My First Ever!!!

I can't believe I am doing this - I am blogging!!! Oh well, there is always the first time. I am no good at photographing; I am no good at English wording; I am no experienced at blogging. But I love baking. It can be a struggle deciding to bake or not to bake while there are work, house, family, piano, kids, husband, friends, and on and on. Finally, I decided that this is a place to record my on-going learning of baking and cooking and growing in many different ways.

I have learned from many bloggers who are far beyond me yet have shared so much with people like me, those who are Helen, Aran, April, and many more. My greatest appreciations go to them.

Thanks to dear friend P.-Y. for taking these pictures with her flowers. Oh yes, I am also no good at gardening, but she is. 

Like many others, I also have a bad habit of collection cook books. Dorie Greenspan's Desserts by Pierre Herme is my new love lately. I followed almost to the exact making this lemon tart. I also made some small tartlets but they were all gone to many happy stomachs before I could bring out the camera. I again need to thank Aran for pointing the right place to get those small tart rings. I love them. 

This will be it for the first shot. More later.
