I'm Gesine.  I bake.  I eat.  I think about what I'm going to bake while I'm eating the thing I just baked.  I teach baking. I have a baking school called Sugar Glider Kitchen where you can come learn all about baking and pick my sweet brain. Go HERE to check out our class schedule.

I write books about baking (to see them, click HERE), I teach baking at King Arthur Flour & Stonewall Kitchen from time to time and sometimes I'm on t.v. talking about baking.  I pretty much nudge the people at The Today Show and The Talk on a regular basis and say, "Hey.  Have me on.  I made a bunch of treats and I'm trucking them into your studio to talk about how great all this baking is."

That's right.   Cooking Channel flew me to Colorado to eat an ice cream cake.   

I have a gig on the Cooking Channel on a show called Unique Sweets.  Guess what?  I don't bake for them.  You know why?  Because they send me around the country to eat sweets instead and my job is to talk about what I just ate.  
Getting ready to teach the folks at Better Homes and Gardens headquarters a thing or two about sugar!

I'm also a regular contributor to Better Homes and Gardens.  I team up with their fabulous food editor, Nancy, and together we concoct dessert features.  We spend weeks, nay months, dreaming up sweet zaniness.  I can't make this stuff up, sweet people.  My job is to dream up sweets.  Pinch me.

You want strudel?  I'll pull you some strudel dough.  No problem.

I'm a guest food editor at Food & Wine.  Guess what I do for them?  Yup.  I dream up desserts to accompany the season.

I'm a guest instructor at King Arthur Flour, spreading the sweet word to all manner of bakers.  What a life!

I used to have a pastry shop but that ended up getting in the way of my baking.  All that business was cramping my relationship with butter and sugar.

And this blog, this is where I vent my baking spleen.  Sometimes I'll share a recipe that revolves around cooking but mainly, it's all about the bake.

Thanks for visiting me, sweet people.  I hope you enjoy the goodies.
