    My favorite thing in the realm of baking is trying things the old-fashioned (and usually, the hard) way. I love history and baking this way is a great way to be in touch with the past!

    I have loved baking since I was little. I love trying out new recipes and gadgets. Making family passed-down recipes is also a favorite.

    I love desserts so much that I usually give up the meals I plan on eating if there is cake or any other baked good lying around. I can eat an entire frosted cake easily, and it is so worth it : ).

    I have a weakness for pie crusts and cat paws. I celebrate surprise unbirthdays and like nothing more than to send secret presents in the mail.

    Sara on 5 November 11th, 2008 1:01 pm

    I found your blog while researching pastry arts programs (hopefully starting next semester already!). I love to make bread (Joan Nathan’s challah is my favorite too!) and I’m not allowed to show up to birthdays without my brownies in hand.

    I started truly baking in college, as stress relief, which is really funny considering that my mom finds baking to be one of the more stressful things in life. I still bake but now more for fun than for the stress relief. As a trained scientist I love how baking is just another application of science. 🙂

    As a student in vet school who’s training for a marathon, cooking and baking is just about the only truly decadent thing I have time for anymore–but I wouldn’t have it any other way! (Nor would my classmates, who act as my test kitchen every week.)

    I’m in college, majoring in clinical nutrition and human development. I love to cook and bake, but I HATE most sweets. I’m more into salt and cheese than sugar or chocolate. But since I love to bake and don’t like to eat what I bake, it turns out well for the people around me.
    I have always wanted to make brioche but it seems so… intimidating.

    kelsey on 9 November 11th, 2008 1:37 pm

    I am about to have my first child, and I have gestational diabetes, so I am VERY excited to be able to eat bread, and sweets again!

    Tiffany on 10 November 11th, 2008 1:41 pm

    I’m pregnant with #3, and my oldest is almost 16. So I bake. It keeps the angst from taking over 🙂

    If I could go back in time I would go to culinary school…I cant deceide if I enjoy cooking food or baking more!

    Samantha from Maine on 12 November 11th, 2008 2:25 pm

    I am a cooking addict cooking mostly bistro type meals. I am hoping to branch into baking more this winter. I am a newlywed, married one month today!

    Morgan on 13 November 11th, 2008 2:31 pm

    I love to bake in masses, but my husband isn’t a fan of anything fancy or unusual. So I bake my little heart out only to give away the final product to friends and neighbors.

    Nancy on 14 November 11th, 2008 2:57 pm

    My first entry into the baking world was when my Uncle Willis would “hire” me to bake his wife’s birthday cakes! I loved making them very special! He was always so sweet to me and always overpaid me for my efforts.

    Rachel on 15 November 11th, 2008 3:17 pm

    My favorite thing to bake is just simple shortbread.

    And I’m excited to teach myself candymaking this holiday season – starting with caramels. Mmmm.

    Merav on 16 November 11th, 2008 4:01 pm

    I speak five languages and I’m currently learning a sixth.

    …and I love to bake, of course! 🙂

    ren on 17 November 11th, 2008 5:03 pm

    i love to make bread but brioche kind of scares me. if i buy it, i can pretend i don’t know how much butter goes into it, but when i make it i am faced with the cold, hard (or possibly room-temperature) truth and i feel so guilty. until it’s baked, and then i feel like eating it!

    Haley on 18 November 11th, 2008 5:23 pm

    I spent 4 years of my life earning a degree in philosphy, and now I am currently enrolled in pastry school. I like to claim that I spent thousands of dollars on a college education so that I could think really hard and make a well educated decision on what I wanted to do with the rest of my life 🙂 I think it paid off…

    Jodith on 19 November 11th, 2008 5:24 pm

    Something about me, huh….I have 3 dogs (all dachshunds) and 2 cats. What can I say, I like animals.

    Ammy on 20 November 11th, 2008 6:44 pm

    I have a 2 year old daughter, who’s first birthday cake was my first real expidition into the baking and decorating world – since then i’ve been obsessed with baking and cake decorating! Funtimes.

    Ms.Z on 21 November 11th, 2008 7:24 pm

    I am a overworked graduate student in the biological sciences. Reading food blogs makes me feel like a sane, normal person…. and it’s a lot healthier than baking/cooking everything I see then eating it in one sitting!

    Jenifer on 22 November 11th, 2008 7:38 pm

    Let’s see: you already know where I live….ummmmm…I never win these contests and I don’t expected to win this time.

    Emily Drew on 23 November 11th, 2008 8:30 pm

    I’m a twin; my twin sister had twins – as you might have guessed, I’m not having kids. 😉 Instead, I spend my time collecting cookbooks and reading them as if they were thrillers, marking recipes to try, and forcing my housemates to enjoy the spoils!

    Jess on 24 November 11th, 2008 9:29 pm

    I tend to do really simple baking when I’m alone, but when my boyfriend is around we test out new recipes!

    Hallie on 25 November 12th, 2008 9:18 am

    I’m hallie and I can’t eat chocolate but most of the cookies i love to make have chocolate in them and I have to past them out to taste testers to let me know if they are good or not. My boyfriend cannot be trusted he likes everything. 🙂

    Rachel on 26 November 12th, 2008 11:48 am

    I interned as a chef in Tuscany, ITALY!!!!

    Jennifer on 27 November 12th, 2008 12:54 pm

    Let’s see.. I have two kids, live in Central Illinois. I bake a lot, mainly cookies. I work for a small non-profit that provides services to migrant families in IL and TX and really love my job.

