Food and eating have always been an integral part of my life and identity. Growing up as a biracial woman allowed me countless opportunities to expand my palette - learning about my parents' heritage opened many culinary doors and stirred my curiosity. As I got older, I developed an interest in making my own food, specifically in the area of baking. I am a self-taught baker who bakes for fun! It is my way of blowing off steam as well as treating my loved ones. Below you'll find some of my favorite creations - everything is made from scratch unless otherwise specified.
