Movin' On Up!

I moved to Philadelphia almost 7 years ago to pursue my doctorate in Sociology, and I've been toiling away at that goal ever since. In a strange turn of events, I recently let all of that go to turn my time and attention to food full-time. It wasn't a hard decision once I realized that nearly all of my joy lies in the kitchen instead of in an office. I figured it was about time to share this good news with all of you. Cooking and baking have been life-long loves inspired by my mother, while photography and writing about food are more recent developments that Foodaphilia has given me a chance to showcase.

So here I am. Letting you all know that Foodaphilia is more alive than ever and that I want to make you something to eat! Working out of a friend's commercial kitchen in Northern Liberties, I'm excited to be taking orders for sweet treats of all kinds. You want two dozen of my favorite chocolate chip cookie? They can be yours. The Elvis, made with banana chocolate chip cake and peanut butter frosting sound more your speed? You can have that, too. Anything your heart desires, or any recipe you've seen on my blog can be yours, and it will bring me joy to make it for you.

I hope to have a few menus up here soon highlighting some of my most popular desserts and cookies. Until then, wish me luck, and don't skip dessert!

    Congrats on the big decision, E. I know how tough it can be to step away from all those years in academia to pursue what you really love. But if it feels right to you, it's the right thing to do.
