Kitchen Day 1: Cookies!

Tuesday was our first day officially baking for ourselves in the kitchen. We had watched as Chef Katie demonstrated her procedure making chocolate chip cookies. Most cookies are made using the creaming method, which is a huge fundamental concept that we would definitely need to have perfected by the end of our first week. I've been really careful not to eat much of anything that we bake. I'd say I am painfully aware of the consequences, so I'm doing my best to keep myself in check. I'm happy to report that I lost an additional 2 pounds during my first week of classes. Maybe this pastry thing can work in favor of my health after all.

Everyone in the class made the same thing that day, chocolate chip cookies, and oatmeal raisin cookies. Brooke and my cookies came out perfect and delicious if I do say so myself. I don't have any pictures of those, but I promise I will remember to take pictures of the rest of the things I'll be baking. More to follow!

Saving the world, one cookie at a time,
