look what we found!

Ummm yup! How absolutely beautiful is she??!! It has been in the house mere minutes and we have had all the burners, the broiler, and the stove lit, beets are boiling and of course:

the inaugural upside down chocolate pudding cake. WHICH, I might add, cooked perfectly and evenly. Really! We have officially moved out of 1923 into the land of professional cooking appliances. I cannot wait for the first loaf of bread. Oh and did I mention it fits three FULL sheet pans? (You can be jealous now).

a little taste of Tartine

I spent most my day yesterday in Tartine heaven. Watching videos viewing their new book, drooling over their bread and being completely inspired. Tartine is a bakery to envy. Owned and operated by husband and wife team Elizabeth and Chad who have cultivated a little pastry mecca in San Francisco. I have been once and watched as the line grew around the building as the day progressed and lasted, I am sure, until their doors have closed. Just felt like sharing what inspired me yesterday in the land of bread and pastry. Thank you Tartine.
