About me

Introduction Greetings. I am a first time mama and life-long neurotic that errs on the side of drama. I was born in a bakery in a quaint little village and much of my formative early years were spent munching doughnuts and washing them down with Yop. I am a University graduate wondering what to do with my degree while I stay at home with my daughter. This is where I am currently earning a doctorite in Patience from the School of Mom. I am a wannabe freelance writer and a for-real food enthusiast. When not at home dabbling in new recipes, I conduct extensive comparative research sampling the varied cullinary delights of the world. I am also known to make a mean batch of old-timey handcrafted candy that my loyal customers have coined Rocaine. It is so intoxicatingly delicious that it is barely legal. Welcome to my narcissism and food addiction. I sure like it, you might too!
Interests blogs (all of a sudden), babies, other mamas, chocolate, handmade goodness, children and youth, mental health, laughter, hiking, nature, dates with my husband, growth and change, community, small details about your life - the curiosity never ends, learning... the list goes on...
