One of my resolutions this year (and to be honest almost every year) is to talk more about myself on the blog. Me in a nutshell: I'm a Librarian. I'm a blogger. I'm a reader. Here's a little bit about me outside the bookish world.
If you follow me on Instagram - I post a LOT of pictures of food. First because it's easy to snap a picture. And second because I like to eat - a Lot.
I don't mind cooking but my real love is baking.
Most of the time, I find it relaxing. Although sometimes I don't read the recipe all the way through and that causes issues.
I have a Good Eats board on Pinterest - mostly filled with desserts with over 1200 pins. Some of it is more substantial food. Lots of bread too! Yes I'm addicted to Pinterest.
I love tasting desserts in restaurants, but often I'm disappointed.
I think I could make it better. Or more the way I would like it.
I'm not crazy about fancy desserts. I'm more of a brownie - cookie - cake kind of girl.
How did I get this way?
Well, both my Grandfather and my Father have the same sweet tooth. My parents like to bake and it just seemed natural to me. I would get care packages in college with homemade cookies from my dad. It was the best! Having a homemade baked good makes me happy. Plus it's one of the ways I show people I care.
So what kinds of things are my specialty?
|Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes|
|Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie pie|
Not Pictured: Brownies, S'more Rocky Road Brownies, cookies, Blueberry Cake, donuts...you get the idea.
Do you have a favorite dessert?
