Baking is another thing entirely. I love it, because I don't have to improvise or use fancy techniques or know which flavors go together (Hint: Everything goes with chocolate). I love baking. A couple of years ago, I joined a dinner club to help me learn to cook new things. Surprise, surprise, I found myself signing up to bring dessert every month.

My friend Marie Porter has a food blog, and she kindly allowed me to do a guest post to share my bizarre-yet-tasty creation.
Without further adieu, I present you "The Basket Case," my The Breakfast Club-inspired bread pudding:
And in case my comments have rendered you afraid to look, here's a picture. Mmmm!
