Welcome to my kitchen. This room serves as an online journal of my baking and occasional cooking attempts. I’ve always enjoyed baking but never got into it until I renovated my small humble kitchen the summer of 2009. Before this, the only baking I did was making a cheesecake in a toaster oven. I am self-taught through cookbooks, many many cooking blogs, and the vast internet. All the recipes in my kitchen are from these resources. I didn’t take any baking or cooking classes but I did take the Wilton Method® Decorating Basics Course at my local Michaels.
The kitchen was born in November 2010 even though I’ve been baking almost weekly after my kitchen renovation. So you can see it has long been delayed. I started taking pictures of food back around October 2007. I would take pictures of all foods that interests me at family gatherings, when dining out, or on vacations. My family, friends, and those around always thought I was weird when doing so. In the early days of my baking, I would only take pictures of the final product. As I consider myself still a beginner, I tend to focus on following the directions in the recipe and forget to stop to take pictures. As I progress, I will try to take more pictures during my baking steps.
The focus of my baking so far has been on cakes. I hope to expand my kitchen to different types of dessert as well as other courses as time progresses. Speaking of time, God has blessed me with a full-time job so I will be entering the kitchen only weekly (or whenever I prepare something) to update. I hope you’ll enjoy your visit in my kitchen.
