The Challenge

I recently came up with an idea, not an original idea but a good one all the same, to make a dessert every weekend and chronicle the experience with this blog. The challenge will begin this coming weekend and end 6 months later on the weekend of August 13th. I will take the recipes from everywhere and anywhere, cookbooks, the internet, the paper, anywhere I can find one that interests me. I will make cakes, tarts, cookies, all types of baked goods. My hope is that during this time I will learn lots about baking, and most importantly, have fun. 

In order to make sure my boyfriend and I don't gain a gazillion pounds from eating whole cakes and pies each week, I will be sharing these treats with my closest friends and invite them to  drop by on Sundays and indulge. 

My first, very important assignment is to make a Valentines Day dessert for my boyfriend who happens to be a chocoholic, so I'm spending my time combing through recipes to find the absolute perfect chocolate dessert for this special day. 

I hope you'll enjoy reading about my successes and challenges as I try to unleash the baker within.
