I am a student of life with over 25 years experience in business management, with a Masters Degree in Public Administration . For many years I was also the pastry chef for our family catering business, creating dozens and dozens of delicious sweet and savoury pies and desserts for catered events. Required to produce a large number of pies from scratch in a short time frame, I refined my baking skills and have learned many short cuts and tips to pass along to both beginner and experienced bakers . My latest hashtag is #piegoddess, and I love to create new recipes and bake family favorites for our friends and family. My husband and I are adventurers, live full time in our Fifth Wheel Recreational Vehicle and I choose Joy every day! I am a writer, food blogger, dog lover and all of this plus being a wife, mom and stepmom and step-grandmother happily content baking perfect pies for family and friends.
