A Bit of Healthy Baking..

Last night’s class was a bit healthier. We baked Bran Muffins with walnuts (which are a great souce of Omega three’s) and raisins. They turned out fabulously… Both big and delicious!

But we didn’t stop there. We also baked Tea Biscuits with currants. Mine were huge and light… 🙂

Apple Cinnamon Pies… Yummy!!

I LOVE apple pie… and last night I made the most absolutely perfect apple pie  at culinary school. Well, if I do say so myself! 😉

It had a perfect golden brown flaky crust… w/ perfectly packed cinnamon apple slices… 
And boy-o-boy did it smell incredible.
And best of all.. it was super Yummy! (sigh)
Not bad for my first apple pie!

Happy New Year!!!… and all that jazz.. ;)

Okay okay.. so I am about 12 days late in wishing everyone a “Happy New Year”, but I still wanted to. 🙂

These past several weeks have flown by. I was so busy I didn’t have time to go online, let alone post anything on my blog. But now I am back and with some very cool news:
I have enrolled in George Brown College’s Culinary Program!!!

I am very excited and a bit intimidated at the same time.
I had my first class last night in the Baking Arts Program.
I have my full chef’s uniform (which I look cute in).. and I have still have to get all of my required tools for the program (the required items list was just given to us last night).. But I did learn to create pie dough from scratch. hahaha
Next week: Apple Pies!!
I’ll let you know how they turn out.

And yes.. as soon as I get a picture of myself in my chef’s uniform, I promise to post it on my blog!
