Hey, I’m Candi, So Glad You’re Here!
Here at Candiland, I will share some encouragement for you “the busy mom” or parent, that will help you feed your family with delicious recipes, along with tips in the kitchen, and I’ll be cheering you on all the way.
A little more about me
I’m a foodie, recipe developer, and photographer. I grew up in Southern California where I met my husband who was my high-school sweetheart. I’m also a mom to 3 adult children, two boys, my long-awaited daughter, and our two cats.
In 2008, I went to Culinary School after I sold my Tearoom. I started this blog and as they say, the rest is history.
I enjoy volunteering at my church in addition to helping my husband with his air conditioning business. (bookkeeping that is, not under the car 😹) Some of my favorite things are a constant desire to educate myself in photography📷 , baking science 🧁, crushing debt 💲, and all things Afternoon Tea 🫖. I also have an obsession with Starbucks Iced Tea. I know DON’T JUDGE.

More about Candi and Candiland
Originally in 2010. The blog has gone through many changes since then.
I wanted to incorporate my name with dessert recipes which was my original plan when I started along with following my busy life.
In 2005 I started a Tearoom in a Victorian Home we bought. We only used it for business and hosted the Red Hat Society women for their events. It was so much fun, but the economy tanked and we had to sell it. My heart broke. 💔
I would say the Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. They are so moist and delicious.
It really depends on the season. Some months every week and then some months, I am updating older posts to create a better user experience for my readers with expert baking tips and substitution ideas.
