We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Tuesdays With Dorie: Baking With Julia
I was listening to an NPR podcast the other evening and it was about Tuesdays With Dorie. Here is a brief summary about the program from NPR:
New Year's resolutions have notoriously short lifetimes, but for a blogger in Pittsburgh named Laurie Woodward, a promise to herself became an Internet sensation.
Woodward was inspired to bake one recipe each week from Dorie Greenspan's popular cookbook Baking From My Home To Yours. And she found plenty of company — more than 100 bakers decided to take up the challenge with her. Every week, they made a recipe and posted their cooking stories to the online community Tuesdays with Dorie.
After four years and more than 370 recipes baked and dissected, Tuesdays with Dorie's first chapter ended in December 2011 — when the online group polished off every one of the recipes from Baking From My Home To Yours.
Cookbook author Dorie Greenspan joins NPR's Neal Conan to talk about baking and the online community she inspired.
Well I became so inspired from the podcast that I am now a member of the Tuesdays With Dorie: Baking With Julie. Currently 201 members have been accepted.
Two recipes from the Baking with Julie cookbook will be posted per month and members will be required to bake at least one. Stay tuned for pictures and postings of my creations. I am thinking of making the chocolate tarts for February. I am not really into white bread which is the other recipe. Hopefully I will be able to use some of the items from the vegetable garden in the recipes that are chosen in the future..
