I am a homeschooling mother of 4 awesome kids & wife to a super swell guy ... all of whom love to eat and love to eat well. Needless to say we were a family made in heaven ... I love to cook. These guys are my at-home tasting panel & they are eager to try anything.
It is my joy to bring wholesome, homemade cooking to your home either by teaching you, or, if you are too busy, making it for you.
If you don't see what you want, send me a message and tell me what you are looking for ...

"Joyce bakes some of the most delicious baked goods a person could ever hope to gobble... I've been especially wowed by her ability to make delectable gluten-free goodies. Since coming off of gluten about two years ago, I've found there to be dearth of gluten-free baked goodness out there (I'd started to think that gluten-free was synonymous with flavor-free). I've sampled some of Joyce's, and one can't even tell that they are gluten-free-- just pure yummy-ness. If you are looking to acquire new skills in this realm (baking in general-- not only gluten-free!), she is your gal. She's also super-fun, knowledgeable, and really funny :) Every person I know who's taken a class of any sort from her has loved her teaching style, and has learned a great deal."

"These cookies are HUGE! And have CHUNKS of chocolate! I could only eat half at a sitting, but oh! so delicious! My kids know that I have emergency chocolate to keep my stress levels down - oh boy was this better than my regular stash :)"

"I had the pleasure of eating a piece of Joyce's carrot cake for breakfast last week. Yep, that's right- breakfast. She brought it to me before my sons class and it smelled and looked so delectable that there was NO WAY I was going to save it for later! This piece of cake was perfect in every way. Dense enough to have the appropriate carrot cake texture without being heavy, moist and tender, it even held together beautifully when slicing into it with the fork instead of crumbling and turning into a mess. The icing was classic cream cheese, not too sweet, smooth, creamy and delicious. The only complaint I had about the cake was that there wasn't more!
While I haven't personally taken cooking classes with Joyce, I have seen her in action. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anybody who was looking for instruction. She is patient, non-threatening, knowledgeable and lots of fun!"

"I am very picky about the type of Chocolate chip cookies I would actually recommend to someone, and by far Joyce's Chocolate Chip cookies are at the top of my list.
It's a real treat to look forward to these delicious morsels of goodness every year.
I am very pleased to see Joyce opening her cooking up to the rest of the world, and can't begin to describe the level of awesome that is her baking. So don't just sit there and debate on whether to sign up for these things. Do it, experience the results, then come back here and comment."

"I ordered the Decadent Fudge Cake for my husband's birthday. Oh my word! It was thick, rich, and chocolate! There had to be more than 3 kinds of chocolate in there - it was delicious. Warmed up a slice and had it with tea - amazing comfort food!"
