I've caved and started this thing, this means to destruction for my degree and my waist!

I have a KitchenAid mixer and limited counter-space. I have a deep and passionate love for butter. I am a firm believer that if people 100 years ago could make it themselves, then I can too, today. (One day I'll test this theory with pasta - I have no pasta-maker!)

I cook almost every day and bake almost every week. I bake all the bread my household consumes, and some that other households consume. Mine has only two members, so sometimes my frenzy exceeds our appetites!

I figure there's no real point in keeping this all to myself since the internet is here to facilitate the sharing of my kitchen space. I read a lot of cooking and food blogs, and I have no reason to believe that I can do it better, but I'd like a space to talk about cooking and eating and to show what I can do, however limited.

  1. Yay, food blog! I had no idea you have one. I keep planning to put recipes on my blog; currently am stymied by a household lack of camera. Pity. Also, a deep fear of my communist suicide machine of an oven.

    By the by, homemade pasta sans pasta maker isn't so bad: you just need a rolling pin, a fair bit o' flour, and some biceps (preferably on loan, lest you hurt yourself).

  2. i, too, have a deep and passionate love for butter.

    looking forward to reading/drooling over this!

  3. Hmmmmnnn, looks very good CastIronDarling! but where is your terrific recipe for banana/peanut-butter/lettuce and mayonaise sandwich on mutligrain bread?
    Its so terrific.
