Hi, I'm E.J. -- Yes, initials, E.J. -- I'm sure at some point I will tell you what it stands for. *insert cringe eyes here*
I happened upon a love of baking, and it has become a much-loved hobby. I am not a professional baker, nor have I taken any culinary or baking classes, but baking has brought a certain much-needed form of serenity and therapy to my life. Being born with many creative bones in my body, I had usually kept to the drawing and painting side of art, until one day, after binge-watching Cake Boss, I decided to put on my proverbial cape and jump right in! I made a cake from scratch and covered it in a homemade fondant as well - all for my husband's 40th birthday!
I grew up and still live in Texas where our dreams are as big as our hair-dos, and 'Yes ma'am' and 'Y'all' are all babies' first words. I also grew up watching my Nana make 6-7 dozen homemade flour tortillas every Saturday as well as making all of her baked goods from her very private stash of scratch recipes.
About the Blog
I am in the process of creating a blog out of a sheer obsession for journaling. In a mind where an abundance of thoughts, ideas, and ramblings of utter nonsense seem to abide, I figured why not bring a few people into my madness and hope someone out there can relate from time to time!
I hope to include some sweet recipes, a few savoury recipes, pictures, baking or cooking stories, and maybe some silly life things like having an empty nest, or those times mischief and misfortune seem to follow me and my sisters around in public when we are trying to mind our own business!
At any rate...see you around in my insanity! :)
