Please let me clarify something. My recipes are designed for everyone to enjoy. The bonus is they do not contain wheat, rye, or barley; which eliminates the gluten. 

I am having trouble uploading photos to this blog. If you would like to see more of my recipes go to    

If you think you may be gluten intolerant, see a doctor who specializes in gastroenterology. They can conduct the appropriate tests to make an accurate diagnosis.

About Me
In my family, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Cooking and baking skills were handed down from one generation to the next. Anyone who comes to my door is greeted with the aromas only home cooking can create. My grandparents came to America bringing with them the knowledge of creating fine pastries and baked goods. I hope to share my recipes with others who enjoy fine cooking and baking.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my specialty. Cake decorating is my passion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember making strudel with my grandmother. I watched as she carefully pulled the stretchy dough across the table. She asked me to bring her piece of newspaper. Placing the paper under the dough did not obscure the print: that meant the dough was the proper thickness. Melted butter, fresh peeled apples, plump raisins, a pinch of this, a handful of that and topped with a dusting of we roll! The effort produced a huge strudel that snaked around the baking sheet. Served while warm, the hearty eaters in my family savored every morsel. Nothing brings friends and family together faster than home baked goods coming from the oven.
My cooking triumphs
My wedding cake entry, "Winter World of Love", was a winner in, Wilton's, 2005, " Your Take on Cake, Decorating Contest". In 2007, my Halloween cake featuring a black cat resting on a sorcerer's book, was shown in American Cake Decorating Magazine. In 2009, I exhibited my cake, "A Butterfly's Garden", at the International Cake Exploration Society's Convention.
My cooking tragedies
In 2009 I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I can no longer use wheat, rye or barley in my recipes. Fortunately I understand baking chemistry and more importantly I REFUSE to sacrifice taste. I believe that anything I make should satisfy anyone's palate. My philosophy is simple; start with a great traditional recipe and modify it as little as possible.
