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.

New Job!

I started a new job this month at this wonderful little shop in Oxford, Mississippi. It's called Lusa pastry cafe. It's run by the sweetest couple from Portugal. If I had my own shop it would look a lot like what they have. I have been making a few pastries for them and next week I'm going to start making lunch as well. We will have a different menu each couple months, so that our food can be seasonal. The items we will serve are going to be more like the south and what you find if you went to your Mamaws for a Sunday dinner. So far Tuesday will be pasta day and Saturday is Cajun day. Beyond that we are still deciding. So if you are near by you have to stop in and enjoy some wonderful food! Oh and the Hot Chocolate is amazing!
Here are few of the items I have made so far. I will start posting new pictures as I remember to take them. I tend to forget while I'm working.
