If you’re new to my blog or haven’t ever read my other blog http://www.hotelnomad.com (which will be closing down shortly) then I should start out by telling you that for a year I lived as a nomad. I had no permanent residence and lived in hotels and Airbnbs. The only reason I started using Airbnbs was so I could cook again because I was tired of eating out all the time. However, for any of you (which is probably all of you), you know how inconvenient and uncomfortable it is to cook in someone else’s house. Therefore, for one year, my cooking was quite limited. And I LOVE TO COOK.
Back in my younger years, I developed a passion for two things: Coffee and baking. I drank lots of coffee and learned how to bake but not to the extent that I’m learning now. In my early 20’s I wanted to own a coffeeshop but sadly now, nearly 20 years later I still have not accomplished that dream. But, I’ve begun the journey to make it happen. I’ve changed my focus on what I want and have a goal with a timeline in place. It feels good to be taking charge of that part of my dreams. As I pursue it, I want to share my bakes and recipes with you on here.
My recipes are designed for high altitude baking since I live in Colorado. In a future blog, I will write the conversions for regular vs. high altitude baking. For this into to my baking life, I’d like to show you the pictures of what I’ve made this week. The featured image is a Victoria Sponge.
