About Us

So much about baking is love. It’s not only nourishing the body, but the soul with the warmth of sharing time with our family and friends.

Have the best bakeware makes cooking stress-free, produces results and saves time. And that’s what we all want more of, right?

We’ll continue to put bakeware and kitchen appliances to the test and pass on our experience and research here.

I love learning about produce, ingredients and the variety of foods we have available to experiment with. I especially enjoy the seasonality of fruits and vegetables and cooking with them while they’re freely available and at their juiciest and most delicious.

Favorite times in the kitchen

Wonderful memories and I love that my grand-daughter Ally can’t wait to come visit Nonna to do the same thing now.

I treasure the many lessons I learned in our big, warm, colorful kitchen growing up. My love of cooking starting alongside Mom in the kitchen.

Standing on a chair to reach the kitchen bench and the mixing bowl with the wooden spoon. Carefully mixing the egg and milk into the flour mix to produce a deliciously gooey texture. Licking my sticky fingers once the cookies had gone into the oven.

The smell of cakes baking in the oven, temptingly close to being taken out ready to cool. Spreading the icing and decorating the ‘little cakes’. The big decision is should jelly beans or ‘hundreds and thousands’ decorate my cupcakes.

My Nonna was the ‘jam maker’ and my aunty followed closely in those large footsteps. The quintessential home cooks. In the kitchen, side by side, my Aunt and Nonna always ‘cooked up a storm’ for the family and visitors.

Just hearing footsteps walking up the stairs of their house was enough to trigger the baking of the next batch of pumpkin scones or pikelets. The smell of fresh baking, just about to come out of the oven was the greeting we kids got as we bounced through the door. The scones and pikelets were always teamed with homemade jam. Depending on the season, cumquart, marmalade, strawberry, or my favorite, rosella jam. The fruits were always garden fresh.

When I stayed over casseroles, hearty stews, and delicious roasts that were the order of the day.

My mom was the ‘dessert queen’ with utterly delicious ‘mouth-watering’ creations. Our family was treated almost every night of the week to mom’s experiments. The ‘golden staircase’ tart, cheesecakes, ‘strawberry souffle’ and ‘chiffon blush’ are standouts in my memory. And the homemade Monty Carlos. How could I forget those?

But it wasn’t all sweets.

Fresh vegs and fruit were very important in our household too. Dad worked most of his life at the markets where growers would bring their produce for distribution throughout the state. We often had new and interesting fruit and veg that had been developed, or newly introduced to the country, at home to try. I was so lucky to grow up in a home filled with food prepared by a loving cook and the opportunity to experience different foods.

There was always a home-cooked, deliciously rich, fruitcake in the pantry. Family get-togethers and celebrations meant a feast of home baking.

And so, I grew up loving cooking, growing in my knowledge and skills with a thirst to learn more. How could I not love baking?

I believe it’s our responsibility, and our privilege to care for our bodies and nurture our loved ones.

Thanks for joining us and Happy baking!
