About Me

Hi, my name is Luciana. I am a tooth decay fighting dentist by day, sweets making baker by night. :) Ironic? Nah, as long as you eat in moderation and brush your teeth afterwards, it should not be a problem :) I reside in a small town in Southern Indiana.

My interest in baking started when I was pregnant with my daughter. I would get very strong cravings for sweets, mainly cakes, at odd times of the day and night. I would have to send my poor husband to the grocery store to get something to satisfy my weird cravings. Then I decided that instead of buying so many cakes (and driving ourselves into bankruptcy from all the extra spending), I should bake them! So I started trying my hand at different recipes, and fell in love with it. Now I just can't wait to try new recipes all the time!

Now whenever I get an itch to bake, I whip out my handy-dandy mixer and bake to my heart's content! The staff at my dental office really loves to see me bring in treats (in the beginning they were more like my guinea-pigs/taste-testers) and it helps to not have to eat everything on my own.

Now 2 children later, I have enjoyed trying many recipes I've accumulated and saved through books and websites/blogs, and can't wait to keep trying more. My goal is to instill a love/passion for cooking into my children so they see that making food at home is fun and does not have to be this horrible monster!
