Has it really been over 2 months since I wrote on here!? Time just flies…
I do have a few new things in my life. Number 1 amazing thing is that I found a new job. This is really a dream job for me and I am so excited to be there. I am the Pastry Chef for 3 restaurants and a food truck! It is just part time but I am ok with that. I get 2 full days of making Crème Brulee, Ice Creams and a huge list of other fancy things. I am still a little timid in bringing in new recipes but I know that will come. Right now I am just so thankful to be so excited to be a Pastry Chef.
Another change is that I left my other job. I was a cook at an assisted living home. There were a few things I really liked about the job but the things I didn’t like outweighed them all. Last week was my last day and it feels really good to be going in a new direction.
So, what am I going to be doing with myself, you may ask. Well….I am wanting to really throw myself into my flipping for a few days a week and the rest of my time I want to put into my new job and baking. I have been doing some thinking about even getting some certifications or classes to really advance my baking skills. I am not sure where that is going to lead but its exciting to think about.
One more quick thing to share with you. Last month at my new job I needed to create my first dessert for a special dinner. This is what I made.
It is a Cinnamon Sugar Shortbread “Tostada”, Mascarpone Cream, Grilled Cyan Pepper Peaches and a Candied Pecan Crumble. It came together splendidly! I also introduced myself and my dessert to the crowd. It was quite a night for me and really felt like I was on track to doing what I was meant to do all along. Isn’t that what we all look for?
