This blog is an attempt to create a narrative of my experiences making all the recipes in the wonderful cookbook “Pastries” by the Standard Baking Company located in Portland Maine. And it will not be like the blog in "Julie/Julia" but I do hope it will be fun for me as well as you readers. My name is Gayle. I live in a 1920’s house in Gardiner, Maine. The kitchen doesn’t have an island or an “open concept”. Nothing much has changed since it was built except for wallpaper and paint. My appliances are roughly 25 years old and far from the high end styles you see on HGTV. My KitchenAid is 14 years old with so much use that I find it a wonder it still works. The stove and the refrigerator are over 25 years old. The blender is almost 50 years old and still working just fine. (My nephews gave me a larger size KitchenAid back a few Christmases ago making her the youngest appliance in the kitchen.)
