I like to bake, I like to eat and I like to travel, but most importantly, I love to share what I make and experience with my friends and family.  Here is where this website comes in.  I can't mail off my pastries to my family everyday, so hopefully these pages can fill that gap.

Raised a New Englander in the wonderful state of Maine, baking has been a love of mine since I was allowed to play with the flour! Special thanks to my fabulous mother who ate all of my green cupcakes with a smile :) This past fall 2016, my husband and I moved to Atlanta, Georgia! While it's no vacationland, I have learned that this city has its charm, is full of food, and has some of the nicest people I have met-which we will experience together!

I attended the University of Connecticut (go Huskies!) for undergrad, studying French and International Relations. There was countless hours of class, many adventurous months living in France, meeting my super cute fiancé, and baking. And during my final year at school I decided to apply to culinary school. 

The following fall, I began at the Culinary Institute of America in their Baking and Pastry Arts program, pursuing my passion of baking. With two degrees, what do I want to do? Bake of course! Cookbook in my future? One can dream!

Now, even though I bake all day at work, I take any chance I get to bake at home too!  I know not everyone is sugar obsessed like me, but who doesn't love a fresh baked good every now and then?

While I love baking, traveling and eating are my second and third loves (in no particular order), which comes in handy when I'm trying to get some inspiration for my next endeavor.  With that being said, some of my recipes might border on traditional, some may be a little out there, but I will always provide easy to follow steps so you can create your own masterpieces at home. Plus, my fiancé assures you they're all delicious (he says he won't let me post a recipe with out taste-testing!).

So get your oven mitts out and preheat your ovens because it's about to get sweet up in here..(courtesy of Roberto!)
