Do You Like To Cook?

Or more appropriately, do you like to bake? I like to think that I like to bake and that I'm good at it but in truth I don't do it often enough to really claim either hoped-for assertion. This may soon change as I have recently come across a new blog that I think I will like very much.

At first glance, though, I was not actually convinced that it was going to be the blog for me. This was because the most recent post posed this question: "What do you do with leftover cheesecake?"

First off, what kind of a person actually has leftover cheesecake (cheesecake is my favorite)? And second, if you do have leftover cheesecake (let's say you were hoarding it or something) then obviously the answer to that question is to eat it, stupid.

On getting past this silly, silly question I discovered a recipe that makes a really great argument for having leftover cheesecake--this argument involves chocolate (in fact the recipe looks so good that I believe it makes an argument for baking a cheesecake, scooping out the balls of cheesecake you need for the recipe, making the recipe, and then sitting down with the crust and whatever remains of the cheese portion of the cake while watching a dripping wet Viggo burst through the doors in LOTR, a dripping wet Colin emerge from a lake in P&P, or the perfectly dry kiss at the end of Anne of Avonlea over and over and over again).

Ok, all fantasies aside, I do really think this blog might be a keeper and not only because it has some great-looking recipes. But also because the author of the blog only posts about once a week. That is the perfect amount of postings for a site about recipes because I don't have time for anymore recipes than that and would eventually feel so bogged down by any more than that that I would sink down into a mass of tears for being the complete failure of the pretend baker that I am--that or delete the blog from my list of must reads.

So if after all the rambling above you are still interested in taking a look at this yummy blog, go here: Baked Perfection.

You are too funny!

Some of those recipes look really good.

I just made a batch of super-gooey chocolatey brownies the other day. They weren't nearly as good as the super-gooey chocolatey brownies we made that one summer I stayed with you, but they were pretty close. I should make those brownies sometime. I haven't made them since I left Boston, though it's a recipe I pass along as one of the best of my best.

Wow, that looks AMAZING. Definitely going to be trying out some of those recipes - thanks for sharing!

I must say-you are evil! I am a sucker for baked goods! Some of these look so tasty...I will have to put off the diet until next week!

Thanks for the tip! I'd much rather bake than cook any day. If only....

Jenny said...

Yes. I am a baker. But I've been closeting my desires to confect and drizzle oozey goodness over sweet baked-up delites because I'm trying to make it to another beach season without grossing people out and embarrassing my kids. Have any great blog sites for that?!

I lost your cheesecake line of thought at "dripping wet Viggo." Talk about yummy. You are such a fellow-geek. My fantasy novel may have an audience after all . . .

Leftover cheesecake?? I have to admit, I did forget about a cheesecake once and ended up throwing half of it away :(
Thanks for the great site...my thighs are all your fault!

Amanda--I need to make those brownies again!

Science Teacher Mommy--I'd read any book you write.

Sorry all about being a diet breaker.
