welcome to my site. I’m so glad you are here. I am a wife, mom, self proclaimed foodie, self taught cook, baker, home maker and now owner of Silver City Baking Company and pastry chef at Chateau on the Lake in Bolton Landing, NY.

I went from amateur baker to being catapulted onto the national TV scene as one of the top ten cast in the country to be featured on ABC’s 2018 β€œThe Great American Baking Show - Holiday Edition”. I competed in 18 baking challenges ultimately finishing as a finalist in the TOP THREE finale show! This was an experience of a lifetime and one that has made it even more clear to me that SHARING my food with you is what I am meant to do.

When I started to cook and bake it was simply to put delicious dishes on our family dinner table. Over the years it developed into a passion for the art of cooking, baking, entertaining and a never ending urge to learn and master classic sweet and savory recipes. I turned my hobby into a passion, and my passion into a business and love sharing my food and story with others, hopefully inspiring them to pick up a wisk in the kitchen and pursue goals and dreams.

I take great pride in creating and sharing real life recipes and tips for the home cook and baker. Above all, I love learning new ways to make a home run smoother, the kitchen smell better and our world a little happier.

It is no secret that the kitchen is the heart of the home, it is my goal to share with you recipes using real ingredients and some of the tips I use that help me put delicious and REAL dinners and desserts on our table.

Hopefully by sharing my love for food and my passion to follow your dreams I will help to inspire and provide useful information that you can use to do the same thing. With passion, hard work, authenticity and consistency anything is possible. I hope that you enjoy all that I share and come back often to see whats new.

As Julia Child said, β€œIf you can read, you can cook.”

From my home to yours,
