Welcome to Sugar Street

I started baking as a way to relax and forget about the stresses of life temporarily. There’s something soothing about creating treats for others to enjoy.

Before we get started, there’s a few things you should know about me:

  • I live in scenic Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, which is 5,312 feet above sea level. There is one point in the city that is exactly a mile high, so take that Denver! Many recipes are created for people who live much closer to sea level. Every recipe I post will contain directions for high altitude cooking (higher than 5,000 feet).
  • I’m a perfectionist. Martha Stewart is my role model although nothing I produce will ever be on Martha’s level because she is a professional. And she takes perfection to a whole other level. Despite this, I will share my baking fails and where I went wrong. There’s nothing wrong with divulging where I went wrong, especially if it will help others in the future.
  • Gadgets are the best. One of my favorite parts of baking and cooking is using special purpose tools. If a product makes the task easier or improves the result, it deserves special credit. Don’t be surprised if I rave about specialty tools and tricks.
  • I love learning. I’d like to hear from other bakers, cooks, and people who love food. But I have other interests too, like reading, running, and arithmetic.{Just kidding. I wanted to keep the alliteration going.) So maybe I don’t love math, but I am a science nerd.

Join me weekly as I serve up delectable desserts to my friends and family.
