Delectable Desserts

This post is not about a recipe (although you will get one)…

This post is not about food (although I will tease you)…

This post is about friendship…

and re-inventing yourself…

and finding your passion…

and the power of friendship and networking.

It’s about having a cup of coffee 0r a glass of wine with a dear friend and asking “what’s next”?

In the last few years, my life had taken a turn in the path and I needed to find my new passion.

That is the conversation that my dear friend, Dotti and I had not too long ago.

We had both left our corporate positions which we held near and dear to our psyche, our self esteem and our reason for living….

only to search for something else…

something that excites us…

the next thing that we would hold near and dear to our hearts…

My passion poured into this blog and bringing you new recipes…

and inspiration to try something new.

Selfishly, I needed to tackle a new creative endeavor like food photography….

and everyday I’m learning.

It excites me…and challenges me.

Dotti, on the other hand, along with her friend Mary had a relationship in their previous career lives decided to collaborate on a journey…

making cookies…

and OH! the cookies they make…

Mary and Dotti tapped into their ethnic history and brought alive the passion of baking…

and now made a business of it!


Today I celebrate my girlfriends…

Today I celebrate new beginnings…

and the “next chapter”…

and the honesty of friendship…

and the networking….

and the “attagirls” as we figure it out along the way.

We are all connected…

and that’s what makes life so dang sweet!

Dotti has graciously offered to share her “Peaches cookie” recipe with you. Don’t feel like baking? You can get yummy, lovingly made cookies for a party, wedding or special occasion – contact Delectable Desserts at

      Tina –
      You are so right! Who would have guessed what blogging has done to our world. I used to work for our local newspaper who featured food stories and recipes once a week. The blog-o-sphere has changed all that!

    Thank you for showcasing Dotti’s beautiful bakery. She shared your website with me and I have prepared some of your meals.

    Your photography is beautiful as well as your message about friendship and life and the paths we choose and the paths we don’t choose but end up on.

    I love Dotti and I am so proud of her lastest accomplishment.
