About Julia

Born during one of my more introspective periods spanning several weeks away from the heat and hubbub of ovens and mixers, my site Recipes for a Sweet Life attempts to capture my core - what stirs my soul, warms my heart, and makes me jump out of bed with renewed vigor each day. Sure, I’m all of the titles in my bio - pastry chef, food writer, food stylist, cookbook author - but what really moves me is creating unforgettable, ah-ha experiences for the special people in my life. For me, there are few things as gratifying as seeing guests’ eyes light up at the first glimpse of a spectacular wedding cake - or the satisfied grin on the face of the child who stole the first taste on his fingertip. I share of myself best through food and entertaining, so that’s what I offer you here: my recipes, or rather my prescriptions in the very broad sense, for making life its absolute sweetest. Throughout Recipes for a Sweet Life, you’ll find a treasure trove of party ideas, recipes (in the literal sense), and entertaining tips that I hope will warm your heart, as well as the hearts of those you love. With this taste, go forward, feast on what you find, and, in the process, live life sweetly!
