Some days I'm so tired it's all I can do to come home, make dinner, take some pictures, drink 1 or 2 glasses of wine, then head to bed. Despite this I know that what I'm doing is worth it so I keep charging forward.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be blogging about what I prepare in class each week. I'm gong to try to make these posts a little more picture intensive, and from time to time I'll post the recipes. Since this is the first week of the basic program we didn't do any baking.

This recipe and photos is courtesy of my dear friend, avid photographer and budding food stylist Laura L. I never met an apple tart I didn't love AND then you add rum. This is a no-fail hit! Thanks Laur for contributing to the blog.

I'm starting class on Saturday, and this time I'm gonna be baking. If you live in my area be prepared I'm going to need to get rid of A LOT of products. Let me know if you want me to send some your way.

Today, I got asked, if I ever made resolutions and my response was no, I don’t. I create plans, set measures of success, and execute on that plan. For 2013, I have a series of goals that I’d like to achieve with Olive and Ruby, and I’m starting now so that at the end of this year, I can see how much I’ve achieved.

2012 is almost over, and it has been an eventful year.There were so many highs that I can’t list them all, and there were several lows, which I’d prefer not to revisit. All of those experiences have changed me, for better or worse they’ve shaped me, stretched me, challenged me, and ultimately changed me.
