Well, hello there!

Welcome to my shiny new blog!

I'm Laura, wife to my high school sweetheart and stay-at-home-mom to two super-cute kids. I love to write and love to bake. So a food blog is a pretty obvious hobby, come to think of it.

It makes me so happy to walk into my kitchen on a quiet morning, coffee in one hand and a really great recipe in the other...the sight and sound of the mixer beating the butter and sugar into the perfect, creamy consistency; the smell of vanilla extract working through the batter; feeling the dough in my hands; watching the ingredients come together to puff and rise and turn a lovely golden brown and watching chocolate melt into rich, gooey perfection. To me, baking is art and science and poetry and love.

You won't find great photography or fancy technical features here. What you will find is a collection of recipes that I've tested and loved. I hope it feels like a cozy little piece of internet-land to visit. Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Special thanks to my friend Jaimie for the lovely header/banner!
