This week has been rather a stressful and hectic one, and seeing as how my last several entries were all rather serious or somber, I thought it was high time for a little more levity in this blog. Therefore, please enjoy-
My Favorite Baking Tunes
Feel free to send me yours, or share them in the comments! There’s always more room in my bakery playlist!
Candyman (Christina Aguilera)
Because men can cook, and be dead sexy doing it! Love the popping, vintage feel of this song.
“Beef. It’s what’s for dinner.”
I loved visiting New Orleans many years ago, and part of it (besides the food!) was the wild, earthy madness of zydeco music. Perfect song when you’re really feeling the baking mojo, and you feel more like a witch doctor than a baker.
Just something about this song makes you want to whirl around the kitchen, flip things in pans, and toss pizza in the air.
Sometimes you want to be calm, serene, and careful. Sometimes you want to light things on fire and rock out over the stove.
Another song for when you’re feeling the groove of your work, and everything is just in the zone. You’re another Freak in the Freak Kingdom…
Does this even NEED explaining?
Hey, it is sometimes!
There is a storied relationship between music, love, and food. Why not celebrate country-style?
Because why the hell not?!
A kitchen is the heart of the house- it’s where the family comes together and eats. Why not music that reminds you of being home?
They say, “Write about what you know.” That’s Jimmy Buffett in a nutshell.
A couple honorable mentions as well…
Tell me you didn’t expect THIS one…
Some of you may be confused why the theme from the movie “Backdraft” is here. Those who recognize it though…
