About Me

I am a CPA who has a passion for baking!  I have always said that it would be my dream to get paid to bake treats in the kitchen all day.... Why not pursue that dream, right?

I have decided to test the waters with this little dream of mine and that is how The Cookie Counter was born!  I am still a full-time CPA at a large firm that definitely keeps me busy, but the thing about having a passion is that you don't mind giving up some of your free time to do it!  So when I am not in the office crunching numbers, I am in the kitchen cranking out sweets!

If you are interested in ordering some sweets, please contact me at:

Please email me with the type of treats you want to order (i.e., custom cupcakes, sugar cookies, cake balls, etc.), the date you will need them by, and the approximate number you will need.  Once I have that information, I will let you know whether or not I can fulfill the order and will give you a price estimate.

Confections are made to order and since I am a full-time CPA and part-time baker, I ask for at least a 14 day notice so that I can plan my work schedule accordingly.

Anybody ever head of this?!?  Well the other day I was in the break room at work getting water and saw three bags of cream colored mush... Now I had seen these bags several weeks back and didn't pay much attention to them, but these strange looking bags were back, so I decided to stop and read the paper attached to them and saw "Amish Friendship Bread" with strange instructions like "Mush the Bag."

Well still not really sure what the bag of goo was, I went back to Google, and read up on it.  It is similar to a chain letter, in the sense that once you get it, you must pass 3 more along.  So this bag of mush is really an active yeast mixture that is supposedly passed down from generation to generation steaming only from the Amish. Now I don't know how true this is, but it has definitely been circulating around my office for a month or so now.  Even after reading of…

Pandan Coconut Ice Cream

Pandan, have you ever heard of it? Growing up, I ate many sweets flavored with Pandan, although I didn't really learn what it was until my early 20s. It is a common flavor used in Southeast Asian desserts, similarly to how Vanilla is used in most American baked goods. If you have ever been into an Asian bakery and seen bright green cakes and such, that gorgeous green hue is attributable to Pandan. I ate many green desserts as a child but honestly never knew what that distinct flavor was and always just thought the green color was from food coloring to make things more exciting.

However, in my adult years I started to see trendy Asian restaurants serving Pandan flavored desserts, and not until then did I realize I had been eating Pandan my whole life. My sister and I started to become obsessed with ordering beignets with pandan ice cream at one of our local sushi restaurants in Houston. Now that I live in Austin, I don't get to enjoy those delicious pillowy beignets and ice cre…
