Just the Beginning

My mother is a pretty good baker and taught me how to read a recipe when I was very young.  I have always wondered if the reason she spent all the time teaching me to read a recipe and bake was the she new that in the long run it would save her.  Once I knew how to make cookies she never had to do it again!  If I asked for cookies she would just tell me to make them myself.  As I have grown up I found that I really enjoy baking, mostly because I love sweets.  Below are some of the things I have made and actually taken pictures of and if you notice, I am a pretty rotten photographer.

These German cookies are awesome, they take a little time but are worth it! 

This is also a German desert, I filled this one with peaches and it was awesome! 

German Black Forest Torte 
You might have noticed that I have a thing for German deserts, after living there for a few years I kind of got hooked on them.  This cake comes from an older German recipe book that is fantastic. 

I hope you can forgive the poor photo, it was at a party and I got bumped.

Chocolate Raspberry Cake


I know that Jam is not a desert, however this Strawberry Rhubarb jam I made is fantastic!
