I did it!

So after having dinner at Jeremy and Jackie's house on Saturday night - I was inspired to try and make an apple pie. Jackie's was so incredibly delicious and looked just beautiful! Last night we went to visit nana and papa and picked a whole bunch of apples from their tree. Today, with Gavin's help, we baked - it's not always the best to try something for the first time with a three year old helping - but we managed. I made a total mess of my kitchen and Gav and I were covered in flour - but in the end I have 2 somewhat pretty pies - I hope they taste good!
I've also been reading "Julie and Julia" where she sets out to master Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." I have now been inspired to learn how to cook. I'm determined to figure it out - so I'm going to make menus, use new recipes and see if I can get my family to eat anything that I make - I'll keep you updated!
