A recipe creator of all things sweet and delicious! I am pastry obsessed, a perfectionist by nature, and want to inspire home bakers to try new, unique recipes!
I grew up in rural Pennsylvania cooking and baking with my grandma, Butchie. My earliest memories include kneeling on a stool (I can remember the exact one!) helping her add ingredients into the stand mixer on the counter.
She is the woman who taught me that it’s perfectly OK to eat cake for breakfast (or anytime, for that matter), and instilled in me a love for reading cookbooks cover to cover. It feels as though my whole life has revolved around bringing people together through delicious creations!
I’m a bit “extra” in the sense that it’s hard for me to keep things plain and simple. My day-to-day food life always turns out a bit like an infomercial – “But WAIT, there’s more!” That has definitely translated into my baking. While there are specific recipes made to be simple and to the point, I am here to provide you with show stopping desserts for any occasion. Meaning…sometimes they may feel a bit extra, but I promise you, it’s worth it!
I’m actually a savory over sweet type of gal, but am totally enthralled with the process and design aspect of baking. Sometimes it feels like I don’t think about anything else! I always want to learn, do, and taste MORE! No matter the outcome of my attempts – success or flop – I truly love to bake and I hope that feeling stays with me forever.
The primary goal of the desserts I create is to inspire a sense of beauty and pleasure, and to leave you longing for just one more bite. When you make these recipes in your own kitchen, I hope you feel the same love and care. Thank you so much for joining me on this indulgent journey!
