I started teaching myself to cook and bake after I graduated from college. I earned a Master's degree in Special Education and taught for 16 years, cooking and baking on most weekends. I got so into baking that I even taught cake decorating for awhile. When I finally left teaching, I headed straight for culinary school and earned my diploma in Patisserie and Baking from Orlando Culinary Academy, a Le Cordon Bleu program. While in school, I also worked part time as pastry cook in a fine dining restaurant.

After graduation, I transitioned to full time at the restaurant and worked my way up to the pastry chef position before leaving there to help open a new restaurant. I got to help set the dessert and bar snack menu, and many of the dishes I developed are still on the menu there today.

I started my (then) static website in 2007, a blog in 2008, and then combined the two into a Wordpress site in 2010. I still mainly feature desserts, and I focus on helping people become "fearless in the kitchen" by using humor to teach them the basics they need to be successful cooks and bakers.
