For more beautiful desserts, recipes and party planning ideas, please visit my blog, Glorious Treats

I am a 30 (ish), stay at home mom of two girls. My (wonderful!) husband and I live in Northern California. I love to cook and bake, esspecially desserts! In addition to baking, I really enjoy photography (I'm just learning), scrapbooking and gardening.

I love flickr and find it a wonderful place to get inspiration, tips, recipes, and even friendship! I appreciate each and every comment left on my photos, and enjoy receiving Flickr mail from wonderful people from around the world. Most everyday I receive several questions regarding techniques and recipes and I am in a season of life where I just don't have the time to respond to each question. I have young children, a husband, and a house to care for, and as much as I'd enjoy just sitting at the computer all day, I just can't. I am not a professional chef, I have learned most of what I know about baking simply from reading and experimenting, and my best suggestion is for you to do the same. I have at least 6 or 8 cookbooks just on cupcakes, let alone dozens of other dessert or general cookbooks. I have also gathered many recipes from blogs, or simply from doing google searches. Please don't take offense if you send me a message and I don't respond. I appreciate hearing from you, I may just simply not have enough time to throughly answer your question.

Here I am!