    Rebecca on 28 November 12th, 2008 1:44 pm

    Love to cook, love to eat, love to read food blogs.

    jami on 29 November 12th, 2008 2:34 pm

    I have been wanting to try some of the recipes in the book my SIL got me, but I haven’t had two weeks uninterrupted to make sourdough starter. Maybe I can start tonight.

    And I’m an Aquarius, and I have green eyes, and I love long walks on the beach.

    deb on 30 November 12th, 2008 7:15 pm

    I am a food blog addict , mom to 4 and a baker at heart. Children are my lifes work.

    Lisa on 31 November 12th, 2008 7:16 pm

    I am REALLY bad at mailing things. Really.

    Nancy on 32 November 12th, 2008 8:08 pm

    One time I spent two days baking and decorating Christmas cookies for my friends only to receive half-hearted gratitute from them, so that scarred me from baking for a few years… but now I’m back, baking for people who love the things i make… hahahaha

    Emily on 33 November 12th, 2008 9:40 pm

    I love to bake. My favorites are cookies and banana bread. I have three little boys (4, 2, and 8 months) two of which love to help me, (It’s only a matter of time till it is all 3) which is why I usually stick to the simple stuff. My secret desire is to train them into chef’s. Or musicians, rock and roll musicians. Either way I could be happy.

    Cheryl on 34 November 13th, 2008 12:00 pm

    I found your blog via justjenn, and I wish that you posted more often. I love your recipes!

    and I wear shoe size 10.

    Aislinn on 35 November 13th, 2008 12:02 pm

    I grew up in a baking and cooking challenged house. The family joke was always, if it smells like smoke then dinner’s done. To this day my mother wonders where I got my knack for and love of baking. I consider it my zen. While some people read a book to relax, I immediately rush to the grocery store to pick up ingredients for a new recipe I want to try and spend my evenings in the kitchen.

    Misty on 36 November 13th, 2008 4:08 pm

    I love your website and I love to bake – pretty much anything sweet! I have 3 small kids and a husband who love to eat all the experiments! Thanks for all the great ideas!

    Debbie on 37 November 13th, 2008 6:40 pm

    I love my Kitchen Aid Pro Model and i enjoy using it for cookies, cakes, pizza dough and homemade ravioli with the pasta attachment.

    Baking is fun and so great to share with others.

    Hilary on 38 November 14th, 2008 10:14 am

    I have loved baking for as long as I can remember. Growing up and into most of my adult life I had sever self esteem issues. After a long day of being beaten down at work I come home and bake something which relaxes me and then I get the self esteem boost when people tell me how good my baked goods are. When people come over to our house they head straight to the cookie jar and if it’s empty they start loking for pie or cake plates. I love that!

    Amy on 39 November 14th, 2008 10:44 am

    My favorite television show is It’s Sunny in Philadelphia.

    Kristen on 40 November 16th, 2008 4:36 pm

    I’m (not-so) secretly intimidated by the idea of making my own pie crust. Ya know, the pressure of it being flakey yet solid, the pre-baking versus not – tried it once, and I’m not ready to go there again yet.

    I’m also a really big dork and I’m totally fine with that. 😀

    Shelly on 41 November 16th, 2008 5:31 pm

    I got my love of baking from my mom, who made things mostly from mixes! But she was great at decorating cakes, and I learned a lot from her about how to swirl and frost.

    Jonnie Hartling on 42 November 16th, 2008 10:54 pm

    I am from Edmonton Canada. I love baking but am not very good at it. I burn thigs alot, but my family still eats it to make me feel better.

    Kelly on 43 November 17th, 2008 5:21 pm

    Last year I bought a 60-year-old house with a kitchen that had never been renovated. Then I convinced my now-husband to help me re-build the kitchen, ostensibly to improve the value and functionality of our home…. but it was just as much because I had no counter space to bake and no cabinet space to store all my baking accessories.

    I got free manual labor, but he gets delicious baked goods, so I say we both win

    Chris on 44 November 17th, 2008 7:25 pm

    I have a huge sweet tooth, carbs are definitely my downfall, especially breads with sweet filling

    Monica on 45 November 18th, 2008 9:07 am

    I love to cook & read food blogs. I have 3 kids that are picky so it makes cooking very challenging.

    Marsha on 46 November 19th, 2008 6:05 am

    I love to bake. With 2 daughters raised I’ve discovered that only one of them got the cooking gene! I grew up on a farm with grandmothers and a mom who baked a lot, especially at harvest time!

    Molly on 47 November 19th, 2008 6:43 pm

    Newly married… my fantastic husband let me use all of our Macy’s wedding gift cards to buy a Kitchen Aid Mixer. Now THAT’s a keeper.

    Lev on 48 November 20th, 2008 6:54 pm

    I’m a college Sophomore living in a dorm, but I try to bake something for my friends at least once a week. The very first thing I baked after moving in was brioche (I used a muffin pan 🙂 ).

    Michelle on 49 November 22nd, 2008 9:13 pm

    I taught 1st graders this week what a whisk is and we made instant pudding as part of a How To unit! I learned about cooking & baking early on in life and am so glad to pass it on to another generation.

    Jenn on 50 November 23rd, 2008 6:38 am

    I love to read cookbooks. I think I will try the recipes but mostly I just read them.

    Cecilia on 51 November 23rd, 2008 8:42 am

    About me? let me see.. I used to love to bake. But no one besides me liked baked goods. So I stopped to avoid eating it all myself. But my DH is a pastry chef now. Oh the irony…
