the sweet bee sting

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!
4:21 PM

Not meaning to reiterate what our sidebar sums up oh-so-nicely about us, I'll get straight to the point and introduce the three ladies that make up The Sweet Bee Sting...

Kristina is a 24 year old jack-of-all-trades assistant editor for a small scholarly publisher in Michigan, and graduate of WSU with dual degrees in Anthropology and English. She's traveled the world, having conquered the Colosseum, and is currently settled in a quaint and cozy apartment in Ferndale, Michigan. Plotting to take over the world one book at a time, she enjoys Greek yogurt, Luke's Diner-esque cups of java, Italian salutations, riding her bike in the summertime and running around in her Wellingtons at night.

Mary, also 24 years of age, graduated with two degrees in Culinary Arts, one of which involves pastries. Miss Mary has also traveled the world -- where she has spent her time making googly eyes at French men -- and currently works as a child-herder for an elementary school in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. She idles away much of her free time day dreaming about Daniel Day-Lewis and watching film noir for hours on end. Mary enjoys washing dishes, devouring movies, power-reading romance novels and teaching the children that she works with that 'no' really does mean 'no'.

Cristina is a 22 year old student that is on the verge of graduating from WSU with a degree in Slavic Studies, focusing on the languages and histories of Slavic cultures. She works at a local independent record store and spends much of her free time watching the Antiques Road Show and crocheting blankets, scarves and hats for her friends and family. She enjoys visiting the Burton Theatre downtown, testing out baked goods on her co-workers, and soaking up stuffy Russian literature.

Our goal is to bring you fun and interesting recipes that are an adventure [good or bad] to make, the latest tunes that we spend our time baking to, the books that inspire us, and the movies that we watch whilst devouring our culinary creations.

Please excuse our blog while we figure out exactly what we're doing. We're all sort of new to this blogging thing, so we're making it up as we go along. Feel free to ask us questions and we'll do our best to answer them!

Contacts will be coming soon.
