[The Godfather]

bake-2

Left to my own devices recently, I decided to whip up another side-business to entertain myself. Introducing Auntie Myrtle’s Bun In the Oven. So that means I’ve been baking a lot. And things have to be tested to make sure they taste okay (I adjust the recipes as I go) It’s for science. Just today I decided to throw together another batch of pumpkin bread to bring to a gathering later today. There will be five other people there, and as you can see from the photo, I made six loaves. Aren’t they pretty?

I’m very full.

[steve martin, The Jerk]

We have worked for a loooooong time to bring this baby together. So my very first blog is dedicated to the amazing guys at Every Angle Media: Josh, José and Michael. Put simply, they kick ass. If you look up tireless in the dictionary you will see their photos. I’m not kidding, go check, I’ll wait. …See?

I also need to add that I’m having flashbacks to the editorial column I used to write for my college newspaper (Boston University’s Free Press – known as The Freep). My column was called Aimless and I used to write it on my Mac Plus a first-generation Mac (and for those of you keeping score, that would be system software v 1.0 – on a floppy disc – no internal hard drive). And the simple idea that I could cut one thought from one paragraph and paste it into another made my heart sing. Well, that and the bagels from Bruegger’s in Kenmore Square. Back then I wrote about boys. And waitressing…

As the days pass and the sunny weather carries on here in LA I will post about all those things that catch my eye. And possibly waitressing… we’ll have to see how it plays out.

Happy 2010!!
