About Me (and them)

Hi!  My name is Marlise and I am an avid baker, quilter, and stay at home mom to five year old boy/girl twins in New Jersey.  They started Kindergarten in September 2013.  Woo hoo!

I took up cooking in November 2010 because it seemed like a challenge I could handle while watching the kids.  Since then, I have discovered baking.  This I love.   Right now, my favorite books are Dorie Greenspan’s Baking from My Home to Yours and Carole Walters’ Great Cakes.  I try to bake a couple times a week.  I let my family taste the results and then the rest goes into the freezer until we have guests.  I love having a full freezer so I can pop out a dessert with little notice.

I share my good recipes, and my good and not so good results.  I hope it gives you some inspiration for baking in the future.
