How would you describe your culinary style?
I like to cook food that people like to eat. It’s as simple as that. My blog focuses a lot on the sweet stuff, but that’s not all that we eat around here! I try to cook tasty, healthy food for my family, and we eat the sweet treats in moderation. I give away a lot of what I make for my blog. 

What is the main source of inspiration for your recipes?
Most of the time, I try to cook things my husband, my daughter and I all enjoy – so I guess they’re my biggest inspiration. I am also really inspired by a lot food blogs out there! And since I started blogging, I am so proud and happy to call some of them my friends! 

If you could have one food while stranded on a desert island, what would it be? 
That’s SO hard to answer! If it had to be JUST one thing, I’d have to go for something that’s salty AND sweet because I couldn’t bear to be stranded without either flavor – Fudgy Brownies with Bacon, maybe? :) 

For someone new to your blog, which recipe do you recommend they try first? 
If you want something savory, try the Spinach & Bacon Quiche. If you want a sweet treat, you must try the Moist Carrot cake! My Homemade Boursin is also a very popular recipe among my readers. It’s really easy to fix, and great for parties!

What is your ultimate guilty food pleasure? 
Anything deep fried – anything from chicken wings to candy bars! Yes, I know it’s not good for me. I don’t eat deep-fried food every day, but how I wish I could!
And cheese!
Oh, and condensed milk!

Define Yummly.
Yummly is food that makes you close your eyes and go “Mmmmmmmmmmm…” after just one bite!
