I love to bake, anyone who knows me will tell you that. My biggest influences are my mother and my grandmother who I still learn from today. My family is known for making homemade bread among many other things - cookies, cakes, frostings, candy... all from scratch. You could say we have a bit of a sweet tooth.
My grandma and I were talking one day about all the delicious homemade food we eat when our family gets together and how nice it would be to pass along those recipes. We came up with the idea of putting together a cookbook. I wanted it to be a collection of our favorite recipes we enjoy together along with our go-to-recipes we use in our homes. I quickly collected over 80 recipes -- yes, more than just sweets -- and started writing.
I also love photography and design, which combined with food is the perfect combination. I don't know about you, but I prefer cookbooks that have pictures so I decided I was going to make every recipe and photograph it. Crazy i know, but I am determined. I also wanted to design the layout and really create a work of art for my family to have and enjoy for years to come.
The cookbook is available to purchase here:
