I come from a family of avid bakers. My grandma was an absolute wizard in the kitchen, and I will always remember the blueberry pies, pancakes, and muffins she would bake with the fresh blueberries we picked every summer. She passed her skills and passion along to my mom, whose cookie jar is always stocked with the best homemade cookies! In turn, my mom instilled in me a love for baking from a young age.
I have loved to bake for as long as I can remember and have always thought that sharing homemade treats was one of the most sincere expressions of love. Eventually, as I discovered my passion for food photography, I found that I could share my recipes with even more people through this little corner of the Internet that I call my blog. It means the world to me that you invite my recipes into your own kitchen and that they become your loved and trusted recipes, too!
When I’m not baking, you can find me eating cookies, laughing with my family, going for long walks, cross-stitching, or enjoying a cocktail outside. I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my husband, Alex, and our two children.
