2014 Baking Challenges


It’s nice to look back on the year and reflect. It’s been a huge year for me too. After 11 years living in the UK I moved 3,500 miles away to Connecticut. It’s nice to look at what’s been accomplished and how far I’ve come but really the year is over and it’s time to move forward!

I strive to be different on this blog. If it’s the same as every other blog then why come and stop here? Last year I decided that I wanted to do something different. I wanted to show everyone that I’m so not perfect (not that I ever pretend I am). I ended 2012 with all the disastrous desserts that didn’t make it onto the blog (and my favorite leaning tower of cake).

This year I’m mixing it up again and writing down a few baking challenges for 2014. The idea is to continue to try new and exciting things. I’ve picked 3 things to try in 2014 (I have made plenty of pie crusts but not yet mastered this technique). Numbers 2 and 3 are pretty tough so just trying them is going to be fun.

1. Pie crust

2. Croissants

3. Souffle

What’s the one dish that you’ve always wanted to make yourself from scratch but we’re too afraid?

Happy New Year!

P.S You can read the traditional round ups I wrote in 2011 and 2010.
