Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
To be honest, re-entering the blog world with a food perspective makes me a little nervous…but mostly VERY excited. Let me explain how I got here.
I have had a thing for frosting and dessert since I was a child, as is abundantly clear from the pic below.
While I’ve also always enjoyed baking, it wasn’t until last spring that I started doing it really consistently. Realizing I was in need of some creative therapy, I set a goal to bake something every Saturday morning. This was also a great opportunity to practice photographing the results with my new, heavy and alarmingly complicated Canon EOS 60D.
I began to look forward to Saturday morning all through the week. I would spend my lunch break scouring for recipes online. I think I enjoyed it too because it was as challenging as it was fun – these recipes brought me through new frontiers of piping bags and puff pastry.
Six months later, I came to the realization that in order to grow I would need to challenge myself continually – hence this blog!
In some ways I feel unqualified to start something like this. I am the definition of a home cook – Mom-taught, Alton-taught, Ina-taught, Pioneer Woman-taught. The same goes for photography – I am figuring it all out one frantic google search at a time! But I also know there are a lot of other people on this same journey who have a similar love of both baking and photography, so if a recipe I share is just what you needed then it’s all worth it!
A note on the name of this blog. One reason I picked it is simply because I had blueberries and Greek yogurt for breakfast this morning. I like the idea though – while I love to indulge (and there will be plenty of that on here) I am also drawn to recipes that are sweet but simple. It’s also always nice to have a little something healthy thrown in with the sweetness. I mean, we could all use one more reason to justify dessert, right?
