Howdy! I’m Jared, the creator of Sweet Plate. Thank you for visiting my collection of baked goods. Every treat from Sweet Plate is inspired by family, travel and a deep love for snacking! I truly hope you find your next favorite treat here!
I was raised a southern meat and potatoes kind of guy with a large, loving family that knew good food. I loved being in the kitchen and grew up in the back of a restaurant, literally! My parents owned a southern style restaurant and my mom catered and gifted sweet treats just about every other weekend. Growing up in a restaurant was sometimes tiring but always interesting. I take away so many lovely things from my upbringing. The main one being a love for food and snacking!
My mom is a sweet-as-pie lady with some killer pies to boot! She’s what got me started on my baking journey, and I’m forever grateful.
Every recipe on Sweet Plate is a little love story from me to you. Its a small piece of my day, my past, or current obsession that I want everyone to enjoy with me! My partner is always coming up with a new request for me in the kitchen and I truly enjoy the entire creative process. I take pride in recipe testing to get a result that has amazing texture and finish, that you can rely on for your family time and time again.
I hope you enjoy my collection of recipes and photography, they are truly a labor of love.
Thank you dearly – Jared
