Welcome to Mind-Over-Batter

MS-MOB

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by!

I take it you’re here because you’d like to know a little more about me, huh? Yes?Cool…

Well, I’m Mrs. M.O.B. (Bosslady at home) and I love my kitchen. Except for washing dishes… I really hate washing dishes. I hope to one day hire someone just to wash my dishes… Oh, and do my laundry…Oh, and fold my laundry. I hate folding laundry too. But I digress…

Please note: I haven’t mastered the whole “talking about me” deal. It’s.Just.Too.Weird.

I began cooking at 19. Before that my cooking ability consisted of oatmeal, eggs, and doughnuts made out of Pillsbury biscuit dough. Back in the day I made a mean fried biscuit doughnut! I learned to cook purely to impress my then boyfriend, now husband, Mr. M.O.B. I hooked him through his belly and taste buds. This is where a lady holds the power… Pro tip: Don’t relinquish that hold…

A few burnt meals, plus one two hour late night trip to score some Benadryl following an allergic reaction; I finally, finally got the hang of it. After he was thoroughly impressed I figured in order to maintain the upper hand I had to keep cooking… So I did…

I’ve been baking since the spring of 2006. Before that I couldn’t bake so much as a cookie. I took a baking course which was actually geared towards cake decorating. During said course I was introduced to my first scratch recipe, and that one recipe initiated my love (read: obsession) for all things baked. It was something that came natural to me; as if my brain + hands + baked goods = soul mates.
