Hello, I'm Stacey Maupin Torres a/k/a SM Maupin, born in Queens, NY, into a family of cooks, bakers and home economic teachers. Cooking, writing about cooking and talking about cooking are passions of mine that grow and grow each day.
As caregiver to my mother, I have had more time to develop my skills, experiment with new and updated recipes and food ideas, and also launch my artisan bread business simply known as STACEY.
I'm very glad to be here among such wonderful cooks and chefs.
NOTE: My cook book, THE BAJAN'S GRANDDAUGHTER, is available in my Etsy Shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/dollladie
My ancestors - from the Caribbean, Africa, Ireland and points unknown -- I just know they cooked from the heart and its trickled down to me.
