My First Blog Posting!

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to my first blog posting. First, let me introduce myself so you can get to know me a little better. My name is Mehgan (and yes, it's spelled that way, lol) and I'm from the great Pacific Northwest. I'm currently serving in the U.S. military, but will be getting out next summer to pursue an education in the Culinary Arts. I have a passion for cooking and baking, with baking being my strong suit.

Ever since I can remember, I've had a knack for cooking. As I've told my mother and sister, it is very therapeutic experience for me. All that chopping and stirring and mixing. I love it!

I don't have any pictures from last night with me here at work, but trust me, I did a heckuva lot of cooking last night. I made homemade chicken noodle soup, Amish sweet bread and Molasses cookies. I was literally in my kitchen from the time I got home from work, to the time I went to bed last night. I wasn't able to cook at all on Sunday, so I guess you could say I was making up for lost time. I will post photos later on this evening when I get home from work.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you folks later!

P.S. At the top there's a shot of one of a really tasty fresh fruit tart I made on Memorial Day (it last about four seconds after I pulled it out of the fridge!) The recipe can be found here: http://http//www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_32767,00.html?rsrc=search

It turned out divine, even though I had some trouble with the crust, since I wasn't using an "official" tart pan... which is something I need to get.

Way to go, Mehgan! The tart looks lovely, I would have jumped in on that too.

I totally agree with you about cooking. I find it to be very relaxing (except when I'm cussing at cakes) and definitely rewarding. Good luck and have fun!
