Boldly Baking From The Heart
Let it be known that a delicious adventure awaits every time you step foot in the kitchen.
Meet the Maker
My fondest memories of childhood are of my sisters and I sitting up on the kitchen counter with my mother making her famous oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

This is a true salted caramel cake masterpiece.
Warm scents of cinnamon and apple wafting through the open oven door. The bubbling of caramelized brown sugar around the toasted edges of the golden-brown oat crisp top. Soft juicy apples that burst with autumn delight in every single bite. This is everything apple crisp and more. The best part, it's easily gluten-free and even vegan!
The days are getting a bit shorter and the nights a bit cooler. I'm remiss to say, but I believe fall is on the way. One thing I do love about autumn approaching is the ability to bake my days away. There's something truly comforting about a warm kitchen filled...
