New Years Day, I received a call asking for me to come up and bake a dessert for that night. A bit short notice, but I was up for the challenge. These bars are best cut small; they're rich, but delicious in small doses.

While I've been really busy getting busy for Christmas day, obviously I got a lot of baking done. While I didn't get to talk all of the pictures of everything I've done, here are a few pictures.. And even a recipe underneath the cut.

Merry Christmas ♥


Cookies have to start off somewhere.

Let me start out by saying thank you paradise and private_enemy for the gifts. Muy appreciated ♥

Next, I haven't exactly gotten to make as many cookies as I would have liked on this trip. While both of the girls I have been living with these past couple weeks are pretty cool, they didn't have flour or sugar.. Or anything to bake with. Or a mixer of any kind. However, they requested I make Peanut Butter Blossoms for a party they had last night.. So yesterday, I got my muscles into gear and got to it.


The ingredients.

The recipe and the cookies.Collapse )


These cookies were a huge hit at the party. Even one of my roommates, who doesn't really like cookies, loved 'em and couldn't keep out.

While traveling back to Oregon to graduate from WCI, it was decided that we needed to do some sight seeing. Along the way we went to see the Multnomah Falls. It was beautiful.

Tuesday was the first day of Autumn, and I felt this huge urge to bake with pumpkin. I went to the local grocery store, and bought some easy Pumpkin Pie Mix.. And then made cookies with it to celebrate.

If someone thought your baking would slow down once you got back home..

..They were wrong.


My boss at Horse Creek Deli & Bakery has had me do pretty much everything in his bakery department, and there's no complaints over here! I've enjoyed making cookies, pies, cakes, pastries, and even..


Cheesecake.

So this week in class we worked with sugar.

No, not the kind that you add to cakes. The kind that gets really hot, and you work with it.. With your hands.


This is my final project for school: a sugar show piece. It was hot to make (literally), but I love how it came out.

And so, tomorrow ends my culinary days here at Le Cordon Bleu. How time flies~ I have three more weeks of just general education classes before I head home for my externship. ♥

Braving weather temperatures at a record temperature highs of 105-107〫F, chocolate was melted, messed up, and made again. In the end, everything turned out great despite Mother Nature's curve ball. In our Candies class, we made truffles, caramels, fudge, brittle, toffee, and gummie chews.

I've definitely kept busy this week. Candies in the morning, and cooking at night. 6 am - 9 pm at school makes for a long day, but it's still been fun and insightful. I even got to grill in the cooking class. Something I can say I've never done before.
