I’m Tamara the baker and blogger behind Jem of the South, the place where you “Discover Something Sweet!” I’ve been baking since I was a teen and I started, Jem of the South in 2010 as a way to share my creativity through baking. My adventures in baking have led me down many paths including having my own radio show, hosting dessert events, producing dessert guides and in 2018 I’ll be publishing my first cookbook, “Let’s Have Brunch!”

Black Girl Magic From The Movie, Black Panther

Black History Month this year means that we are still making history daily and that I am a part of that history.  After seeing the movie Black Panther, and the strong female cast members from the film, I am reminded that Black History is happening right now, and I am a part of this movement.

Where Are You Finding Inspiration To Bake This Year?

 My parents are a constant inspiration in my life.

My parents are a constant inspiration in my life.

I find my inspiration from so many places. This year I am taking time to step back and remember why I started Jem of the South.  I’m making sure I am creating things that come from my heart.  So I guess my inspiration is coming more from within myself.
