wow, it all looks so delicious and the photos are just like from a cookbook!

I prefer salty (is it the right antonym to sweet?) to sweet so I don't bake much but this apple tarte tatin made me really proud:

From the oven...

oh that looks delicious! i love carmelized apples. oh yum.

so you prefer cooking to baking! That's cool! I'd love to see pictures of your creations. Smiler i started as a cooker, but now baking is my love. although once in a while i get the "nesting" bug and go on a cooking rampage.

they are little "baba au rums". they're like little sponge cakes soaked in rum syrup with creme patisserie filling with a slice of fruit to decorate them. Smiler sorry for the tiny pictures!

Well, I better start taking photographs of my food then Wink

I'm really suffering in my dorm now - one small pot, pan and a colander is everything I have here but the worst thing is that there's no fridge here... How can you cook for one when your every ingredient goes bad after a day Mad

Your pictures are gorgeous. Hmm food as art...

Maybe some of you expert bakers could help me out. (Haha this is me using your discussion for my own selfish purposes.) See, there's a tradition at my school for the AP Math students where they meet once a week to do review work together, and take turns bringing a homemade dessert. The rule is that each dessert has to be slightly more complicated than the first. My turn is next week, and the most recent dessert was an apple pie baked from scratch. Any suggestions for what I should make?

you can make a lemon meringue pie. Smiler meringue looks stunning when done correctly, and it is fairly difficult.

or what about tiramisu? you'd have to make it sans alcohol, but it would still be yummy. i quite enjoy creme brulee, but if you don't carmelize the sugar and eat shortly thereafter, it doesn't have the same crunch (think Amelie here). How many students are in your class that you would be cooking for?

Another idea...S'mores cupcakes. they are fairly labor intensive, but certainly delicious.

Appt: I'd go out of my mind. :\
