Tuesdays with Dorie Collage
Just some of the delicious recipes made during Tuesdays with Dorie...

This past week, the baking group Tuesdays with Dorie completed making all the recipes in Dorie Greenspan's wonderful book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I wasn't able to participate each week, but I have made a majority of the recipes in the book. Aside from the butter, flour and chocolate, the Tuesdays with Dorie group changed my life in so many positive ways. I've made new friends and felt such a sense of community and friendship in this vast online world. TWD has helped me discover blogs and inspired me to bake each week! I learned new skills and gained confidence in my baking. Thank you Dorie Greenspan for being supportive of our group (getting a comment from The Dorie Greenspan on your post is such a thrill) and answering our questions. Dorie would give us hints and explanations...she's awesome! Thank you Laurie (who started the group) and Jules (who helped with  coordination) for keeping us organized and on track!

My new year's resolutions is to join the group going through Dorie's classic, Baking with Julia!

I'm sad this round of Tuesdays with Dorie has ended...but I know I have a book full of great recipes and notes, friendships and inspiration to carry me for many years to come.

Please read this Washington Post article about the group!

I can only use your word "thrill" to describe how I felt when I saw your collage. Everything you've baked is so beautiful. Congratulations! I can't wait to see what you and the group will do with Baking with Julia.

You all had quite a run! Your collage is a wonderful tribute to the 3 years you've been baking. Happy New Year!

Groups like this are wonderful. I wasn't a part of it, but I enjoyed reading many of the TwD posts I saw on blogs.

Do you have more information on joining the Baking with Julia group?
