My love and passion for baking started at a very young age while I excitedly watched my mom make her famous chocolate walnut torte. The love she poured into it, the smell of fresh baked chocolate that filled the air...it drew me in and didn't let go. Even today, I still make her famous torte; always remembering the love that goes inside.
In college, I studied TV Production. Once I graduated I spent a season working on a national talk show. Then came another corporate position until I realized that I was simply going through the motions and that I didn't LOVE what I was doing.
That life changing moment came to me while baking dessert during a dinner party. Guests kept wandering into the kitchen to find out what they smelled. That childhood feeling returned. It was at that moment I realized how much I love baking. It recaptured my childhood joy. Like an ingredient, I sprinkle it on everything I make and guarantee you will taste the love in every bite.
