Hi, I'm Jenn!

I started this appendage to my regular blog in anticipation of Bake 52, which will kick-off in January 2012.  In the meantime, I thought I’d post some of the everyday recipes that I attempt.

It would be 100% safe to say that I’m NOT a foodie.  In fact, I’m probably one of the pickiest eaters you’ll ever meet and, because of that, I don’t even enjoy cooking very much….there’s not much pleasure in slaving over a meal that you won’t eat.

When I had kids, I promised myself that I wouldn’t allow them to grow up into the same kind of eater I am, and I’ve made an effort to expose them to things that I would never eat myself (like vegetables).  So far, they have been willing subjects and have grown accustomed to the phrase “eat it anyway” when it comes to things they claim to not like.  As for me….I’ve yet to be reformed.  Maybe someday….

In spite of my sweet tooth, baking has never really called my name.  I make the occasional batch of cookies, which often turn out flat and hard, but beyond that, I don’t bake much.  I wavered a bit after being asked to join Bake 52, but I thought participating in an online baking group would benefit me in two ways:  First, I might actually learn a few new things and second, having baked goods around on a weekly basis will motivate me to continue going to the gym!
