Two Things I am Not

1. I am not daring: I rarely make risky decisions, participate in outrageous acts, or step out of my comfort zone.
2. I am not a baker: okay, I make my mom's apple cake, and I make brownies (out of a box), but I don't really bake anything extraordinary.
.

.
and yet, last month I joined Daring Bakers (my name should be added to their blogroll soon!).

Why? Because I kept on seeing pictures of amazing desserts posted by the club's members on Tastespotting, and super cute Daring Bakers logos on many food blogs.

I decided to challenge myself and see if once a month I can successfully follow a complicated baking recipe.

You will have to wait till July 30th to find out what the challenge was and how I handled it (or did I?). Stay tuned.

I'm not daring or a baker either, but I have been thinking about joining as well. Hope it works for you and maybe you will see me on the blogroll in the future as well!

Hi, Esi.
The first challenge was stressful, but I'm glad I did it!
Check back on July 30th for the reveal :)

You have a great blog, btw!
