About Us



Thank you for visiting!

My name is Cara and this is my loveable Rhodesian Ridgeback, Abner. Abner is a very social and I’ll admit it, spoiled girl who loves to hang out in the kitchen. I like to think she sits there to be with me, but I’m pretty sure she’s just there for the food scraps.

My interest in food started when I was about eight years old and the only two things on my Christmas list were a KitchenAid mixer and Easy Bake Oven. I couldn’t stay out of the kitchen. Thank goodness my parents trusted me enough to whip up whatever I saw on Food Network that day!

Right after high school, I was ready to take on culinary school where I graduated with my associate’s degree in baking and pastry arts. I have gained experience over the years in different bakeries and restaurants, but I found that I am truly passionate about recipe development, food writing and sharing my recipes with other foodies.

  3. Hello beautiful Cara! I’ve only just stumbled upon your blog via a Liebster award page… and I’m glad that I did. Argh, I am considering taking up some study in baking and pastry as well. It’ll be a complete career change, but I think it will be worth it to actually feel like I’m pursuing my passion every day. Where are you working now? Is it what you thought it would be? Thanks for sharing your recipes and stories with us. I can tell that you’re lovely inside and out! You have a new follower 🙂

    1. Hello Laura! Thank you so much for your kind comment and for visiting! Getting further in baking and pastry was the greatest decision I’ve ever made. It was totally worth all the early mornings and long car rides!! And it’s fun!!! Right now I am working at a small culinary studio teaching children’s classes. I am also looking into working at some popular bakeries around my area. It really is great having an education because it makes it so much easier to get a job. There are so many doors that are open for me right now, it’s just a matter of choosing one!! Good luck with everything-if it’s your passion then go for it! Only good things will come out of it. Thank you again for visiting-you also have a new follower!!

      1. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying your career. It does sound fun! Thanks for the encouragement also; it means a lot. Watch this space… I’ll let you know if I take the leap! Looking forward to swapping recipes and stories as the year continues 🙂
        (P.S WordPress seems to be doing something weird today. I’ve tried to follow you twice, but whenever I arrive back on your page the ‘follow’ is gone, grrr. So, I apologise if it’s not registering that I’m following you – I’ll keep trying!)

      2. Hi Laura! I am also looking forward to sharing recipes and stories!
        Oh, and I’m glad I wasn’t the only one having problems following! That happened to me too. I would click follow, come back, and it said I wasn’t following. But, I think it is working now!!
        Good luck with everything and keep me posted! 🙂
