Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! I am a novice self-taught baker, and I’m about 9 months into trying to learn everything possible about baking. Baking is one of my favorite hobbies and it really helps me de-stress.
I stumbled across a baking blog: http://www.sallysbakingaddiction.com in June and it was an absolute game changer. Sally’s recipes are adventurous, creative, and delicious. She also adds in tutorials, tips, and hints on how to achieve that perfect bake. She’s amazing and you should check her out if you haven’t already. A lot of the things you’ll see here are her recipes. However, all of the pictures I post (unless I specify otherwise) are MY creations.
What I’d like to accomplish here is to continue to learn how to bake and master cakes, cookies, pastries, fondant, breads, royal icing, etc., and to share that journey with you all. I’m not afraid to share my failures along with my successes, so be on the lookout for a few “blooper reels” every now and then.
The next step after learning to bake and understanding how ingredients work and interact, is to learn how to bake low carb desserts. Slowly this space might change in appearance and content as I broaden my education. My goal is to be able to live as low carb as possible without turning into a crazy person. I am a true carbivore at heart and learning to eat low carb has been extremely stressful, especially during the holidays. But I am already seeing positive results through weight loss and in my energy levels.
Please feel free to leave your thoughts, comments, ideas, or stories here too! Just keep it friendly, please. Here’s to 2019 and awesome new adventures! Happy New Year!- Jen
