In the beginning…
My mom was an amazing cook, but she wasn’t much of a baker. When my sisters and I yearned for a sweet treat, I turned to our trusty BH&G cookbook and zeroed in on the dessert tabs. My love of baking began in my childhood kitchen. I started my blog in 2010 to chronicle my baking journey. With 40+ years of experience with cooking, baking and entertaining, I’m happy to share my tried and true recipes and tips with you. Only those recipes that have been tested in my kitchen and approved of by my friends and family make it to the pages of this blog.
With a career in Nursing, I took college level Nutrition, plus had experience working with inpatient cancer patients, focusing on their nutritional needs on a daily basis. My baking and cooking education started with my mom, who loved to experiment with cooking. She had the New York Times Cookbook to reference for dinner parties and she taught me how to make food beautiful and delicious. Never to dissuade our creativity, she allowed my sisters and I to cook or bake anything our hearts desired.
Then, as a young mom, I discovered the Food Network, where I watched and learned from Sara Moulton on her show, Cooking Live. While my husband was working long hours, I spent an hour a day being taught tips and tricks from the editor of Gourmet Magazine right in my kitchen.
I have a passion for baking rich, irresistible desserts and garnishing them to perfection. Chocolate Desserts make my family swoon, and I have a thing for Cookies, too! I love to bake from scratch, but on rare occasions will use a little shortcut to make life easier. Head over to my Recipe Index to hunt for a recipe or use the Search Bar on the top of every page. Plus, if you’re wondering how I keep in shape surrounded by desserts, check out my Skinny Tips.
