Eat to live, not live to eat.
Thank you for visiting the About & Contact page and your interest in the Teenie Cakes journal. I’m a high-school sweetheart wife, aspiring gardener, corgi-parent, culinary enthusiast, and photographer (among many things) and have carved out a little piece of the blogosphere to share just some of my loves through my writing and photography. The Teenie Cakes journal began themed about cupcakes and muffins in 2007. I had notions that one day I’d open my own cupcakery and put that business degree to use with my enthusiasm for culinary fare.
“Teenie Cakes” is a name my Husband called my mini baked treats (pulling from my name “Cristina” aka “Tina” = “Teenie”) hence Teenie Cakes!
Since one can only eat so many cupcakes, the site evolved to include a variety of other recipes with the following in mind:
- Using a lot of fresh, seasonal produce both from my edible garden and markets – and using extra virgin olive oil when possible;
- Discover and use healthier eating and food preparation alternatives;
- Experimenting with ingredients, flavor combinations and techniques that are new to me;
- Portion control presentation and servings for dishes and desserts when possible;
- Portraying tasty, beautiful food through writing and food photography.
Unless otherwise noted, the photography on Teenie Cakes was photographed and styled by me, myself, and I. Please contact me for terms on images for either Web OR print usage and any content reproduction. The photography and images are copyrighted with all rights reserved. Some of my work is available for commercial use through a global stock agency – please see the photography section for more details. More of my photography can viewed on my portfolio, CristinaAMoore.com.
With a BSBA and having worked for a myriad of Fortune 500 companies I enjoy this creative outlet bringing together my loves for both technical and creative projects. The journal is also a way for me to share recipes that I develop, experiment with, try and test from other reputable and published sources – plus some culinary adventures experienced in bakeries, restaurants, festivals, wine tastings, etc. I’m also currently a graduate student, chipping away at that degree I should’ve started years ago.
I want to draw you in by the title of the recipes and for you to eat with your eyes when you discover what I’m sharing and presenting to you. I want to entice you to want to taste it, make it and enjoy sharing it with the people you care about too.
