About

I started baking and sewing when I was nine years old after my family moved from St Paul, MN out to the country and my mother signed me up for 4-H.  I took the Bread Project and Sewing Project and developed a life-long love of both.  Over the years I’ve developed recipes; competed in national, state, and local baking competitions; participated as an editor and contributor to cookbooks put out by various organizations in which I’ve been involved; taught children and adults how to bake and cook; and tried over and over to make the perfect loaf of yeast bread.  Join me as I explore traditional–and sometimes unfamiliar—recipes and techniques from a variety of ethnic, cultural, and regional cooking styles.   I’ll show you how to make delicious baked goods of all kinds using whole foods–fresh, frozen, canned, or dried, no mixes–and appropriate tools to insure your success.

Bon appetit!
