I love to experiment with baking and try new things.  I once thought that I would enjoy being a pastry chef, but another blogger pointed out that working in a restaurant or a bakery really means doing the same thing over and over again, i.e. slicing fruit or tempering chocolate or making the same shortbread crust for the pies. I am not sure if I could handle all that monotony under all the pressure that exists in such a situation.  So I’ll stick with trying things out on my own. This blog helps me document it all and encourages me to keep going. I am not always good about posting everything that I make, but I will try to keep you all updated with what I am up to.

A note about the name of the blog. My husband, Rocker Dude (check out his radio show at www.rock4rookies.com), is being super-supportive and is encouraging me in everything, the only problem is that all he wants is a chocolate chip cookie – forget pies, cakes, bundts, brownies,  tarts, etc. just give him a cookie and he is happy.  When I proudly show off my latest creation, he looks at it and says, “Good job, now do we have anything to snack on in the house? You haven’t made chocolate chip cookies in so long.”  So I am writing this blog so that maybe other people can appreciate what I am doing.

My oldest daughter, the Little Rocker, is six years old and loves to help out, though she is her father’s daughter and will only eat chocolate chip cookies :(. I have hopes for my younger daughter, Squeaker. She is only two, but she has already decided that the world is her oyster.

Come join me and experiment too!

  1. I completely agree; about getting into blogging, wanting to go to culinary school, having a partner that just likes cookies, and substituting dairy-free options! There is nothing better than cooking. 🙂

  2. I can’t believe that I never noticed this blog before! I also have a kosher blog on WordPress, also do Daring Bakers challenges, and I also have gone many times to the Middlesex County Fair. I have a list of kosher bloggers on my site, and I have added your blog to the list.
