Community Through Cooking
Passion - Creativity -Playfulness
Mint & Mischief is built upon the premise of inspiring connection through the way we approach food. I look to create offerings that will help bring a smile to your face, encourage you to slow down, enjoy the moment, indulge, and rejuvenate.
I am inspired by the inherent beauty found in nature, artists & creatives, architecture, good music, and my love of traveling. The beautiful people & cultures I've had the pleasure of sharing the table with along the way, definitely influences my work regularly. Many of my creations have a splash of Filipino & global cultures, since it's something near and dear to my heart.
I have a decidedly modern boho slightly gothic vibe going for me, and many of my treats are infused with a mixture of spices, teas & Ayurvedic/healthful infusions. I concentrate on using high quality always, and organic whenever possible. I am endlessly curious, and adore testing new flavors, techniques, and trying my hand at new endeavors. Bring me your inspiration & ideas, and let us work together to create something beautiful. It is my sincere pleasure to bring a piece of my artistic vision to your table.
I feel strongly about connecting with nature, and making sure our planet is a place our children will want to inherit, so it is one of my business' core values to try and cut down as much single use plastic in my operation as possible, as well as game-planning for a majority usage of healthy power sources in my shop like an electrically driven kitchen & hopefully later solar.
On a personal note: I've been known to break into song & dance without reason. I'm endlessly curious, and like to learn new things. I adore art, music, and a solid spicy romance novel. Lure me into friendship with your book collection, your ability to grow things, creative endeavors, or just your wild dreams as you chase them down. I am a collector of crystals. (I'm actually kind of insane about crystals... If you like crystals, we should be friends!) I'm an adventure seeker though it's harder now to be as spontaneous as I'd like to be. I'm a stressed out mother to two crazy unique & weird tiny humans as well as two hilarious fur babies, and married to one exceptional dude, who we all refer to as Chad the rad dad. We met in culinary school (where I so graciously offered to help him through his baking course - he denies this to this day, and insists I was just in his way). If you want some serious knee slapping entertainment all you have to do is put us in a kitchen together and ask us a simple question on how to do something. We laugh and dance together almost every day, and he lets me get my way most of the time (probably too much) so I feel like he's a keeper.
I appreciate you stopping by and supporting my small business. It can be terrifying chasing your dreams, so your support & ongoing belief mean the world to me. Thank you.
