Well, I am just tickled pink to be featured on Blog Around the World today:-) Thanks Debbie for inviting me to the party:-)
Anyway, my name is Susie and this is Susie's Homemade blog. I am a SAHM of a 4 and a caretaker to my 66 year-old mother. My older daughter just started college so, there will be lots of tailgating to cook for:-) I am a foodie at heart and that's the gensis of this blog. I just wanted to write about the things that keep me sane in an otherwise crazy life. Those things are baking, cooking and gardening.
The baking thing has really taken off. It all started with a sun flower cake for my older daughter last year . Everyone loved it so much, I got 2 requests right away to make cakes. One was for my niece (which I stupidly forgot to photograph) and the a spider cake was for my nephew. Then, I took a leap of faith and made my sister-in-law's wedding cake . That was when I had an inkling that I might be good at this:-)
So, I started Susie's Homemade Etsy shop where I sell Cookie Dough Balls. These things are to die for. Cookie dough (minus the eggs so they are safe) rolled into balls and dipped in chocolate. To me, there is nothing wrong with that sentence:-) But now, I am getting requests to do cakes in the shop too and it is a dream come true! In addition, I have entered a cupcake competition and I am just having a blast. I am meeting new people (in person even) and I am starting to make some good money. All because I decided to follow my passion.
Now, I have a loooooooong way to go. However, I think this blogging thing has really given me the courage to stretch a little bit farther in this direction. Certaining farther than I ever would have on my own. So, I have to love the comment love. Keep it coming girls!! You are feeding the dream (pardon the pun:-)
