FOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!

Yesterday's treat

Crystal asked if I had ever thought of opening a bakery.
Not really.

My Grandma Stasiuk (mom's mom) operated a bakery out of her home for years and did catering and weddings cakes and all kind of FOOD things for years and years and years. I am pretty sure she even would do about 5 dozen buns a week and a store would sell them (i'd be up for something like that... but how does one even START doing that?? who knows!)

My mom had a restaurant for a while and I used to help out after school which was fun but lots of work.

I have always wanted to try catering something, but there are so many other things that occupy my time. If I was going to be at a wedding I'd rather be taking pictures at it that cooking all the food. So it couldn't be a wedding. I have done a few church dinners in past wards, which I LOVED and would love to do more in the future :) And there is always Ukrainian Christmas. And that's why I like to invite people over to eat lots. I haven't done a homemade Chinese Food night in a while.... hmmm maybe soon.

Regan would like it if I got rid of a lot more of the baking I do I am sure (he says I am making him fat lately.... he's not fat at ALL). I think I'm more of a donate baking kind of girl. Which speaking of that, I volunteered to make donuts for the Scout fundraiser they are having in our ward. So I got up early two Saturdays back and made 5 dozen donuts and 3 dozen long johns (and I had made a wedding cake a few days before) and called to ask someone if they could put the whipped cream on the top of the long johns and she told me it was the WRONG SATURDAY. And I had a wedding to shoot that afternoon. All that on the wrong day. So silly. So I took all the donuts to the wedding and they served them at the reception. I am so silly. hahahahahaha :)

Yummy! These look DELISH! LOL on the wrong day. Oh boy...that would have been CRAZY!:) How did the doughnuts go over? I would have loved them as they are my favorite sweet treat.

We loved the doughnuts and they were a hot item, thanks for the added bonus and the cake was so yummy too. thanks again for all you did for the weekend. Kari

OK girl i totally think you should sell your food too. I don't know how you would start, maybe pick some of your favorites to sell and start a blog where people can order them from you. I bet people rather order from you than a store, i know i would. Good luck! Hopefully i get to order some stuff from you this summer.

You would do good at selling your food or catering etc. Ahh, at least you were able to use the donuts at the wedding. Thats a lot of work. If you have any good chinese food recipes, I would love them. I have been wanting to try to make Chinese food at home for a while. Do you have a good ginger beef recipe? That's my husbands fav.

I'm sure the wedding guests were grateful for your mistake!

Not that I want to be fatter, but I would gladly take temptations away from Regan. Or, I know I've said it a thousand times already, the H. family could always move in to your place.

I would love to do a chinese food night. Those are always fun, and you do doughnuts!!! I want to learn.

Ah, you've got good food in your blood! Lol - When I bake things Shaun complains that I'm making him fat, when I don't he complains that there's nothing to eat - it's a lose-lose! And I loved hearing that you made all those donuts on the wrong day - that's totally something that I would do!

I'm glad you were at least able to bring the doughnuts to the wedding! I love how you stay so positive though, I would have been extremely frustrated!

I think I need you around when I un-quit sweets. Just sayin'.

I just saw a book online and thought of you and this post. The author is Denise Vivaldo and she has a couple of books like how to start a home-based catering business and how to start a home-based personal chef business.
