Hi, I’m Genia and baking is my solace, my fun and my passion. If I’ve had a bad day, I bake…if I’ve had a good day, I bake and anything in between, I bake. Bake sale at school, I’m there! Need cupcakes for a class party….from scratch of course… 3 dozen, why not?
After my kitchen is clean and sparkly and looks untouched….I see a blank canvas, and my kids see a disaster waiting to happen. My kids, and dog reap the rewards of my baking though so there are not too many complaints about the revolving mess on my counters. The dog mostly gets the crumbs on the floor, but I haven’t heard her complain yet either. A chocoholic doesn’t even begin to touch the surface nor explain my love and devotion to that beautiful, dark, smooth wonderfulness that must enter my mouth daily. That’s it, no questions asked, I must have chocolate.
I also have a devotion to all things organic, natural and preferably local. Any recipe you see on this site, you can assume I have used ingredients which are organic if findable, economical and in my pantry at the moment. Organic vanilla, flour, sugar, butter and eggs are staples here and so are fresh organic fruits and veggies.
I truly appreciate you stopping by so leave me a comment, and let me know how the recipes work out for you. I hope you find your time is well spent here at Sweet and Crumby.

I have had such a fun time looking at your blog. I never new that you were sooooo talented. Reading what you write is truly a pleasure. I might even have to try a few receipes.
November 7, 2010 at 11:40 pm
That’s so sweet Sandra.
January 8, 2011 at 10:40 am
I love your blog! I never read blogs but I LOVE yours! I found it because I was looking for a cupcake with three musketeers in it. Your recipe was the best homemade recipe I have ever made. I have tried so many cupcake recipes and they are never moist and delicious. The frosting recipe was amazing too!
Thank your posting on your blog. I really enjoy it.
February 4, 2011 at 2:31 pm
Thank you so much. Your sweet comments are inspiring.
January 22, 2011 at 7:08 am
HI Geni! I can’t find an email to contact you and the comment you left on my blog about the Olive Oil Cake doesn’t have any contact info either (no email in blogger profile). Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your kind comments and invite you to the Food Blogger Discussion List if you would like some other food bloggers to chat with, joke around with, share ideas, etc. 🙂 Send me an email. amanda [at] amandascookin.com
February 7, 2011 at 4:31 pm
I am sending you a message because I thought that maybe you could help me…. My husband’s birthday is next week. (Feb. 15th) His favorite candy bar is Almond Joy. I was wondering if you have or know of a recipe for an Almond Joy cake. Something with chocolate, almonds and coconut?
If you know of a recipe, please send it my way.
March 4, 2011 at 2:07 pm
Hi Geni! Thanks for your kind words on the whipping cream pound cake! I agree–we were definitely meant to be friends 🙂 I didn’t see an email for you on your homepage, so am leaving comment here. To answer your question on adding vanilla bean to cake…I split it open with a knife and scrape the seeds out and toss them into cake batter. It doesn’t look like alot, but once it’s mixed–you see lots of black flecks throughout….and the flavor … pure heaven! Happy Friday, Nina
April 19, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Dear Geni, love your blog and your recipes. Would love to meet you as we seem to share lots in common – baking, organic food, gluten free cooking (my son is a coeliac) and solace and relaxation through cooking. I also have vege patch, but, living in Australia means it is pretty huge. Also means I doubt we’ll ever meet in person, but I hope to enjoy reading your posts and getting to know you more that way. Happy baking! Margaret
January 6, 2013 at 7:10 am
So nice to meet you Margaret! It does sound like we could great friends. I envy your large veggie patch!

What a lovely blog! I actually love baking (more then cooking) though my page is not focused on baking so I will definitely be checking in. I respect your commitment to everything natural and organic, honestly I believe you can eat all the yummy and rich foods without worrying about gaining weight as long as it is natural, organic and not processed. And the pictures are stunning, I cannot believe your “head photographer” is only 12! Great job, she has a bright future and career ahead of her! I wish I could borrow her for pictures 🙂

Love your blog! I have 9 kids so I understand about the sous chefs and photographers! Very nice and I can’t wait to look around! Please come visit my blog!
September 10, 2015 at 3:33 pm
I am a savory chef, not a baker. I just do not have the patience. My blogging partner, Jocelyne, is the baker. Having said that I do love it when bakers make things that are both sweet and savory. On the savory side of sweet it’s always great when you are beginning to garden to add some herbs. I like lemon and rosemary together, basil and strawberries, blueberries and mint, etc. You get the picture? Lemon scones with rosemary, strawberry shortcake with strawberries macerated with basil and a little sugar, etc.
Be fearless when it comes to your garden. Try different things to see what works in your climate zone. I grew some really funky, fun new heirloom radishes this summer that grow above ground on a vine and look like green beans or pea pods but taste just like red radishes!!!
Looking forward to seeing pictures of your gardening journey!
