Dark Horse

I think I am giving the good cooks and bomb bakers at work a run for their money. It's awesome. In the beginning it was easy things like a fruit salad and spinach dip, both on-the-package recipes. They loved both but I didn't really do anything except chop and mix. Now I am doing the real work, cupcakes, cookies and other baked entrees from scratch, so I can accept the compliments readily since I feel I have truly earned them.

I even won over an ominvore today. I am bringing her a square of lasagna and the recipe tomorrow. I typed it out and added my own notes so it is funny, at least to me. I know I tend to overnote, but I overtalk, so it isn't much of a stretch.

Since I am cuckoo for cookbooks I might be picking up another one tomorrow. I am going to have to go through all of them and make a "best of" for quick reference. I am going to see which ones are in the library network that can be routed to my nearest branch too. Make the system work for you.

i have not read it. i looked at her kakes in the past but totally missed the boat on the zine until around the holidays when i couldn't order one, but now i can and i shall.

even our janky liberry is still a liberry and i love it.
