Yes, I am infact Blonde. A blonde who loves to bake.
I find baking relaxes me and look forward to the time I get to spend in the kitchen, even if latel that that not been much. I grew up being my grandma’s helper in the kitchen, and having a house full of kids and grand children, she baked every day. She was very selective about who could be in the kitchen when she was baking so kids would not be underfoot. I was the chosen one! It was destiny!
Now that I am an adult with my own kitchen, I try to focus my blog on recipes that I think will be crowd pleasers and are easy to make. I admire those bakers who make gorgeous 4+ tiered cakes or slave for hours in the kitchen baking breads and fancy desserts with too many components to count. I don’t have the time and my friends, family and coworkers prefer simple goodies over the complex ones. I think it is the simple, well done, recipes that create the greatest satisfaction. I don’t crave my grandma’s 4 tiered fudge cake like I do her basic chocolate chip cookies. Maybe its just me but I think ‘bigger’ is not always better.
I try to include recipes that you can easily add/subtract ingredients to them and make them your own. I hope you enjoy this novice baker’s goodies. Please feel free to comment or email:
