Lynette's story

I am a native of Richmond, VA, and was raised in Willingboro, NJ. From a very young age, I fell in love with baked goods and the luscious aromas that filled the air. I have been baking for over twenty years, and I believe that a fabulous dessert should not only look enjoyable, it should taste great and compel the consumer to return again and again. My passion for baking was initially inspired during summer vacations spent in North Carolina visiting my Aunt Lizzie. Each summer I spent with my Aunt left me more and more in love with sweets and the practice of baking. It was meant for me to learn and perfect baking simple yet classic southern-style desserts with a twist that stir up a nostalgic energy. My approach to baking blends together my Southern roots and my ability to create mouthwatering, moist and delicious sweet treats. In 2006 I founded the dessert company, JBEL’s Tastries™, which is an acronym for my three beautiful daughters Jasmine, Bryanna, Estasia and myself (Lynette). Always evolving, I have since taken my vision to the next level as the company transitioned into My Desserts Diva™.
