all about me

meet the real jane of many trades, that's me.  on any given day, i am a pastry chef, a photographer, a food stylist, a bookkeeper, a personal chef, a gardener, a beekeeper and a maid.  for nearly 20 years, i have called nashville, tennessee home.

in 2007, my first cookbook, Sky High, Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes, was released.  having had such a wonderful experience working on that book, i did not hesitate to jump in a second time and in 2011, Desserts from the famous Loveless Cafe was released.  at this time, i am currently doing all i can to improve my photography and food styling skills while i work on what i hope will be my next book.

when i am not in the kitchen, chances are i am in the garden tending the beds or helping my husband with our bees.  and yes, i have my marbles; they are getting a work out as pie weights.  so when i am not sifting flour, scouring thrift stores or playing in the garden, i am here killing time in front of the mac and waiting with baited breath for my 7 minutes and 12 seconds of fame.  i'm in no need of the whole 15 minutes-i'd probably just get myself in trouble anyway...
