It's probably pretty obvious from most of my posts that I love to cook. And while I like to bake, there is so much more precision and accuracy that is needed, my baked goods never seem to come out right.
Enter the world of "continuing education." Baking classes! My friends Meghan, Brooke and (fellow blogger) Brynn signed up for baking classes.
Our first three hour class was an intro and our latest class was pies. This was my first attempt at making a pie crust (and the tricky lattice topping" but I think our blueberry pie was a success for a first attempt!

Yeast recipes and cakes (including butter cream frosting) are next on the agenda!
Speaking of cakes - Nick and I decided to fast forward the tradition of saving the top layer of wedding cake for the 1 year anniversary and dove into it last weekend when we did dinner at my parents! (Yes, that is the University of Washington Huskies mascot cake...we are big fans!)
