Who knew whoopie pies could cause such a commotion. Such lovely little treats...I suppose both Maine and Pennsylvania both want the credit for creating these gems. Trust me, I have sampled both and am not about to jump into the fray saying one is better than the other. What I do know is that everyone loves a whoopie pie. Whether it is something fancy like gingerbread or red velvet (can't quite figure out the hype) or a classic chocolate and vanilla; everyone is winning, duh.
I have been tossing around the idea of starting a food blog for quite some time. I love reading people's recipes, seeing the creative things they have made and getting ideas for different culinary (generally baking) adventure. I am going to give this a whirl to see how I can keep up with detailing my journey.
I am launching now for two very specific reasons, one, I am starting an online whoopie pie bakery. I have been trying out combinations, inspired by classic recipes and have had some good luck modifying them to make them a bit more my own. I also saw something today about a Bake Sale for Japan on Gluten Free Baking and Tomato Tart and I wanted to get involved.
So, here I am, all involved and such and feeling so sad for this country and hoping that my offering helps in some way.
Please come back to visit and comment and I hope that this becomes something fun.
