I have three goals this fall: 1) Become a hockey fan (obviously Blackhawks) 2) Become a football fan (Da Bears – I’m almost there with my cute vintage Bears leather purse) 3) Learn how to bake

You might think number three should be pretty simple but I really struggle following directions. Typically I read a recipe and just throw all the ingredients into one bowl and mix together. But soon I realized there’s actually chemistry involved in baking…

My first fall 2010 baking adventure was Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. I made them for my Glee Tuesday dinner parties. Little background: every Tuesday my gal pal Spohn hosts Glee dinner parties with her husband B-Zak, BFF Ashley, cousin Adam and me.

Key learning: reading directions is a really great start because they were tasty! I also brought in a batch for my fellow Zapwater folks and they loved them! Although there is a slight chance everyone was lying to me.

If you’re interested in making your own Pumpkin Whoopie Pies you can get the recipe here.
