  3. I love your blog. It is very user friendly and a great idea. Everything looks so appetizing. I am a new French Patisserie in Eugene, Oregon. I was wondering if I could be featured on your blog. I want to share my passion for desserts and delicacies. I have been inspired by my mother who is an amazing baker. She taught me that you can make amazing creations using basic, yet delicious ingredients and a pinch of passion. Now it is my turn to share my passion with you. My mother always says;” A dessert is a delicious treat but is much more than that. It brings people together” Thank you so much in advance!
