This is where my love of sweets, photography and writing comes to life!
How did this all start? In November of 2010, I decided I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple blog. This beautiful collection of sweets continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 10 years down the road.
How did I learn how to bake? My grandmother inspired it all. At family reunions with 100 people in the middle of a no where, she always managed to whip up perfect cherry cobblers and other treats for dessert over a campfire. It was almost magical to me.
When I hit high school, I was a soft spoken transfer student who found it hard to strike up a conversation, (a nice way of saying I had ZERO friends). So baked goods iced my way to a social life. Who wouldn’t want to talk to the girl with a plate of cookies every day?
Now, as a college student majoring in broadcast journalism at Brigham Young University, I bake between classes and my occasional trips to the library.
I believe that behind every crumb, every slice of pie, every ice cream sundae and behind every cup of cake there is a story. These are my stories and the recipes that have made my life sweeter.
I am currently in Provo, Utah finishing up college and interning.
I have always loved food. When I think about my favorite memories as a child, they always involve some sort of sweet treat.
I am the one on the right…and yes, those are rolls surrounding my stomach. My friends’ parents used to call me “The Eating Machine” because I would each whatever they put in front of me and I was always hungry.
Now, some people think all I do is bake. Well… that may be true at this point in my life but before I started this blog in 2010 I did a few other exciting things. But here’s a little fun act, ever heard of NBC’s The Sing-Off? It was basically Pitch Perfect in real life. Oh, and can I say that Nick Lachey is so much more beautiful in real life? He is. The first time I saw him (he was the host of the show) I literally couldn’t form words.
What do I get for being the tallest in the group? Always in the back row….
