Inspiration Begins in the Kitchen

It all started one rainy afternoon. I was in the kitchen, in the middle of making a carrot cake and an ice-box cake when I had a moment of divine inspiration: "Why not start a blog to chronicle my hobby of cooking?"

After the carrot cake was iced with lemon-zest-cream cheese frosting, I got to thinking. The blog wouldn't be a daily journal loaded with pictures and recipes that are filled with healthy, hard-to-find, unappetizing ingredients. I am not vegetarian nor do I plan to bake entirely with organic foods. My idea was to select the very best dessert recipes that I've made or want to try and post one a week here with a few modest pictures. Although I don't have a recipe post fully prepared and ready to upload today, getting the blog up and running was my goal for this week.

Sweet Talk will discuss all kinds of desserts, from Chocolate Chip Cookies to Lemon Meringue Pie to Oatmeal-Crusted Brownies to Cheesecake. I'll share with you recipes that my family loves plus try some totally new ones to broaden my horizons (I'll need to get a blow torch before I can try making Crème Brûlée).

Join me on my expedition into cookbooks old and new as I search for the best, sweetest desserts this side of Heaven. Happy Baking!
