Here goes nothin'! I decided it was time to share my baking adventures (cooking too!). If nothing else, this will be a glossary for my personal use. However, I hope other people will enjoy my recipes as well. I will be testing out recipes I find in various cookbooks, on the web, and of course from some of my favorite bloggers. I will also share some of my family's recipes that we have been making for years on end.
My love for baking and baked treats started at a young age. When I was around 3 years old, I would stand on a chair at the kitchen island and "help" my mom, however "helping" at 3 meant stealing a bar of butter and eating it like a candy bar. I grew up baking with my mom, and cooking dinner with both my mom and dad. I was always in the kitchen whenever something was in the oven, and was sure to be the first one to taste test everything.
Now a mid-twenties girl out on my own, I have continued baking and find any reason I can to bake. I'm sure this space will encourage me to do so even more!
