So, You’re  a Vegetarian Now?

haven’t really blogged about it at all, but on a whim I decided to become a vegetarian. I have been going strong since mid September 2015. My last meaty meal was takeout Chinese food, and I remember it like it was yesterday. But to be honest I don’t really miss meat at all. Well, to…

So You Want To Be a Professional Baker

  Ever since I was 13 years old there was nothing I wanted more than to be a pastry chef. I would bake in my free time, I would read cook books, I would even spend my time in the bookstore looking for new cookbooks. My Pinterest is overloaded with recipes from day to day muffin…

Being A woman in the Kitchen

Some of the sexist men in this world may make the comment that women belong in the kitchen, but in the industry this notion is quite different.

The show playing was called the Kids baking championship. This show features young culinarians competing for their shot at $10,000 as well as a new kitchen, and an excerpt in…

In No Time Things Change

So, remember how two posts I was kind of sort of complaining about my new job? Well over night I went from salad prep girl to banquet events dessert girl, which I am actually excited about. I am still learning the ins and outs as well as my true role in this position. But on…

Getting The Job, That Wasn’t My Dream Job

With much hard work and some summer classes I became eligible to graduate early. I figured I would get a leg up on my competition; the swarm of college students all fighting for the same thing… a job. With the hope of paying off those dreadful high interest loans. I started the job hunt in…
