I am the wife of an avid outdoorsman which means that there is a collection of very popular venison and fish recipes for you to enjoy!

My passion is baking and sugar art so you will also find a collection of my famous bakery recipes. Owning and operating Sherry’s Sheer Delight, my experience in baking comes from making elaborate wedding cakes as well as freshly baked goods.

Great Lakes Culinary Institute

As I was finishing up my last semester at the Great Lakes Culinary Institute in the spring of 2018 the idea to create recipes and share them sounded like a dream job to me.  The title – From Michigan To The Table – was dreamed up on my long rides home from school. 

A year later www.frommichigantothetable.com was born in 2019!

I dedicated this site to the person that wants to learn how to grow their cooking skills using fresh farm ingredients or freshly harvested products. If you are a farm to table kind of person, this blog is for you! I will have lots of tips and tricks for your cooking and baking needs.

Northwestern Michigan College

Most people are surprised to learn that I am a roller coaster enthusiast and that I earned an Associates of Applied Science in Culinary Arts at the age of 47 from the Great Lakes Culinary Institute in Traverse City, Michigan!

Graduating with High Honors/Magna Cum Laude and a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society, it is never too late to follow your dreams. I am living proof that if you have a dream, find a way to make it happen.
