The Sugar Pixie

My name is Krissy and I am a married mother of two kids living in Pittsburgh, PA. Food is a passion and baking is a hobby. I like experimenting with traditional recipes as well as trying new trends. For every success there is usually a failure, but in the end everyone wins because well cooking your own food is awesome!

I love being back in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania because there’s so many restaurants to try and places to buy food. Join me on our culinary adventures in and out of the kitchen!

Baking Background:

I won Parenting’s cookie contest a few years back with the ‘Million Dollar Cookie‘ recipe, and I’ve guest spotted a few times under the name, ‘The Guest Baker’ over at

In 2009, I was also selected as a finalist in Parenting Magazine’s Cookie Bakeoff Bonanza with my Key Lime Cookies.

Out of the Kitchen:

I’m a geek at heart and enjoy lots of different things, but a new love is running. I started the Couch to 5k program in August 2009 and have been running and have been running ever since. I think it’s a great form of relaxation and exercise. My favorite races are the themed races, especially if I can wear a costume! It gets me out of the house and I get indulge in one of my other loves, electronic dance music. Check out my store to see what some of my favorite tunes are!
