Make your next affair something your friends will be talking about for weeks..... Ever since I was a little girl, I have always had a passion for baking. After several successful business endeavors, I am finally blending two of my natural talents: business and baking. As a professional chef located in Texarkana, Texas, I have finally begun taking on catering events. My specialties are cupcakes, cheesecakes, and, well, all kinds of cakes. But, I'm also a talented cook and chef: a culinary school graduate with experience as a pastry chef and instructor at the local college. Above is a creation... Continue reading
I graduated from Culinary school and have worked in the Industry for the past 1 1/2 years as a Pastry Chef. I have just started my own Catering business and although I specialize in Cupcakes, Cheesecakes (sweet and savory), Decorated Sugar Cookies, Mile High Strawberry Cakes, Fruit Pies, Pastry and other delectable desserts. I also cater full menus with entrees and appetizers. I cater small and large events. Please call me about your special occasion and together we can come up with a menu that will have your guests raving for weeks. Continue reading
Hi, It was so nice to hear from you and know that your still here after my time away, I have been in Culinary School and then I started working at the same college I graduated and worked there as a Pastry Chef. It was a lot of fun but now I am going to start my own Catering business and see how that goes. I have been away so long I have forgotten how to do a blog, I tried to start another one on typepad but it's overwhelming to me lol. I have been in flour too long and not into urls and https. Your family has gotten bigger, it's been almost 2 years. I am surprised you remembered me but I remember you too. I notice Coco is still on your doggie pages. She no longer is a puppy lol I will keep in touch now that I am back on the computer. Love, Bren

Michelle, I sure love your "Gypsy Woman" and your other music you have on your blog. I love Jake's room, I have one of those hanging webbed stuffed animal holders too. I got it at IKEA... Take care, :) Bren

I think you both did a great job with your Spring Swap, I adore turquoise and brown together. The nest banner, birds, everything was just adorable. :) Bren

This banner is outstanding. The whole mantle works so well together. This looks professionally done. It looks like it came out of a high end decorating magazine. WOW! :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Yummy! Where's my peice of bread? I have that same recipe and it's delicious! But, I have never put in Pineapple or cranberries in it. Great idea. I know your going to be laughing and having fun tomorrow. I wish I could be a fly on the wall and listen to all the talk. :) Bren http://www.smalltreasures.blogspot.com/

Welcome back from your mini vacation. I love to go away but I also love to come home. That small dresser is painted so georgous. I would love to visit your shop. Maybe I can come visit on a mini vacation to your shop. :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/

I have had plans for the last 3 times that I went to Cali to visit the Rose Bowl Flea market as I have heard nothing but great things about it but everytime something happens and I can't attend. Is it as good as they say it is?? Please, say Yes!!! I am going next time. :) Bren

I woke my husband up to see that little baby laughing, I haven't heard a child laugh like that in a long, long time. So cute!! What a precious child. Happy Belated Birthday, I think you have a family that loves you dearly and what a treasure that they took the time to make you a cake and hubby to give you those beautiful flowers. :) Bren

Yooohooooo, I brought you some apricot danish pastry to try. Awww... your not home? I am just going to sit on your nice porch and wait for you. Very comfy porch I might add, love the red geraniums, they are so pretty. Might as well, take a bite of this delicious pastry, I hate for it to go to waste. Btw, I love your tissue holders esp the one with ducks and that bag is adorable. I think 2 materials would be cute too. One side one color and the other side another color. Trouble maker, aren't I? Sorry about the danish I am making another one on Sunday. Try and save you a slice then. Cya, :) Bren

Cool Rooster, I would like to make a crow like yours, but I wouldn't know where to start. I need to get in some swaps, they sound so fun. As soon as I get back from vacation I am going to do it. That quilt is amazing, the person getting that is going to absolutely love it. I cannot even imagine the time it took to make it and your right the green makes it coehesive. Wow. :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Funny blog, I am heading to Sunny Cali tomorrow to spend some time with the family and it's not going to be pretty. They are already arguing about where I am staying first. This happens when you only come out to visit every few years from Texas. I love San Diego, it's so beautiful there. My favorite place in the world is Catalina Island, I just love it but I haven't seen it since the bad fire they had. Your hilarious and I am coming back to read all your exploits soon. Have a fantastic day. :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Great blog and site, my mojo is offline right now but it gives me a chance to rest up before the next creative inspiration hits me. I can't wait to see what is going to hit you next. Have a fantastic day. :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Your totally talented, your b bags look incredible and I love your flags too. Wonderful color choices. I am just learning to sew and I wish I had 1 finger of your talent. I agree with the blogger before me when I say your site made me happy. Have a fantastic day. :) Bren http://benzy55.typepad.com/my_weblog/
