New mini-book for sale: The Ultimate Guide to Cheesecake!

Good news! I have written a new mini-book! It is a cross between a book and a pamphlet. I have lovingly been referring to it as a "bamphlet"! haha

The title: The Ultimate Guide to Cheesecake

What you can expect to find inside: Tips and tricks to baking the perfect cheesecake, cheesecake recipes, and most if not all of your cheesecake baking questions answered.

It is a very detailed mini-book containing all the information you need to bake an amazing cheesecake from home.

Look to the right of my blog and you will see a Pay Pal tab for you to purchase the mini-book. It is a secure, quick and easy buying process. The mini-book will be emailed to you within 24 hours of me receiving your payment :)

I am so excited to have this up and running on my blog! Thank you to my friend Kim M. who inspired me to do this and helped me with my Pay Pal widget! Hugs and love to you :)

Baking and Ingredients class with AIB


Hello, all! I have been a busy bee!
I have created a weekly schedule for myself in order to get in everything I would like to do each week. It's a process juggling work, family, baking, writing and studying! However, it can be done. They key is to be sure to take time for yourself doing things you enjoy because the moment you set aside doing the things you enjoy is the moment you begin to feel stress. (Thanks to my husband for pointing that out to me.)

However, all that being said, I have completed my first class with AIB! I made an 80 on my first quiz and then I made 100 on it when I took it over again.

The final exam was very detailed, but I put all of my focus into it and made a 96! I was very excited about that...it has been years since I took classes for school :)

My next class will be a cookie baking class...this I am very excited about! I will keep you posted as to when I begin and as to what great things I am learning.

Today is Thursday...it is the day I have allotted for myself to workout! I am looking forward to doing my cardio today :)

Lesson learned: Stay consistent. Continue to do the things you enjoy no matter how crazy life can be. Make time for yourself no matter what :)

The picture above is my award winning: Mascarpone cheesecake! Click here for the recipe.
