Decorating whimsical sweets and savory treats has been my passion since childhood and I have been fortunate enough to spend most of my adult life doing what I love as an entrepreneurial chocolatier and event planner.

I began making festive food and edible crafts back in the 80’s and never imagined that all these years later, I’d have the opportunity to share my creations with a worldwide audience.

For years I woke up every day excited to make handmade confections for customers at my retail stores, BJaiz Yum Yum Shoppe in Louisville, Kentucky and Candy Garden Handmade Chocolates in Dayton, Ohio, and although my time spent in this sweet business was rewarding, it was physically demanding and after many years I felt the need to try something new. Fortunately that happened at a time when food blogging was becoming quite popular.

I’ve always felt that my strength was in creating new food products and wished I could just spend my days in the kitchen concocting recipes and designing food gifts instead of mass-producing chocolates. Hungry Happenings allows me to do just that.

Sharing my creativity and knowledge with you and knowing you might just be inspired to get into the kitchen to make something that will bring joy into the lives of those you love, makes me incredibly happy.
