I became interested in baking 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 change my career. 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 as a hobby. Some day I plan to go back and finish my degree. I adore cupcakes and have a dream of opening my own cupcakery one day. It's a lofty dream and who knows if it'll ever happen, but it's fun to have dreams. Everyone should have big dreams!
I live in northeastern Pennsylvania with my husband and our two spoiled dogs, Owen and Manny. My husband and I love trying new restaurants and tasting craft beers and wine. Some of my other favorites include working out, yoga, walking my dogs, reading, and watching The Walking Dead. Through my job, I co-authored a few books, including Culinary Careers For Dummies, which was published in 2011. I hope you enjoy my blog!
