Exciting News!

I have been given the fantastic opportunity to audition for a new baking show being produced by CBS. They’re doing auditions in Los Angeles on December 1 and I’m going to go and give it my best shot. It looks like they’re modeling it after The Great British Bake Off. I love that show, I’ve seen every episode.

Only now, I look at my blog and see things that are lacking because we’ve been working on recipes and website formatting.

Let’s face it, I’ve done a terrible job of keeping up with my blog.  But I’ve been baking.  This year has been very busy with the move from Texas to Southern California.  We purchased a home that was being built so we had to make lots of choices and now we have landscaping, painting, window coverings and so many little things to get set up.

I did unpack my kitchen first.  After all, it’s the most important room in the house.

Now I have family coming for Christmas.  I want to enjoy my time with them and still give them great meals. So, I’ve been baking ahead.  The muffins we had for breakfast this morning were Pumpkin Spice, Oatmeal Maple and Raspberry Streusel.  No, I didn’t get up and whip up three batches of muffins.  I’ve been working on filling my freezer for company.  Each day I make a batch or two of muffins, fill the silicone or foil muffin cups and freeze them before I bake them.  Then when I want a quick breakfast I take them out and put them in the oven at 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4 convection or 375°F/190°C/Gas Mark 5 conventional for about 22 minutes.

So, I’ll be updating my personal information on my web pages and keep an eye on my blog or even on the new CBS Baking Show.  I’m going to do my best at this audition to get on the show and bake my little heart out!
