About Alley

Hi, my name is Alley, and I am the luckiest girl in the world! I am a stay at home mom to my beautiful daughter, Claire, my handsome son, Aiden, and housewife to my charming and wonderful husband, Matty, who spoils me and treats like a princess!

I’m from Iowa, born and raised. I would love to attend culinary school some day, but as of now I have two small children and being a stay at home mommy and housewife is of utmost importance to me. However, I haven’t let that stop me from learning, instead I have taught myself to cook and bake!

 Other than baking and cooking I also love to scrapbook and do all kinds of crafts! I love meeting new people, making new friends, and trying new things!

When it comes to cooking, I love hearty, family-style comfort food. I do gourmet every now and then, but most of the time good old fashioned home cooking is what makes it onto the dinner table.

When it comes to baking, I shy away from boxed mixes and pre-packaged convenience foods. I’m a scratch baker and proud of it. Nothing beats the flavor of baked goods made with quality ingredients! I started with ZERO skill, and now I can say I’ve had the privilege of making quite a few paid orders from cupcakes to cookies to cakes for all occasions. If I can learn to do it, so can you!

I can’t wait to share my recipes with you!
