I’m a Marketing Manager married to a Doctor-in-training. Life has taken us to Amherst, Buenos Aires, New York City, and Cleveland, and our love for food—well, more specifically, my love for cooking and his love for eating—has fueled our adventures.
I started this blog during the worst of my second Cleveland winter. I was too cold to go outside, too annoyed with the amount of work my husband was doing, and too…blah. I realized I had turned into my own worst enemy: a sourpuss.
It’s true that to love others, you must love yourself: I needed to start with bringing the sweetness back into my life.
The funny thing is, I’m a really healthy eater. But for some reason, I just love, absolutely love, to bake. When I’m watching the dough come together or smelling the butter start to brown, I slow down and think about how lucky I am to have so many wonderful people to bake for or to hope for. Sugar helps me find my center.
I hope you’ll find easy, fresh, fantastic food on my blog. From the many, many desserts to the more healthful options, pick something—whether it’s my favorite chocolate chip cookie or my Southwest lentil soup—to enjoy with family and friends.
I still think sometimes that I’m stranded with sugar. I still wonder where life will take us. But as long as I have my spatula, being stranded with sugar isn’t all that bad.
In fact, it’s wonderful.
