I know I have been MIA for a while but let me tell you I have not been lying down on the job - during Easter break I made a trip home back to Newfoundland for my bridal shower, where the theme was "Desserts for Dani." We had cake, cookies, cheesecakes, bars, and cupcakes - but I didn't get any good photos, sorry!
While I was on my little trip the folks from The Prepared Pantry contacted me about a great e-book they offer via their website. I should tell you I have been looking for a good how-to baking book for quite some time now - you know, not just a collection of recipes but a book that tells me the who, what, when, where, why, and how of baking. I have found some in bookstores, but am far too frugal to spend $75 on any book. That's why when I got this e-mail I signed up right away. Now, once a week I get a chapter e-mailed to me until I eventually have collected all 250 pages. I am currently on Chp 3 and have found the information very useful and explanatory. Sign up right now!
After I signed up I browsed through their website and found they offer a lot of neat products. Mainly they sell mixes, but you will also find herbs, spices, and tools as well. I have found a dozen or more items I wouldn't mind having, and have bookmarked them all for my fiance to have a look at (hint hint).
I hope you find this site as intersting as I did, and please, let me know if you have found any other similar places I might enjoy :)
