Hi, my name is Teresa.  I am a self-taught Graphic Designer and Southern Home Cook with a growing passion for Photography.  I’m deeply curious about most forms of art and have found the blogosphere and internet as a whole to be one of the richest sources of inspiration around.  I enjoy trying new things, especially unique recipes and craft projects.

When I was in high school, I had an incredible home economics teacher who taught me how to bake the cake that would become one of my family’s all-time favorites.  Each year, during the holidays, I look forward to pulling out the sheet of notebook paper I originally scribbled the recipe on.  Red Velvet Cake is still a seasonal favorite of mine and is the inspiration which continues to fuel my blog.

Red Velvet Confections is about Cooking and Creating.  It’s about me finally digging into boxes filled with recipes clipped from magazines, newspapers and from around the web, then discovering whether or not they’ll work out well if I try them in my own kitchen.  I hope that sharing the results of my culinary & creative adventures will inspire you to play around a little more in your kitchen and to make your life and the lives of your loved ones special in some simple yet fabulous way!

Please feel free to contact me any time to say hello, ask questions or offer your helpful tips and resources.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your visit!
