As you already know, I really enjoy baking. Not sure which I love more: the process of baking, or the eating of it... I suppose it's pretty close, with the scales tipping a wee bit more to the eating side.
As an early birthday present my sister got me this cook book called Baking Illustrated. I think I'm in love. I have yet to bake anything, because there are just to many recipes to choose from. Although, I think my first attempt will be some homemade croissants. The past few days I've been just sitting down and reading it like a normal book, because along with all the wonderful recipes are tips upon tips for better baking. I'm starting to feel so smart! There's even troubleshooting to tell you what you did wrong if a certain recipe doesn't turn out... ahem... not like I'd ever need it... It's like a baking owner's manual. Buy it 'foo!

- Welcome to Em's world. I am a stay at home/ work at home (when the odd job presents itself) mom. I have the privilege to spend every single day with my sweet/crazy 5 yr. old daughter, Mini M. and my little man, Baby W. who was born May 3rd. I can't forget the best part of my life- my hub. C.N., who happens to be the sweetest, funniest fella alive. We have been married almost 6 years. So that's me and my fam.
