Hi, I'm Erica.
I'm a New Yorker, former TV producer and now a Texan stay at home mom. Nothing has been as challenging as making the transition from working mom to staying home all while working on my Texas drawl, but a fresh baked cookie does help. Who needs alcohol when you can have a crepe cake?
I bake to keep my sanity, to keep me going and to keep my out of control sweet tooth satisfied! I bake what I love and what I love varies from bread, to cakes to cookies. Basically a full out, uninhibited love of gluten and carbs! I love the American classics like chocolate chip cookies, but I also love throwing in Asian ingredients into well loved bakes. (Ube Tres Leches Cake Anyone?)
After a long day of wrangling kids, helping with homework, cooking and cleaning, (Geez, I sound like I just time traveled from the 1950’s ad for dish soap) Mama needs her fix!
This my way of adding some sweetness to a life that isn't always a piece of cake. And celebrating all those sweet and sour mommy moments that happen in between. Thanks for visiting!
