I love desserts. I always have. One of my fondest memories is sitting on the rug in front of the sink in my Aunt’s kitchen stirring a huge pot of chocolate for Peanut Butter Balls. But I also grew up helping them cook as well. I was pinching pierogies as a child, as well as making Cocoa Krispy Treats. So I’ve always loved doing it all.
So I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. Well I’m a 30-something dessert lover living in Philly. I’m a huge sports fan and I love to shop, cook, bake, watch sports, movies, travel, and attend food & wine festivals. But most of all, I love cake. Birthday cake. Cupcakes. Buttercream frosting. As you’ll see when you read about my Cupcake Excursions, I don’t like that whippy whipped cream-like frosting. I want the good stuff – with butter and sugar. And please – be sure you give me the corner with lots of flowers. The more frosting, the better.
I started this blog back in 2009 for really no reason at all. I thought it would be therapeutic to have a way to express myself and I really didn’t expect anyone to read it. But I started meeting people and networking and the rest is history. This is just something fun that I love to do, so I don’t put pressure on myself to knock out a post everyday and do this, that and the other thing. I post when I have something that I want to share with my readers and that’s what makes it fun for me.
I’ve met so many amazing people since I’ve started one curly fry in a box of the regular, and I’m always looking to make new friends! One of my fellow Philly food bloggers (say that 5 times in a row fast!) is Aly over at Cooking In Stilettos. We met through Sunny Anderson’s blog and it’s been so much fun building a friendship with her! I love that we have a lot in common and she’s a fellow food & wine festival lover!
I leave you with this:
