So here’s the thing. When you’re tied to a job, where you live is kind of set in stone. For a long time, I’ve lived in Northwest Ohio, because that’s where my job was. Now that I work for myself, the world (or at least, the state of Ohio) is our oyster.
We’ve decided that our little birdie needs to grow up around her grandparents and uncle, and multitude of cousins, great aunts, etc., which necessitates a move back to the Cleveland area. As everyone knows, Cleveland Rocks, right?
Croissants. I love them, but they’ve been on my Do Not Attempt At Home list for years. Even though I consider myself to be a pretty good baker, there are just certain things that intimidate the heck out of me.
Croissants were right up there with puff pastry, multi-tiered wedding cakes, and Baked Alaska, because let’s face it – me + a torch is never a good idea. However, I’m feeling pretty confident with croissants these days thanks to Colette Christian and Craftsy.
