A Little About Me

After growing up making all the sweets at every family gathering and holiday, I fell in love with desserts. I chose to attend the Culinary Arts program at Brigham Young University Idaho. After graduating I have worked at various jobs making cakes and other goodies. The most recent being the Pastry Chef for the Oxford University Club, Taylor Grocery Special Events Catering in Oxford, Mississippi, and now my mom's farm-Fiddlin Rooster Farm- in Water Valley, MS. I have many family recipes and several of my own that I enjoy making and would love to make them for you.

I haven't made any new desserts lately just lots of chocolate chip cookies and brownies, so I looked back and found some pictures I took a while back. I went through this muffin madness. I was craving muffins and decided to perfect a few of my recipes. I made a blueberry muffin with a lime glaze and a chocolate chocolate chip muffin. They were so yummy! The blueberry ones where so good that when I made them I ate 5 in one sitting. It ended up being my dinner that night. I went through about 3 different batches on various night till I finally got the perfect recipe. I ended up sharing a lot of the muffins with friends and family. I hope you all enjoyed them.

Yummy Treats!

Easter Cupcakes
My mom and I made these cupcakes for our church Easter party. She had seen the idea and wanted to try it out. I think they are so cute! The cupcakes are white cake and chocolate chip white cake. The frosting is a fluffy butter cream. We used coconut, marshmallows, jelly beans, and M&M's for decoration. They are in two sizes mini and regular.

Ooey Gooey Brownies
I made these yummy brownies for the Ole Miss football coaches yesterday. We decided they needed a different treat. We have been making them cakes and cookies, but they deserved something new.

Faculty dinner with the coach!

Ole Miss Football ...Unsatisfied!
The faculty spent a day with the football team and ended there evening with a dinner in the indoor practice facility. I made 2 sheet cakes with a football on top. The cake is covered with butter cream icing and the football has chocolate fondant on it. They let us introduce the new theme on the cake. They are unsatisfied with last year's accomplishments and want to do better! Well, I hope they do better! Hotty Toddy!

If anyone is interested I can put the football on any cake or by itself.

Easter Treats

Easter sugar cookies
These cookies look red, but they are actually a hot pink color. They have silver pearl eyes and a light dusting of glitter on top.

These are some really cute rice crispie treats My mom made this weekend for the grand kids. I liked the idea so I had to share.
