This is the story of a boxed cake, break-and-bake, store bought dessert lover on a quest to become a recipe reading, ingredient mixing, make it from scratch baking queen.
Hi! My name is Lisa. I’m a twenty-something working girl living in Arlington, VA (Washington DC’s neighbor).
I love many things – I love my family, my friends, running, golfing, everything pink, puppies, watching thunderstorms, turtles, laughing until my stomach hurts, traveling, chubby babies, trashy reality television, eating free samples at Costco, lounging by the pool, reading, Starbucks mocha frappucinos, exploring our nation’s capital and desserts.
ALL desserts. If it has sugar in it, I’ll eat it! When it comes to making these delectable treats however, my skills fall short. That’s where my friends Better Crocker, Duncan Hines, and that nice man from the Harris Teeter bakery come in. Yes, these baked goods are delicious and require slim to no effort. But that is not the point of this blog. I want to channel my love for desserts into a passion for creating and decorating mouth-watering masterpieces. And that is what I intend to do… starting now!
