Upcoming Year of Baking

My friend, Jennifer, loves to cook and bake, and she is really good at it. We both recently got the Kama Sutra of baking, Baking: From My Home To Yours, by Dorie Greenspan, I am not nearly as an acomplished baker as Jennifer, but we joined a group together called Tuesdays with Dorie. It is a group of several hundred blogging bakers who cook the same recipe from Baking each week and post about it. I am really looking forward to this weekly adventure.

I have already made a couple recipes from the book and am already loving it. For Little E's birthday, I made a Tall and Creamy Cheesecake. For my work Christmas party I made Real Butterscotch Pudding with my boss's favorite scotch, Johnnie Walker Black Label. To remain in the group, we are supposed to make the assigned recipe at least two times a month. I am hoping to participate every week. Tomorrow's treat is a French Pear Tart. Pears are a favorite fruit at my house. I think my family will like this new baking adventure too.

I can't decide if I should just post my baking posts on this blog, or start a new blog for food stuff. For now I will put my food posts here.

Ooooh! I think you need to have special tasters, too. Katie and I volunteer...

Hmmm, would you say that if I told you I was thinking of naming the new blog "may contain cat hair"? Baking and cats do not mix, but my tart is in the oven.

MarySue,
You overstate, I'm not a better baker than you, by any means. I do bake a lot, but I still make mistakes and sometimes make things that just don't taste great. (Oh, and I still sometimes under/over bake things, too!)
And in my house it's more likely to be dog hair than cat hair!
