Dear Fellow Bakers,
this blog is two weeks old today and i'm thrilled to report that it has generated a huge number of responses and questions. reading them is so fun and fascinating i can easily see myself sitting "chained" to the computer with an i.v. (and the works)--unable and unwilling to tear myself away! of course this isn't going to be possible so i apologize that it may take a while to respond--especially around holiday time when everyone who ever bakes at all is baking NOW! i'll do the best i can to keep up.
imagine how frustrating it has been this past week when i experienced an untimely computer hard drive crash and was unable to view or respond at all!!! but i'm back in action with an improved system.
just one thing to keep in mind: while i will be sharing recipes from time to time that i think will be of interest, the purpose of this blog is not to dispense recipes on request. that in itself would be a full-time job! of course feel free to ask me if a recipe you are interested in is in one of my four "in print" books and i'll be happy to direct you to it.
Happy Holidays and Baking!
P.S. my 91 year old dad is coming down from up-state n.y. for thanksgiving weekend. his one request: cherry pie. i always have sour cherries in the freezer waiting for just such occasions! and this year was one of the most flavorful harvests ever so i froze enough for 4 pies. but for family thanksgiving day it will be something more seasonal and a touch more traditional: pumpkin cake with caramel silk meringue buttercream (both recipes in the cake bible)
