loved cooking and baking, but ever since law school and now that I am working as a lawyer as well I have definitely needed this creative outlet much more than before - something to balance the late nights staring at a screen or ploughing through tons of documents.

    I should really get of my behind and go to the gym though ... will stop by again later!
