Sweet Melissa Sundays


The idea for Sweet Melissa Sundays grew out of the incredible Tuesdays with Dorie baking group.   It is so fun to bake with bakers from around the world and share our successes and failures, our pictures and stories and our advice and support.  I love it so much, that once a week is just not enough!  Even though there are lots of great group baking events out there (Iron Cupcake, Daring Bakers and The Cake Slice) – to name some of my favorites to read about – I really want to bake my way through The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, and hope that some of you want to join me! 

Why The Sweet Melissa Baking Book?  Well, I have read some great press about the book on many baking blogs, the recipes sound amazing and I just love Melissa Murphy’s philosopy:  “I create deserts that make people feel welcome when they walk into my shop.  I love to hear them squeal with delight as they look at a beautifully decorated lemon cupcake or bite into the most deliciously perfect chocolate chip cookie.  I’m not interested in deserts that involve ten components, exotic ingredients, and structural supports.  I want to make everyone’s favorite desserts better than they’ve had them before.  Now you can too.”  The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, Introduction.  Familiar favorites with a twist – just my kind of baking.  If it is yours too – come join us and bake along.

Why Sundays?  Well, you have to admit that “Sweet Melissa Sundays” has a nice ring to it, right?  And since this baking group was modeled after the awesome Tuesday’s with Dorie, it seemed like a good fit.  AND, I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a little bit of the Sunday Blues.  Nothing like baking and blogging to chase those blues away!  And, so, there you go.

1 Response to "About"

I am the culinary manager for a chef portal that is sharing information and recipes form professionals to students. Our site is free for all professionals to join. As I travel to culinary schools around the US, I often get information and links from my students. One of them suggested your site.

I am very impressed by the content and design of you site, so I am forwarding an invitation to discuss some of the following ideas:

Collaboration on recipes to my global community
Linking our community to expand both.
Quotes to drive new original content for my site
A place to send my community for webinars and podcasts, especially for baking pastry.

If you are interested in speaking, please contact me in the US office or by email. Thank you.
