Get Ready

New Obsession?, originally uploaded by razzieswirl.

I recently drug home my grandmothers sewing machine from a dusty unused room upstairs in my mothers house. Maybe this blog will morph into a sewing/craft/food blog? The only reason it hasn't thus far is because I'm not good enough at any of the above mentioned, except cooking, of course. I've been cooking/baking since I was 5 years old with grandmother (I have pictures to prove it, pretty damn cute ones too). So I guess I should give myself a little more time to practice becoming a good crafter, but I can be pretty impatient, I want to know how to make pretty things, and I want to know NOW!

Anywhoo, I was simply posting tonight because I will be baking up a frenzy in the kitchen tomorrow (Sunday). Get ready for Genoise with raspberry filling, Pound Cake Petit Fours with Orange Marmalade, Earl Grey Tea Cupcakes with Orange Buttercream, and last but surely not least, Pierre Herme's Lemon Cream Tartlets. I'm testing all these recipes for the Wonderland Party I'm planning, coming up in May. My plan was to do this all today but I ended up ditching my kitchen for a trip to Seattle to see the Bodies Exhibit (if you leave near the area, it's a must see, simply amazing stuff people).

So be prepared, I will be a bakin' and a shakin' all day tomorrow. I can't wait!
