Resolved! (part two)

Baking resolutions for 2006:

1. embrace the bane of my existence (ganache)
2. pie crusts--stop being afraid! check
3. more brandied burgundy cherries
4. teach everyone to love the genoise cakes
5. buy stock in neilsen-massey
6. maybe, just maybe, learn how to pipe icing
7. bacon-bacon cheesecake
8. gluten free cakes from scratch does a gluten free pie crust from scratch count?
9. a cupcake a day keeps the doctor away check
10. take pictures of the stuff you bake, you fool check

Hmm. Guess I need to work harder at my baking resolutions.

Baking Resolutions for 2007:

1. more pies from the pie and pastry bible
2. pastries from the pie and pastry bible
3. creme brulee
4. chocolate souffle
5. all that stuff i didn't get to last year (except for maybe the bacon-bacon cheesecake; i'm okay with never accomplishing that)


  1. Creme brulee should be next, because you get to buy the cool torch to go with it.

  2. yes! the torch is super cool.
