I also had 3 journals filled with ridiculously ambitious ideas, most of them were just knockoffs of major Hollywood films.

My journey began growing up in my Grandparents’ home. My Granny, Annie Jean Johnson, taught me how to cook and bake. The first cake she showed me how to make that is still a staple in my family today is her amazing Cream Cheese Pound Cake. This was the beginning for me because once I got a taste for baking and putting my “spin” on recipes, I was hooked. So my passion and love for baking were developed early in life. Read more>>
