"The best memories of my life are of the times spent in the kitchen with my Memaw."
I'm a self-taught baker, born and raised in the midwest.
Food really brings people together — I love that connection and the happiness surrounding it. Since graduating from Indiana University in 2009 with a degree in Journalism and Fine Arts, I’ve worked as a magazine art director in Chicago.
Baking has always been my hobby, and after getting so much positive feedback from family and friends I decided to bring my passion to life.In the summer of 2016, I became legit—got my food permit, rented a commercial kitchen, and began my journey as a small business.
My dessert style is based on rich, homemade recipes and brings feelings of comfort and love in every bite. The enjoyment I get from sharing this with others is why I created my business.
Years from now I want to be remembered for my love of cooking, being true to myself, and enjoying life to its fullest.
I love planning elaborate picnics any time of the year. My claim to fame was winning runners up in the Grant Park Music Festival Picnic Contest in Chicago a few years ago with my Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony-inspired spread.
We always had fragrant purple lilac bushes growing outside my house in Indiana. The scent of fresh lilacs always brings memories of sunshine and springtime.
Dare I say it, the one thing I may love more than desserts is...beer! When I’m not baking, you can find me at one of the many local craft breweries nearby getting a flight with my dad.
I could eat pizza every week for the rest of my life—it never gets old! My absolute favorite is the four cheese from Silver Beach Pizza in St. Joseph, Michigan.
I feel at home nearby the lake—whether it be climbing the dunes or walking out to the lighthouse. My heart belongs in the Midwest.
