I'm not afraid to admit that food absolutely delights me! Contrary to what others may say, I believe that food is not fuel. Food is comfort, it is memories, it is joy. And there's nothing wrong with that. It makes me sad when people talk about feeling guilty after enjoying a meal or treat. Of course we should strive for overall good health, but there are plenty of things to feel sad about in this world, and enjoying delicious food should not be among them.
I've been a lucky girl from the start. I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland in an amazing family. My dad is one of the greatest guys alive and my mom is infinitely talented. I owe her a lot because she taught me to never be afraid to try new things. Like starting this blog for example! My sister Brooke and I are alike in a lot of ways, (including an obsession with treats) but she's always been a little more adventurous, and I love that about her.
We're now living in Rochester, New York where he's completing an internal medicine residency. We love this place!
I love shopping at antique stores, baking, doing pilates, pouring over cookbooks, going to church, spending time with family, playing outside, surfing the blogosphere and exploring fun restaurants in Rochester. Residency keeps Gradon pretty busy, but we take little day trips and vacas whenever we can, and cherish every moment.
If you're local to Rochester and have an event coming up or a gift in mind, check out Belle of the Cake Ball! I'm always ready to whip up something special. If you're hungry for more, follow me on Pinterest! Happy Baking.
