|Owen and Ange|
I became interested in cooking a few years ago after meeting my husband. I took a cake decorating class and started baking and decorating cakes as a hobby. Then I started blogging as a way to keep track of recipes. I decided to sign up for pastry arts school and try to make a career out of baking. The economy tanked soon after, and I was forced to quit school and focus on my editing career instead.
While I'm sad it didn't work out the way I had planned, it hasn't stopped me from baking. I plan to go back at some point and finish my degree. I'm addicted to cupcakes and have a dream of opening my own cupcakery one day. It's a big dream and who knows if it'll ever happen, but it's fun to dream. Everyone should have big dreams and follow their hearts!
I live in northeastern Pennsylvania with my husband, Randy, and our two spoiled pups, Owen and Manny. My husband and I love going to Penn State football games, trying new restaurants, and tasting craft beers and wine. Some of my other favorites include: testing new recipes; working out; walking my dogs; reading biographies, cooking magazines, blogs, and old cookbooks; watching too much Food Network and AMC (I love The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad!); and sipping craft brews and wine with good friends. Through my job, I co-authored a few books, including Culinary Careers For Dummies, which was released in 2011.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
