Today I decided to graduate to webmaster and play with the idea of this website. I am a long time blogger and crafter and have dreamed of a creative space to call home. Welcome to the Daydream Workshop at MandyTanner.com. This is a site where you can find delicious recipes, crafts to make with your child, and even purchase some of the awesome soft goods and handmade crafts that have all been created with love, by me.
I'm Mandy Tanner, a trained professional chef and pastry chef. For real. I went to a prestigious culinary school in New York City and graduated with honors in the Pastry Program. (Thank you French Culinary Institute for the awesome education and experience.) I am more than just a girl who plays with sugar and fondant, but that is certainly part of what I do. I have been cooking savory food my whole life and have been in the restaurant business in front and back of the house for more years than I have fingers to count. I don't just do it for fun, although it is pretty much my favorite thing ever aside from being a mom. Cooking and food bring people together in a way that nothing else does. That said, you can find delicious easy to make recipes here that will be great for your entire family. You will be able to find recipes from my previous blogs as well as new things to try. I can't wait to share them with you!
The crafts and soft goods I make are things that interest me or entertain my child and her imagination. I enjoy sewing. I picked it up again while I was pregnant with my daughter Audrey. I think she is the best thing in the world and I like to spend my days making her happy and able to grow up in a world of wonder and creativity. I like to make her clothes and accessories and dress us alike sometimes (while I still can). I also love how many other creative moms have designed cool products and clothing and love to support my fellow mom shops. Feel free to use the contact page for collaborations and product feature inquiries.
I hope you will enjoy my blog and this website as much as I enjoy creating it.
Home cook, Mom, wife, and crafty creative, Mandy is from California and has traveled the world and lived in lots of places. She has fallen in love with Dallas, TX and calls it home.
