A little bit about me………

Well, I am from Ontario Canada where I live in a small town with my husband and 2 boys.

I am the recipe developer, amateur writer and newbie food photographer behind this blog.  My husband, his co-workers and my neighbours are my taste testers and critics.  My boys are my distractions. They keep me on my toes and I am learning to multi-task as a mom.  I am also an advertising sales rep by day.

Baking has always been a passion of mine.  It is my happy place and my creative outlet.  I bake not only because I like to eat dessert, but also because I love to share what I make from the heart.  I get such satisfaction when I see people enjoying what I make.

I started this blog back in January 2014 as a place where I could share some of my favorite recipes with friends, family and anyone who loves to bake.  My goal is to create and share recipes that are easy, fun and delicious.  So follow along with me and let’s make life a little sweeter:)


Let’s connect:
