About me

I’ve loved cooking ever since I can remember. The very first thing my mom let me make, back when I was really little, was Jello. She poured in the boiling water, then the ice water, and then she handed me the wooden spoon and let me stir and stir until all the ice cubes melted away and disappeared. And I was hooked.

I like cooking savory food as much as I enjoy baking. I also like to write, and so a blog about cooking, and especially baking, seemed like a natural progression. Oh, and did I mention? I also enjoy a fine cocktail or craft ale from time to time.

Outside of the kitchen, I have a few hives full of honeybees that, if I’m lucky and they’re happy, keep me supplied with absolutely the best honey – not bad for living in the middle of a busy city.

I do work full-time outside the home, and so all of this is definitely a hobby for me.

Oh, and lastly, I am a rabid New England sports fan: Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins, in that order.

I hope you enjoy my musings and recipes and photos. Please share your thoughts either by leaving a comment or emailing me at buicupcakes@comcast.net.

    I remember making jello too – quite a fascination when you’re knee-high to a grasshopper. It was nice to meet you at RMHD – look forward to working together again. Can’t wait to try these godiva choc cupcakes! Janet

    Fantastic Irish Coffee Cupcakes! Moist and flavorful with a sweet icing. Very pleasing to the eye especially with the chocolate covered bean on top.
