It’s been some time now that I have become obsessed with baking…I find it very therapeutic.  And to be totally honest I usually have only a bite of whatever it I bake, mostly because I don’t really have much of a sweet tooth.  Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate cake as much as the next 30something year old gal….but most often then not I’ll tend to reach for a bag of Doritos instead.

OK, I’m getting a little off track here, yes back to baking.  I find most of my recipes on-line, and that’s when I discovered Dorie Greenspan and wondered where she has been all my life.  I tried a few recipes of hers and loved them, they are so easy to follow and the result is always a winner.  I finally decided to purchase Dorie’s book; Baking: From my Home to Yours .

Well I have finally entered the blogging world.  I’m not sure what has taken me so long…ah yes the fear of having to commit.

Once I finally was able to convince myself that I can do this, I quickly realized that I did not know the first thing on how to set up a blog.  The biggest hurdle…coming up with a name.  Sure I had so many great names, but of course most were taken. I spent hours thinking of a name, even recruiting my husband’s help.  He was able to come up with some pretty creative names…unfortunately not creative enough (I still love you honey!)  Then tonight while surfing the net for a biscotti recipe the name came to me, and it was available.  So here I am. 

Please stay tuned…
