Hi there! If we aren’t already friends, let me introduce myself. My name is Liz and put simply: I love to bake. I grew up in southern Missouri helping my mom bake and decorate sugar cookies for the holidays and watching my Mima bake the most delicious peach cobblers and banana creme pies, stealing little nibbles of spare pie crust that got left behind on the counter. After over a decade teaching elementary school I was ready for a career change and decided to pursue this passion.

I use simple, whole ingredients and use organic ingredients whenever possible. I believe that dessert can be healthy and wholesome while also feeling like a treat, and I love living an active lifestyle in Tahoe that includes skiing, running, hiking and yoga. I hope I can make something delicious for you!
