I have the most excellent news, I’m going to The Institute of Culinary Education to become a pastry chef! I start in July. I’m completely and totally excited about this. This has been a dream of mine for as far back as I can remember. And it just so happens we’re financially stable enough right now that I can do it. Plus, they offer classes that work with my busy mom schedule.
And here begins chapter 327 of this here blog. Stories to come, for sure!
Congratulations! This is awesome and wonderful – I remember you mentioning this dream a while ago, it it is so great that you and your family are now in a position to go for that dream. Excellent news, Michele, excellent. I look forward to lots of culinary stories…

I have a friend who went to school to be a pastry chef, I got great tips from her.
Good thing you’re running though! She said everyone in her class added about 25 lbs while in school,

Cool beans! Have a great time and enjoy doing something for you… although I am sure everyone else will greatly appreciate your “work” as well. (Me included as those recipes churn out!)
