Getting to Know The Busty Baker

I've seen this on 2 blogs (How to Eat A Cupcake and 52 Weeks of Baking) within the last 6 hours, so I'm doing it too. It's totally one of those Facebook/MySpace surveys for Food Blogs! You know. Those surveys that one person does, because they saw someone else do it, and within a day, you now know more about everyone on your friend list than you ever cared to learn. Oh, how I do love surveys! Although, I don't feel this one's nearly long enough. Gimme 150 questions about whether or not I have any tattoos, if I have a crush, or who sits behind me in Math class* and I could entertain myself for hours! But.. this is the one I'm given. So this is the one I'll fill out. Besides--I doubt any of you care if I have tattoos.** Have fun learning more about The Busty Baker!

Metal or non-stick? I think most of my baking pans are non-stick. I use silicon liners for my cookie sheets though.

Cast iron or stainless? I just bought myself my first set of Stainless Steel pots and pans last year for my birthday. I lust after All-Clad and Calphalon, but I settled for Cuisinart. But I'd love to add a cast iron to the mix too.

Cutting board: silicone or wood? I've got a small wooden cutting board, which I would love to use, but don't really know how to take care of.. so it just sits there. I use the 2 plastic ones (a big one and a small one) I have instead.. I can just throw those in the dishwasher.

Knife: carbon steel or stainless? Right now, cheap. I would kill for a beautiful set of Wusthofs though..

KitchenAid or hand mixer? KitchenAid. All the way. Although I would like a new handmixer for those rare occasions I need it. Like making Meringue for Hi-Hats. I'd love to have one that mixes at a consistent speed. But I love, love, love my KitchenAid.

Cooktop: gas, electric, induction? I've only ever had electric, but I'd love to have gas someday.

Side-by-side, freezer on top, fridge on top? Right now, Freezer on top is what I have. I'd love to have a Freezer on the bottom one though. Someday... when I have my own home.. and win the lottery. I'll have so many pretty kitchen things..

Apron or whoops? I have 3 aprons and a pink Chef's jacket hanging on the wall in my kitchen. They each serve a specific purpose. I wear my chef's jacket when I'm baking, and especially when I'm decorating. It makes me feel all professional (plus I'm super messy with royal icing.) I wear the pink Williams and Sonoma apron while I'm baking too, if the chef's coat is in the laundry (I'm not actually wearing it with the chef's coat), or I just need to throw it on really quickly. I wear my striped Everyday Food apron if I'm cooking dinner. And the blue Walmart special.. That gets worn when I'm doing dishes. I tend to end up with more water on my shirt than in the sink when I'm done handwashing things. So I gotta cover up.

Mashed potatoes: by hand, ricer, or mixer? Used the mixer for years. Now I do it by hand because I'm too lazy to get the mixer out. Plus I hate my hand mixer. I have a ricer that I acquired in one of Boyfriend's moves, but I've never bothered to use it.

Sandwich or wrap? Depends. Sometimes I'm okay with wraps. But most of the time I'm more okay with a sandwich.

PB & _________ ? Jelly. Or jam rather. Not actual jelly. Usually Smucker's of some sort. Either Strawberry, Blackberry, or Concord Grape. Although I have taken a liking to the Welch's squeeze bottle Grape Jam.

Pancakes: syrup or applesauce? Syrup. Lots and lots of syrup. We were just discussing this at work the other day. It must be fully saturated in syrup. I want it to squish syrup out when I cut into it. And then I have to have a little puddle of syrup on my plate to drag it through before I eat it.

Cake: scratch or mix? Making? Scratch. Unless its for Cakepops. Eating? I'm ok with Mix. I prefer scratch, but I won't turn mix down.

Chili: beans or no? No. Never. I hate beans.

Napkin: cloth or paper? Cloth makes me feel fancy. But I don't use them at home. I use paper.

BBQ: takes the whole weekend to make or take out? What about made at home, but not taking the whole weekend? I'm okay with bottled BBQ sauce.

Chicken: white or dark? Depends. If I'm eating baked chicken or chicken in my food, I like white. But I love drumsticks if I'm eating fried chicken. Mmm.. chicken.

Ice cream: cone or dish? Dish. I eat too slow to eat a cone. I end up with a melted mess before I'm even halfway done. So I have to have something to catch all my drips.


There you have it. Now you know The Busty Baker! At least a little bit. Anything else you want to know? Just drop me a line! the.mistress [at] bustybaker [dot] com!


*Trick question. I haven't had a math class in about 7 years. And with 90 people in my stats class, I couldn't have told you any of their names..

**I don't.
