About

I have been a Clinical Case Manager, a volleyball coach,  a retail associate, a volunteer coordinator, a health educator, a substitute teacher, a homemaker, a baker’s assistant, a regular assistant, a factory worker, an entrepreneur, and been unemployed, just to name a few.  I have been great at some of those things, and not so great as well.  But I have always been a student.

I am a “student” of the art of cooking and baking.  It’s my passion, well, one of them at least.  I know that’s a little clichéd, but it’s true.  Like most people I have little to no official training in the culinary arts (but I am ServSafe certified).  I just get stuff from watching TV, or reading things in books, or on-line, or in magazines.  It’s kinda the old school way of doing things.  The closest thing that I’ve done which could qualify as “official” training is that I did take a class once at Zingerman’s (luv them!) in their Bake! program.  I still use some of their recipes (with some modifications).

What I try to do is simply make good food that I can be proud of.  Now everything don’t always turn out the way I want.  But that’s understandable because there is a good deal of trial and error with cooking and baking.  I hope this forum can be a place where I can share what I’ve learned, and also give folks a chance to do the same.

Jereme is owner and executive pastry chef of Daisy Cakes specialty cakery.

      Right now, things are in a state of flux. Still trying to nail down another location. But there are a couple of possibilities out there!

    Sounds like you have Ann Arbor/Michigan roots? There’s nothing like stopping by Zingerman’s after a long day at class! Your photos are enticing. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Jereme – loving the blog. And drooling over your background pic. Looks like you’re a Michigan native like me 🙂 I used to love to go up to Ann Arbor on the weekends ~ Even though I went to OSU for school (much cheaper tuition) – I’ve always been a Wolverine’s girl ^_^
