I have grown to really love cooking and baking with a kitchen that now feels like home after our recent improvements. I have always been better at cooking, but my growing interest in baking has yielded me growing discipline for following recipes and interest in creating more complex sweets as I learn more techniques.

If you haven’t noticed already, I LOVE baking! I may not always be good at it or follow the recipes to the letter, but having the freedom to take someone else’s recipe with my own flair makes baking all the more fun! My favorite new addition to my collection is a rectangle tart pan, and […]

For months, almost years, I have been trying different food methods to avoid the “I’m tired and just going to pick something up” in life.
