So my first food blog. This isn't the most labor intensive/challenging good I've made, but it was fun! I love making sugar cookies and decorating them all ways. A favorite is too ice them with meringue icing and "paint" on them using food coloring. But alas, these are not those. These are sugar cookies for Valentine's Day this past year. I iced them and decorated them.

Introduction to My Blog

My name is Laurel May. I live in California Central Valley area. I have have 5 brothers and sisters and I love my family a ton. I am the penultimate child.

Along with my little sister, Lacey, I will be opening a bakery in the area in 2-5 years. Currently I am attending College to receive education in business so Lacey and I will know what we are doing in the business world.

Baking is my passion. I bake all natural and specialize in cakes, cookies and candy. My sister is marvelous at breads , cake and candy. We will make an excellent team someday. I don't only want to bake for profit. I will bake because it is what I love. My sister and I will open our bakery up for ministry opportunities as well, such as feeding the hungry kids on our hometown streets.

I love seeing people when they eat. Or when people get excited over something like dinner. What could be a routine meal, might turn into a marvelous experience with what we call food. If the cook loves what they are doing and loves people and their could be wonderful.
I believe in food. But I also believe in exercise, fitness and diet. My Mom raised us kids to be healthy and that is how I intend to live.

I learned a lot of what I know from my Mother, Violet. A wonderful cook, she always encouraged us in the kitchen and I am entirely grateful to her. My Dad, Ted, has been a great taste tester over the years.

My family and friends are great supporters of this endeavor and Lacey and I will continue to work toward this dream.
