Hello!

Ever since I was a young child baking has been passion of mine. Whether you are alone, chilling with friends or even just really stressed out and needing a way to relax, baking for me has always been a place for me to go. Baked goods are not just delicious but are also extremely fun to make and when you gift someone something your created with your very own two hands, it makes it that much more special. I have never been one for sports, dance or any of those co-curriculars because I am not all that coordinated, so baking is the way I love to pass the time and is a skill I have been working on for a great number years now. This blog is a place where my love of baking and photography meet hand in hand and is also a place filled with my all time favourite recipes. So join me on my baking journey, it does not matter who you are and why you want to learn, just dive in or "dig in" and lets make some SCRUMPTIOUS food!
