I started this page in 2010 as a creative outlet and as a way to share my loving of baking with my family, friends, and you. Baking is one of my hobbies and passions, and I enjoy sharing the things that I've learned with others. I'm also an avid reader, and find myself reading other food blogs quite often. I love to write and take pictures as well- so starting my own blog gives me the opportunity to use my creativity on a more regular basis!
I'm a 30-something single mom living in East Central Florida with my son Ben (self named "The Cooker Boy") and our two black cats, Pepper and Shadow. I have a career that I love- I'm a Registered Respiratory Therapist in one of the local hospitals. I work mostly in Critical Care or Birth Care- two of the areas I love most in the hospital.
I enjoy experimenting with new (and old) recipes in my kitchen, especially baked goods. I also enjoy music (my TV is turned to the Music Choice Showtunes channel when I cook)- I've played the piano for 25 years now, the cello for almost as long, and while I don't have the best voice in the world, I can sing along to most of the tunes on the aforementioned channel!
My hopes for this blog..
I read many blogs, and have gotten most of my favorite cake recipes from other bloggers. I hope to one day be a resource for other home cooks. I'm hoping to meet other food bloggers and learn from them. I'd love to turn my baking into a part time business one day in the future, so I'm hoping this will be an avenue that leads me in that direction!
Central Florida Cupcake Camp...
I'm in the early stages of planning Central Florida's very own Cupcake Camp. Please visit my other blog for information, and to help out. I need all the help I can get...help planning, donations, a venue..

Product Reviews and Giveaways..
One of my favorite features on other blogs are the product reviews and giveaways.I've never won anything, but I've learned about some new products that way, and I love reading the opinions of others before I buy something for my own use.
I am more than willing to review products and host giveaways on this site. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to discuss a review or giveaway.
If you have any questions or suggestions for me, please email me at email@example.com. I'd love to hear from you!
