Nerd Update II

We have just over 300 blogs represented!  There are ten bakers named Jennifer.  Four of our bakers are men.  California is the most represented state with 53 bakers.  Our first recipe posts next week!

Nerd Update

So now we are up to 258 blogs with about 270 bakers.  We’re still missing folks from nine states (DE, KS, MI, MT, NE, NM, ND, WV, and WY).  Countries with bakers outside the US include Australia, Netherlands, South Africa, Taiwan, Canada, Philippines, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany, England, Austria, and India!  Our youngest baker (that I know of) is nine.  Our first recipe posts in two weeks!

Fun statistics (why yes, I am a nerd)

We’ve hit our first hundred bloggers for our new book!  We cover 31 states (C’mon DE, FL, HI, IA, KS, MI, MO, MS, MT, NE, NH, NM, ND, OH, OR, SD, UT, WV, WY where are you?), 11 countries, 6 (SIX!) continents (I don’t think that’s going to change unless we get a blogger from Antarctica) and myriad ages and blog experiences.  So excited!

Meme #13

Desert island question.  What one dessert (on a desert island) would be your dessert (desert dessert?) of choice?  And now the word “dessert” is starting to look weird to me.  Variations allowed.

Meme #12

Going back to childhood here – what’s your favorite food associated memory from when you were a kid?  Was it the smell of cookies at Grandma’s house?  The popcorn that your mom always burnt a little bit before movie night?  Share, please.

Meme #11

We’re all friends here.  You can admit it.  Your non-baking friends are envious of your skills.  What are you known for?  What’s the one recipe they ask you to make over and over?  Links to said recipes will only add to your prestige.  ;-)

Meme #10

Ok, sticking with the ingredient theme – what item (items?) lurks in your cabinet just taunting you.  The one you were going to use because it seemed so interesting/exotic/tasty/fun that is still sitting there begging to be used or perhaps just thrown away at this point.  Have at it!

Meme #7

We all have one.  That one recipe that just never works the way you want it to.  Or the one thing you try to cook or bake repeatedly with meh results.  Confess.  What’s your food nemesis?
