…like it needs more cupcakes.

What, you say? Cupcakes are a more popular search term than ‘financial crisis’? Ah, well then, by all means let us continue…

Why another blog? More particularly, why this blog?

A few reasons. First, I’m starting a food-based business, and I think the reasons for doing that mesh rather well with why I’m blogging about it.

I love (LOVE) to make tasty food. My talent lies particularly in making tasty sweet things – pastries, chocolate, etc.

Second, I love SHARING my tasty food and getting feedback. (And oohs and aahs and offers of marriage) So, if you have comments or advice? Share them! I love to hear from you.

Related to that — I’ve been getting more and more involved in the foodblogging community, reading your posts and trying your recipes and getting to know people – and I want to be a part of that. I’m a big fan of intentional communities and I like to support and be part of them in areas of my life that are important to me, like baking. By sharing my recipes and experiences with you, I start to give back.

Third, it’ll help me chronicle everything as I go along. It’s my first time starting a business, and I’ll make mistakes. Maybe you can avoid those mistakes. 🙂 Maybe I’ll do some things spectacularly well – and can help by sharing that information. Maybe some of you want to keep up with what I’m doing even though I never see you any more, due to geography or changing schedules.

Fourth, it’s a place for people who might be interested in my business to get to know me as a person. When you’re choosing someone to cater your bridal shower, or make your wedding cake, or your son’s graduation cake, there are a lot of options out there. Finding the person that is the right fit for you is important in the creation of an experience that you will remember with joy, rather than disappointment. Pictures don’t tell the whole story (although they sure are scrumptious).  I’ll also be inviting close friends to blog for me – my husband Jeff (who is a fantastic cook, his soups are to die for) and possibly others.

So, thanks for coming by! Tasty foods coming soon.
