Hi SWEET Friends.
I’m Chrissy and I’m so thrilled you are here!
It goes without saying that I LOVE to bake, so it would be silly to reiterate that to you. But what else do I love??? When I am not baking, I am soaking up my family. I am happily sharing my life with my husband, Chris. If you’re thinking “…oh, how cute! Chris & Chrissy!” you’re right there with the majority of folks who meet us for the first time. Chris is the VP of Network Solutions at a technology consulting firm – where he is also a Partner…so he’s my “tech guy”. In addition to my best half, I have two children: 15 year old daughter, Paisley – she is wise beyond her years, loves animals and enjoys competing in rodeos, and 9 year old son, Deegan – he has a heart as deep as the ocean, hates homework, and can usually make anyone laugh. Our family also has a Golden Retriever: Dexter. I don’t think there is ONE person who has met Dexter that hasn’t fallen in love with him.
Now you know my family….my core! If I am not with my family, you can bet I am enjoying the company of good friends. That goes hand-in-hand with good food AND good drinks! Time spent with friends is usually overflowing with laughter and I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
I also love to travel. I love the ocean but really just enjoy traveling anywhere – especially new places that are just waiting for me to make memories there! I LOVE finding cute coffee shops and trying something local – no chains!! The furthest land and biggest cultural difference I have experienced: Turkey. My favorite place on Earth (thus far in my travels): Hawaii – most specifically, North Shore of Oahu. Bucket list travels: France (for the champagne, of course! J ), Greece – hello Santorini!, Tahiti – cocktails on the beach, 13 Colonies – I love America and I love history!
.Generally speaking, I am known for my quick wit. Baking-wise, I am known for my apple crisp or Dutch Apple Pie. For as long as I can remember, baking has been a passion of mine. Oddly enough, it did not stem from watching my mother or grandmother bake as I grew up, but I have always enjoyed bringing ingredients together to create a sweet treat. As family and friends would request the apple dish – along with many other sweet treats – I knew that baking was to become my legacy rather than just my favorite past time. I don’t boast about creating the most picturesque sweets. There is a saying that we eat with our eyes first. That is true, however, flavor and quality create more of memory than sight. And there’s also that saying that the quickest way to the heart is through the tummy – BINGO!!!
