(Almost authentic) Whoopie pies


I'm a sucker for original, authentic recipes. I think its the inner conformist in me - I have to use the 'right' recipe. But, of course, when it comes to baking there are so so SOOO many versions of everything that it is hard to work out what is 'authentic' anyway. I keep telling myself that its okay, as long as the recipe tastes good, but it doesn't stop me from doing a whole heap of googling everytime I want to try something new.

It's a scary (blogging) world out there...

Well, I finally did it. I got myself a blog. We'll see how this goes... hopefully I'll last longer than a week.

A couple of years ago my kitchen expertise extended to toast and the occasional packet cake mix (but not icing). Browning mince stressed me out and I couldn't boil an egg (well, I could boil it but I had no idea when to pull it out). Then I became a stay at home mum and decided it wasn't fair to keep expecting Mr. P. to keep cooking dinner after work. Cue Masterchef and suddenly I had a new and rather unexpected interest in cooking. I'm definitely better in the kitchen now but I have a long way to go (those eggs still give me trouble).

I've been addicted to reading blogs for a while now and I love how much I have learned just by reading about other people's adventures in the kitchen. So I'm starting a cooking blog to hopefully learn as much as I possibly can, and have some fun along the way. Let's see where this road leads, shall we? Hopefully it won't be as scary as I think.
