Welcome to the Blue Bird Blog!


I'm Shauna, and since I was a little girl, I have loved to bake special treats for family and friends.

My mom taught me that with a little creativity, anyone can turn a simple dinner into celebration.

I enjoy hearing about other families’ food traditions and their favorite birthday dessert. There is a magic that can happen in the kitchen, when food, love and creativity meet.

I trained in pastry arts at Johnson and Wales University and have worked in the baking industry for the past 20 years. I started Tangerine and Spice as a place to share my seasonal recipes and baking adventures.  I enjoy teaching others to bake and to customize recipes to food preferences such as vegan, non-dairy, gluten-free, and more. I recently launched my baking kits and classes to bring people together and celebrate the big and small moments in life.
