New Years resolutions?

So for this New Years I made two resolutions: to join a gym and to learn to bake. I did join the gym and I've been going fairly regularly before this last month. I need to get back into it. Anthony and I did learn that we can't go to the gym together. Well, we can go together, but we can't work out together. I don't love him telling me how to do things and he doesn't love me constantly rolling my eyes at him.

Anyway, to the baking. I haven't really tried to do much with that. Last week I found a pretty cool baking blog called Tuesdays with Dorie. Every Tuesday the group bakes a different recipe from Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. To join the group you have to open your blog up to everyone at TWD and you have to bake at least twice a month from the book. I'm not sure how I feel about opening our adoption blog to that many people. For now I decided to bake what they are baking and just follow along. This week they are making the peppermint cream puff ring.

Of course, the cook in me can't help but change it up slightly. I'm making cream puffs because I think the ring will be too hard for us to eat. It just looks huge. Also I don't love mint so I'm not doing that. If Anthony is reading this he is rolling his eyes at me because we have so much mint in the garden and he is trying to get me to put it in everything.

I think I'll make the cream and to some of the cream I'll add green tea powder. We'll see how this goes.

Ooohh, the mint sounds like a great addition! I'd add some. Especially if you have fresh garden mint. --Dick Rickles
