Hello hello! I have been having an awesome time at the lodge here in Denali National Park. I was originally hired to work as a housekeeper, but then the owners found out that I could bake. They quickly got me into the kitchen and now I am the primary baker for the lodge! I turn out cookies, brownies, blondies, and coffee cake for tourists and locals. A lot of what I bake is vegan, which makes me happy. After my success as a baker, I also slid in to fill an empty position as a line cook! This is not as much fun as baking since so much of the food is decidedly NOT vegan. The ick factor is high, but I like cooking. The peanut butter blondies from Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar are a huge hit, as are the Irish Creme Kisses (I changed the recipe slightly and call them Whiskey Kisses). I have more convenient wifi access now, so I hope to update on a more regular basis and add some photos!
