Articles by Jana Erwin:

As a high school student, Jana Erwin fell madly in love with Washington, D.C. Eight years, a couple of degrees and an internship later, Jana moved from Arizona to the East Coast with high hopes of changing the world. After five years in the political machine she realized she could do that more with party foods than party politics. She started a not-for-profit small business,, the 'Robin Hood' of baking blogs. When Jana isn’t in the kitchen, she’s restoring her 1920s rowhouse in DC’s up-and-coming Historic Anacostia neighborhood. You can see more of her projects on her blog, Cherry Tea Cakes. You can also follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
