About Me

I am a wife and mother of three beautiful children.  I live on a lake in west central Minnesota and am loving life!  I am an entrepreneur and started my first business in 2009 and am currently working on expanding it to offer even more services to a larger target market.  My business is Elite Scheduling Services, LLC at www.eliteschedulingservices.com.  I am also a freelance writer, author of Mom University: The Student Guide and a baker.  Baking for me is like therapy, my worries and fears seem to melt away as I mix and measure my ingredients. Baking is a science, yet it's also a creative art.  I love to play with the recipes and create new treats out of old favorites. 

How did I come up with the name, The Dessert Mom, you ask? I wanted to combine two of my favorite things, being a mom and baking, in one blog; so The Dessert Mom was born. This blog will be filled with humorous stories about my life as a mom, entrepreneur, writer and baker, and it will be sprinkled with recipes for some of the tastiest treats I have found too. But for me dessert is more than just food, it's something you look forward to, it's something you cherish. Dessert is a vacation, a dip in the lake, a much needed break, a massage, a stroll on the beach and a brand new magazine. Dessert is your wedding day, your honeymoon, your precious babies and the love of your life. I'm an ambitious, goal oriented person and I'm determined to have my cake and eat it too. I want the guy, the house, the kids, the job, the vacation, the crazy life and the dessert.   Grab a cup of Joe, sit back and relax and The Dessert Mom will 'try' to provide a few minutes of entertainment each week. Thank you very much for stopping by!
