I am a mother of 3 beautiful children. I am a pastry chef and am a classicaly trained chef. I have battled my way through cancer and come out the other side. I love to bake. It is a passion and what I spend most of my time doing. I like knowing where the dessert, I am making, comes from. I, also, like to use fresh ingredients. If I can get them at the farmers market or straight from a farm, I will.
