Hello! I am a stay at home mom and certified elementary school teacher. I dream of madeleines and macaroons crafted in my home kitchen. I love to challenge myself to create new confections. While I’m not a culinary expert, I’m inspired by many who are like Dorie Greenspan, Sarabeth Levine, Sherry Yard, and Martha Stewart. What you’ll find here are my attempts to teach myself the finer points of baking while enjoying every sweet bite along the way. Sometimes my kitchen creations are less than perfect. That’s okay by me because I know I am learning along the way. My clan pictured above sure doesn’t mind.
