Welcome

 

Hi! I'm Lindsay and welcome to my page! I was born and raised in New Jersey, which is where I currently reside with my husband Justin, and our two dogs, Leo and Penelope.

Growing up food was always a big part of my life. I spent most of my childhood in the kitchen baking all sorts of sweet treats, thinking about my next meal, and to this day I will always save room for dessert!

I graduated from the French Culinary Institute in 2005 with a degree in Pastry Arts, and have worked in some of New York City's most prestigious restaurants.

I started this blog to share all of the delicious recipes that I have created over the years.

Thanks for stopping by!

A splash of Aperol gives this cocktail the prettiest blush hue and is the perfect medley of flavors for the warmer months ahead.
