Well here I go! Getting my feet wet writing about life in my world. Such an amazing place it can be...hmmm....and life's quirks I guess.  I've been told by my friends that I have a great sense of humor and see life a little differently. You know, from the lighter side. They love to hear my version of what happened in a situation because I am so animated that it makes the worst thing sound "not so bad". I am a single mother of three incredible children (I know, all parents say that....but mine really are!). I have a 21 year old Daughter, a 22 year old totally blind son (I know what you are thinking...but they are actually 16 months apart! So I waited a little bit!!), and lastly, a son who is 24. I am a Pastry Chef that spent the past 8 years trying hard to be the Rochester Area's "Cake Boss". What a great run that was!!

I moved to the Greater Phoenix area a few months ago and am on this quest to find everything food. It's incredible here. The options a person can choose from are just amazing. Really! Coming from the little Village of Fairport in Upstate New York, things were quite limited. A friend on the West Coast would post a photo on Facebook of an IN-and-OUT burger. Really? And she couldn't ship! Our Burger King, Wendys and McDonalds can't compare. Not even a little bit. So! Again, as I am a Pastry Chef I want to see what this area has to offer my palate. I'm happy to say I haven't gone to a bad place yet! Well, actually...I have, but that's for someone on another blog to write about. Maybe they were having a bad day. It happens. I'm the Queen of "stuff happening". But! I'm really all about the "fun" things I have found...Oh! And there are many!!

One more quick thing! Have you been on Pinterest? Who hasn't, right?! Well! Periodically I pick a really yummy sounding recipe and try it. So, as I have a head full of exciting thing to put "on paper"....please come along for the ride. I can guarantee that you will laugh....because I LOVE to laugh....! :)
