Yes, I realized long ago that I can bake up a tasty cake, but my decorating skills are definitely lacking. […]

Wordless Wednesday: Taylor’s Kitchen

by

Sunday brunch at Taylor’s Kitchen is warm, nuanced and punctuated with charm. Not unlike the ever-changing basket of homemade pastries from Pastry Chef Jodie Chavious!
