Welcome to my little blog and thank you for visiting! I’m Kelly and I love to bake.  ‘Just a Sliver’ is inspired by my Grandma who always says, “I’ll have dessert, but just a sliver!”

I count the lessons learned from my 92-year-old Grandma and talented-in-the-kitchen Mother as my formal training.  Old family recipes inspire me and I only bake with simple ingredients. I love photography, travel, and building my cake stand collection. Here at Just a Sliver you will find short, to-the-point write ups with lots of pictures. I hope to encourage readers to have fun in the kitchen and try new, always simple recipes.

Originally from Scotia, New York; I have lived in Northern California, Germany, Manhattan, Vermont, Cleveland, and Canada over the last four years.  Currently relocating after living in Italy for 7 months where my [new] husband and I experienced Italian culture and traveled around Europe. I’m a newlywed enjoying the adventures of this crazy life together. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect for us and I couldn’t have imagined anything better.

I hope you will continue to join me on my baking adventure.
