Livin' in the Kitchen

Cover to Cover -“Chocolate and Vanilla”

Sometimes I have the attention span of a sugar-buzzed five year old at a birthday party. Things just tend to distract me. Which is why cooking through an entire cookbook has never seemed entirely possible to me.

But it’s on my bucketlist.

And I do love checks on my lists…

Which is why I’m currently baking through Gale Gand’s most recent pastry book, “Chocolate and Vanilla”! I’ve been interning for Gale since I was 15… she’s my pastry mama! Reading through the headnotes and the directions, I can almost hear her explaining the recipes to me.

I bake a couple of recipes out of Chocolate and Vanilla each school week. I tend to photograph the recipes the day after I make them because by the time I’m finished baking all the natural light is gone. Then I upload and post them in a photo album on Gale’s chef page called “Chocolate and Vanilla”! https://www.facebook.com/chefgalegand?ref=ts&fref=ts

22 recipes down and I’m still rolling. Come bake with me! Or come watch me bake. Either way, it’s sugar. It’s bound to be fun.
