One of Our Pumpkin Recipe Finalists
When we saw that a Spiced Pumpkin Soufflé had been entered in our contest we were a bit surprised; you don’t think of or see soufflés everyday. And the image that captured it in its towering glory drew us in. Then as we read Shauna’s directions we were so impressed with how approachable she made it. It has always been important to us at Bakepedia to demystify the baking process and she held our hands, step-by-step. Check out Shauna’s other recipes at haveyourselfatime.com
Let’s get to know Shauna:
Dédé: How did you find Bakepedia?
Shauna: I found out about it on ContestCook.com and I thought, well, I am not much of a baker but I’ve had luck with a few things…
You mean recipes or contests?
Both! (We both laugh). I have really enjoyed Bakepedia. I love the big images of the people you interview; it really sets you apart. I have a blog so I do spend some time looking at other food blogs and sites…
What is your site?
It’s called HaveYourselfATime and it’s not a professional blog or anything; it’s really just my personal blog. I enjoy learning new things. I will set aside whole days and that’s what I did teaching myself to make a soufflé.
You had never made one before? You jumped into a contest with a soufflé and you had never made one? How the heck did you decide that was the recipe to make?
I have a fetish for classic French cooking and all the technique. I had always been curious about soufflé; I didn’t think I could make one. That’s what I do on Sundays. I just spend the day in the kitchen working on recipes for my blog. I thought, why not try!
I am so impressed. You completely demystified it.
Well, thank you. I had to write it in a way that I could understand it so it all worked out! I am constantly reading about technique and thinking about how I can do things in a way that won’t be hard.
I also liked that it was for two. I think many people don’t bake because they think they are going to end up with three dozen cookies around and maybe their household is just them or one other person.
Thank you Shauna and Good Luck!
