Hello and welcome to My All About Baking. A place I hope will help you to become comfortable about baking. I hope to share with you baking tips, recipes and everything about baking!
My name is Taianne. I am the oldest of 6 kids. I was born in Paris Illinois but have lived in California and Texas growing up. My dad worked for Continental Airlines in the flight kitchen. He had worked in the cooking profession all his life. My dad opened his own small restaurant along with my uncle. My first job at 15 years old was working for him. But my interest in baking was born years earlier. At 11 years old, I remember sneaking into the kitchen in the middle of the night and baking a cake for my parents anniversary.
I had a great-aunt who taught me a lot about baking. At 12 years old I went and stayed with her for a couple weeks. She lived out in the country in a farmhouse In Indiana. There wasn’t much else to do so we baked all kinds of goodies for a dinner that several relatives were expected to attend. Cookies, cakes and even some candy. A meal is just not complete without dessert!
At 17, I married and began having children. Three in all. While my children were growing up we could not live on just my husband’s income so I went back to school and became a Registered Nurse. When they were little I still baked but when I joined the work force there was no time for baking. But now at the age of 60 I have slowed down and have the time for the baking I love. I have even tried new things I have never tried before. I love jelly filled donuts but they just don’t make them they use to. Now I can only find them with white icing. Too sweet for me. I remember when I was young they had sugar on the them. Now that’s the way they should be made. My first attempt. Don’t they look yummy?
