On Monday I bought some croissants and thought I would put Nutella in them and I absolutely fell in love with it. So I got it in my head that I could make crossaints. When I searched for recipes all of the them warned me with words like: complicated, patience needed, methodical approach, messed up again etc.... But alas I threw caution to the wind and dove in. Heck, I just got over my fear of making foccocia bread and that is big and bulky so surely I could handle this little dainty thing called a croissant.
Results: My dough was not light and fluffy but it was flaky and good. My friend with the recipe said that when she has had croissants in France they weren't light and fluffy. So I think I did okay for the first time but I will try it again and hope for a better product.
I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.
