Our Story

Be passionate about baking and cooking and enter it with Love.”  At the age of 22, I began to cook because I had to.  I was a single parent and had the awesome responsibility of caring for my baby boy - my gift from God.  I was dedicated to making sure that he received the very best in life.  Thus, I began cooking and baking.  I began to research and study food and its nutritional value.  It was an accomplishment for me to cook fresh wholesome home-cooked meals for my son instead of purchasing fast food.  I believe healthy nutrition is the most important factor for maintaining and keeping good health.  Healthy nutrition is eating a healthy balanced meal from all the basic food groups.  Thus, cooking for me became fun, pleasurable, and stimulating.

I am as passionate about baking and cooking as I was 24 years ago.  Today, I’m a licensed Culinary Professional trained in a range of culinary techniques, discipline in the workplace, and professionalism.  I studied at the Community College of Baltimore County, MD.  I maintain certification in ServSafe from the National Restaurant Association.  I had the opportunity to work side by side with Sylvain Bortolini, the Executive Pastry Chef at MGM National Harbor.  During my travels, I had the opportunity to participate in a meet and greet with Ron Ben-Israel, Israeli Pastry Chef and Executive Chef, and owner of Rob Ben-Israel Cakes in New York City.  Now, it’s time to be at the forefront of creating an unforgettable culinary experience for you.  

I bring a deep-rooted passion for baking with a strong desire to excel.   Thus, today, I am the owner of Pure Sweet Indulgence Bakery and Café.  Your experience will be exquisite and refined yet solace and soothing.  Offering authentic seasonal, fresh ingredients and preparing everything from scratch.
