Is this introduction half-baked, or what?

A slightly belated introductory post, and confession of sorts.  For months (maybe over a year), I've been waffling over whether to start a blog, what it could be about, blah, blah, bitty blah.  I'm not sure what pushed me over the edge (maybe it was the new batteries in my digital camera), but I finally decided that my rusty writing skills were only getting rustier, and that journalism diploma (circa 1994) somewhere in the basement was only getting dustier. Look at that, a baking pun and a rhyme all in the first paragraph. Don't get too excited.

Since my regular job description includes mother of three, weekday chef, lunch packer, homework helper, chauffeur, dishwasher unloader and laundry folder, I need a side job that allows me to work at home with Yo Gabba Gabba! in the background.  It would be great if I could sell a cake or two, but at least I can start learning more about this internet thing and put something on my resume more recent than 2003.

So, generally, I intend to focus on baking at home.  Maybe I'll share a recipe once in a while.  Maybe I'll veer off on unknown tangents.  But I'm looking forward to the conversation, which is the best part about blogging, I think.  Comment away, people!  I'm already thrilled to have four followers, even if two of them are family and one is my best friend.  Gotta start somewhere.

And now, I need to go to toddler story time at the library.  I'll be back as soon as I've baked something yummy.  (Suggestions are welcome.  Someone mentioned pie, so I'll definitely get around to that soon.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner!)

Coming soon: Granola, granola bars, crunchy granola...
