Welcome to my blog!
I am a (former) Registered Dietitian turned baker/pastry chef.
So a little about me. I graduated with a bachelor of science degree majoring in dietetics May 2011, completed a clinical dietetic internship August 2013, and passed my RD exam to become registered as a dietitian November 2013. After working as a dietitian I began to realize it was not really the path for me. I tried finding jobs that would interest me and I just always felt like none of them were…right. On a whim I started working in a bread bakery and that’s when I really discovered my passion for working with food. And that’s when everything sort of clicked into place. After working in the bread bakery for 4 years I left for another bakery. This time an actual bakery where I could hone my skills as a baker and pastry chef. And that’s when everything REALLY clicked into place. I get to bake and create to my hearts content. And I couldn’t be happier. My ultimate goal is to have my own funky rainbow bakery one day but for now I am perfectly happy where I’m at.
So I thought it would be fun to share my adventures in the kitchen (hence, the name “f00dventures”).

I have published several recipe ebooks, my favorite being my 5 minute donut recipe ebook (which happens to be a FREE download). My donuts are really what put me on the map and if you follow me on social media, you’ll see my obsession with that recipe has not wavered. I still use my donut recipe on a daily basis so I can enjoy donuts all the live long day. More info about all of my ebooks on my “recipe ebooks” tab.
