I got the movie Julie and Julia for Christmas and it got me thinking! I can bake... anything... and I bake 7 days a week. But cooking scares me to death. When I worked in a professional kitchen, I could work any station needed, but in the last 7 years since I have been just baking, I have lost the touch and confidence needed to cook. So... Julie and Julia inspired me to relearn the art of cooking!!! I am not going to cook Julia Child's cookbook, although I think that would be amazing. I am a southern girl, with southern roots and southern values. So I am going to start with Paula Deens cookbook Kitchen Classics.
I own a Specialty Bakery business, called Special Cakes by Sara, so I know how to bake, but I am really excited to bake her desserts. I love the use of BUTTER! I hope to get my 14 year old daughter involved in cooking as well. This should be an experience that will be memorable for ever.
