profile about me CCS About

Hi! I am so glad you are here!

My name is Anna and I am the creator, writer and photographer behind this blog.

I am a wife and a mom, head-over-heels in love with my Hubby and totally amazed at the wonders of being a mom to three little ones.

Here is my story:

 Ladies, I found my Prince Charming!

Just like every little girl, I had my dream of someday finding my Prince Charming. I was told numerous times he doesn’t exist, that it’s just a fairy tale. Boy, was this person wrong! I found my Prince Charming and I try to appreciate him everyday. My Hubby and I met when we both least expected it. It has been the biggest adventure of our lives! We try to enjoy it every day, but sometimes the kiddos manage to take over the household and it’s sprinkles, glitter and blocks everywhere!

I consider them my biggest supporters and my inspiration for everyday. Nothing I do would be possible without them.

 We love veggies!

No, really! We do! My daughter will tell you what is her favorite snack: baby carrots! They can eat a whole bag in no time. Salad is highly requested here. Fruit is probably the first thing that lands in our shopping cart. We also try to grow our own veggies and herbs.

I am not a professional baker.

Baking is my adult-life hobby. As a child, I was never interested in what was going on in the kitchen. But I always enjoyed writing. I wrote several mini-novels in high school and won few contests here and there. While in college, I discovered the joys of cooking from scratch and most importantly – the joys of baking. As soon as I start mixing ingredients in the bowl, I’m all giddy! Tasting my sweet creations melts my heart. And others too. icon smile About Now, I write about them.

The very first dessert I ever made was cheesecake! I know, sounds like I grabbed the big bull by it’s horns, and yes, it did have a crack… but… it was delicious because my then-future Hubby loved it! And he knows cheesecake. icon smile About

I started this blog in 2011, just few months after our first son was born. Through the whole pregnancy, I did not bake at all and banned the sugar from our house. All I wanted to eat was spicy meaty dishes! icon smile About After Junior was born, my craving for baking returned with such a force, that I baked and baked for days. I was already a big fan of baking blogs and with the encouragement of my Hubby, I decided to share my baking adventures and explorations with the World.

Crunchy Creamy Sweet was born.

I hope to inspire and encourage you to pull out your mixing bowls and start creating! There is so much to explore in the world of baking and cooking from scratch! Let’s do it together!

I would love to hear from you!

  1. What a nice bio! Your children are very adorable and cute, Anna, and lucky to have a loving mother like you who can not only bake, but is a great writer also.

  2. Your bio sounds like a page from my life. Great site and I love to cook and was born to bake also!!

  4. Hi Anna

    It seems like your posting for caramel sauce dated 10-28-2011 comments are closed.

    I was wondering if I could add some of this caramel sauce to your buttercream frosting, if so, how much do you think I could add to make caramel buttercream frosting.

    • Hi Jackie! I promise I will go through the old posts and open the comment threads :)

      Yes, you can add the caramel sauce to the buttercream. I did that before. Start with 1/2 cup and adjust to taste.
      I will also say that Italian buttercream is much better (my recipe is still to come). Just a suggestion.
      Hope this helps!

  5. I saw your blog mentioned on Recipe Girl, and thought I’d drop by. I love the variety of your recipes. Will stop back again soon.

  10. I just discovered you through pinterest, love your stuff and this bio is so amazing with all the pictures of your kids. Too cute. I was hoping to contact you about joining your chocolate board as @joyofkosher – hope to join you.

  11. Lovely bio! Adorable kids. I married my prince charming too, and we had 3 kids – 2 boys and a girl. I wish I could have blogged when my kids were little, but in the early 90s the internet was just getting started. How things have changed! {{HUGS}}
