Sunny Southern California
My name is Shannon. I live in Southern California with my 5 year old daughter Jaiden. I am very free spirited and believe in things happening for a reason. I never really had the desire to cook until I was pregnant witnh my daughter Jaiden. Suddenly sweet's were all I craved. I was addicted to the food network and submerged my self in all things foodie. I am 100% self taught. I have always been a perfectionist and I will work until it is nothing less than that. At the same time I find joy in the simple things. When my daughter was born, I was so interested in the things we put into our bodies. Since it is inevidable to keep children out of the cookie jar, I was determined that if she was gonna eat it, I was gonna make it!! So I baked, and she ate! I felt better knowing that I knew the ingredients were whole and not full of artificial this, and processed that. So it started to become apparent to me that she was obssessing over marshmallows, and chocolate covered marshmallows. Luckily, the asking was more strong around the holidays. It occurred to me, I could make marshmallows and they probably would taste better than those tacky ones you buy at your local drugstore. So I did a little research and tweaked some recipes. I came up with something so delicous, I had to put down the spatula, and give away almost the whole batch. They were soft, fluffy, and they melted in your mouth. Then the flavor ideas started flowing and Sugar Sugar Coconut was born.
Interests: my daughter, i love music, art and nature. i am definately an old soul. i love to cook and bake. my favorite thing to do on a lazy saturday is read cook bake and hang out with dog sam. we love the beach and dance and sing everywhere we are. we are outside every chance we get. california makes that easy!
