I did it!

Start a food blog that is. I have debating whether to start blogging about my baking and cooking escapades for ages and have always fallen back on the age old excuse "I'm not going to have enough time." I'm still not sure how much time I will be able to devote to this but I'll take it one step at a time. I have gotten so much pleasure from reading other people's food blogs, Kuidaore, Chubby Hubby and Dessert First, to name just a new, that I finally decided to bite the bullet. I have no illusions that I'll garner as wide an audience as they have but the fun for me will come from having an excuse to bake / cook more often and the opportunity to share my escapades with friends, family and whomever else wants to read about them.

So you're probably wondering "Who is this girl anyway?" Well, I think the name of my blog says it all - I'm just a girl with an enormous passion for food! I am also a baking hobbyist, something I try to indulge in as often as I can. I did a basic patisserie certificate at Cordon Bleu in Paris but I'm still trying to improve my skills everyday! In between my adventures in baking, I dabble in cooking since you can't eat sweets everyday, or so I've been told. To top this all off, I love trying new restaurants and what better place to do that than in London, my home of about 6 months now!

Before I sign off, I thought I'd share with you a picture of a crepe cake (a la Lady M's cafe in NYC) that I made recently. I hope to be back soon with my first real post!
