Hi, thanks for visiting...Well,when I met my husband some 16 yrs. ago, he had an eight yrs. old son, so I had a ready made family. I've always taught whether it was school children in the classroom or adults. Now I have a little Carriage House where I do assessments and individualized instruction with children who are having difficulty in school.It's always a puzzle to figure out what is holding them back, and I enjoy watching them as they grow in skills and confidence. Some have labels and some don't, but I never met a person who couldn't learn given the right conditions.
When my mother passed away a few years ago, I found myself suddenly drawn to cooking and baking. She was well known around the city for her delicious fudge, so when I started making the truffles, friends said I was following in my mother's footsteps. As occasions started popping up from bridal showers to anniversaries to the annual running…

She was well known around the city for her delicious fudge, so when I started making the truffles, friends said I was following in my mother's footsteps. As occasions started popping up from bridal showers to anniversaries to the annual running of the Kentucky Derby party, the truffles made an appearance. "A little bit of heaven" was the way one party goer described them
and so "Dreambites" was born. I decided to put them in a beautiful box and Voila-perfect for your child's teacher,or just a wonderful friend or neighbor.
I remember Paula Deen(I love her & Ina too)said she turned to baking to help her with the grief over losing her mother...and I know it's helped me too. I love losing myself rolling each little ball and then decorating with the ganache so that each one is just a little different.It's soothing to the soul...Enjoy your visit
