About Me

| |

Welcome to my home on the World Wide Web. I'm Michelle and more commonly known these days as MaSheddy. That's me and my lovely ladybug Nia. She is my helper in the kitchen and wishes to make everyone aware of that fact. She enjoys trying out new recipes with me and is blatantly honest with her feedback. That's one of the things that I can truly appreciate...from the mouths of babes!

I have not always been so daring in the kitchen and this evolution has been a very late development, but I'm enjoying every moment of it. Every successful recipe, every failed recipe, every burn on my hand, each drop of blood (well maybe not blood) sweat and tear motivates me to keep going. I always loved to entertain and have dinner parties, but I would stick to a limited few dishes that I had mastered or new ones that were effortless and I would enlist my attendees to bring a dish.

After some evaluation, I decided that I really wanted my daughter to have fond memories of being in the kitchen with me and being able to say 'my mom makes the best beef Bolognese' and 'I love to decorate cakes with my mom.' You see, so that's my motivating factor. That little more than pint sized very intelligent, witty, loving and beautiful little girl.

So as I have evolved, so has my palette and while I wouldn’t be quick to classify myself as a true foodie (there's lots of stuff I'm just never going to like), I have transformed for a picky eater to being more open to trying new dishes. Aside from cooking, baking has also become a sort of obsession for me and I am in love with decorating cakes. Who know that a world of fondant, gum paste and butter cream awaited me.

I plan to revise this section in the near future, until then I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back for new recipes and ideas.
