Baking, a Love Story


Hello there…I hope you find what you are looking for.  If not, I do take requests! Just leave your request in a comment on this page.

Please let me know what you try here, and feel free to tell me what worked for you and what didn’t. I always cook from my recipes on the blog to double check their accuracy, because nothing’s worse than being up to your elbows in flour when you find out that a quantity or ingredient is suspiciously missing from the list
