*NEW BLOG* Cook's Corner

Hello Q-Tea-Pies! Make sure to check in every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6 pm CST starting April 1, 2020 and ending June 29, 2020, for comfort food recipes to help all of us get through self quarantine. Each recipe will showcase fresh ingredients as well as common pantry ingredients and spices you may already have on hand. Unlike other blogs, I am not going to bore you with the story behind the recipe. Just know that I cooked it, I ate it and now I am sharing it with you. 

Enjoy!~Chef Shiane

Meet Chef Shiane

After graduating from Robert Morris culinary school in 2006, Shiane enrolled in the Wilton School of Cake Decorating in Woodridge, IL, and completed her Master Cake Decorator certificate in 2005. She received her career diplomas in Event Planning, Wedding Planning, and Gourmet Cooking and Catering from Ashworth College. Shiane began inviting at-risk youth into her home and teaching them baking and beginner knife skills. Having served her internship at A Kid’s Kitchen in Naperville, IL, Shiane knew outreach and working with children and young adults was also her calling. Since 2005 Shiane has also taught food preparation and Wilton cake decorating classes for park districts, elementary schools, Girl Scout troops and private events. As an advocate for the fine arts, in 2010 Shiane created the Herbert L. Wilcoxen memorial scholarship, in memory of her maternal grandfather; and is awarded to a graduating senior at her Alma Mater, East Aurora High School. She has hosted over a hundred bake sales, charity events, community drives, and has volunteered some 1000 plus hours in and around the Aurora, Naperville, Chicago and St. Louis areas since 2006. You may have seen her sponsor and participate in the NOARDA cake show in North Aurora, IL. Or have attended one of her many events for youth at Center on Halsted in Chicago through her non-profit, Team 101 Chicago.

Chef Shiane says, "I can say these qualities about myself: I have a passion for the cause of uplifting and nurturing community. I am a person that stands for the betterment of the underdog and under served. Besides baking, pastry and event planning, I see myself fully engaged in a career that intersects my humanitarianism with my hospitality and community service background. My vision for myself is to always work in a capacity that does tangible work creating better opportunities and avenues of success for the next generation of trailblazers. I have an internal optimism that focuses on facing the hard issues and deficiencies that are holding back our society. I am always pushing forward towards more humanitarian and social engineering engagements."
