About Heather

I am pastry chef, bread maker, writer and photographer.  It should be noted that I am these things only in my imagination.  In reality I’m a lawyer, but really, you were much more interested before, weren’t you?  When I was little, I dreamt of having a cottage where I could bake pies all day and then put them on the windowsill to cool.  I still hope that dream will come true.  I prefer baking, as it appeals to my Type A personality because it requires exact measurements and timing so that things don’t fall apart.  Cooking, with all of its possible variations, makes me a little nervous.  I am working on my control issues and will keep you updated.  

Pestle Mortar was created as a place to tell stories that involve food–the preparation, the mistakes, the sweetbabybuddha-this-actually-tastes-good! times, and, of course, those moments that have nothing to do with a recipe, but everything to do with the people around the table.

    Ooh me too, me too! Except I’m a math teacher not a lawyer. I’ll have to check out your blog more.

    Thanks for stopping by! I always wonder if I’d love writing, baking, arts & crafts as much if I did them every day. The goal is to have the chance to figure that out…
