I'm a home baker who dropped out from a corporate writing career to pursue much more lucrative activities, like raising kids and teaching Jazzercise. I fritter away may days playing with my children, playing with dough, and playing with words. In between, I dance.
Since February 2011, I've participated in an online blogging/baking group, called "Tuesdays with Dorie," in which bloggers from around the world are documenting their path through the cookbook "Baking With Julia," edited by Dorie Greenspan.
In November, 2014, the Tuesdays with Dorie group began working through Dorie Greenspan's cookbook, Baking Chez Moi. I am proud to be a part of this group of dedicated and talented bakers.
I've been published in the online magazine, Mamalode and by the cross-platform media network BlogHer, in its anthology, ROOTS: Where Food Comes From and Where It Takes Us.
I write because I want people to pay attention to the stories all around us. I believe food should be fun and I believe in spreading the gospel of quality time around the table. But you'll find more than just food stories here -- I write about whatever moves me: from the inanely mundane to the unexpectedly sublime. Often both live side by side.
I write because I have a terrible memory, and this is how I can keep track of all the good stuff that happens day to day and year to year.
Also, I write because its the best way I can think of to connect with you, dear reader. If something moves you, please tell me. I'd love to hear from you!
