About

Hi! I’m Katherine and I love, love, love to bake! You’ll soon learn that I am kind of addicted. I also like crafts (I have a knack for making friendship bracelets), sciencey things, photography, and one could say that I kind of sort of maybe like running. Whenever I find the free time, baking is always my go to activity. This blog is my way of sharing that love with all of you.

 

About My Blog

I started this blog in January of 2014 on a cold winter day when I was bored over my high school break. I had always followed several baking blogs, but never blogged myself. I’ve been baking ever since I can remember, although from the age of 8 to 12 I only ever remember making chocolate chip cookies, and lots of them. So, I signed up for a free Weebly blog, posted some recipes along with subpar photos, and had fun with it!

I’ve found myself more and more involved in my blog ever since and in December of 2015, I bought my own domain, got my own hosting company, and started using WordPress. I didn’t delete my Weebly blog, so it is still there, but I consider this blog to be monumentally better than my old one. After several months of working hours and hours every day on this blog I created what you see here today. 

 

My Photography

Buttery Linzer Tarts with Hazelnuts
One of my favorite photos I have taken for my blog thus far.

Ever since moving to this site (and a bit before then too), I decided to take my photography up a notch. I use a Canon DSLR Rebel T5 and absolutely love it. I also use a tripod if I feel that I need to. I use all natural light and shoot on manual, meaning I shift the shutter speed, aperture, etc. myself to achieve the photos you see here. I have never taken a photography class, instead I have read a lot about it online and taught myself. I hope you like the pictures I post here and know that I put a lot of time and effort into taking them so you can see what you’re hoping to make before you rush into your kitchen to make it.

 

About Me

I grew up right outside of Boston, Massachusetts and love everything about it. I am currently a student at Hamilton College in upstate New York, where I am considered majoring in Biology. Other than that, I’m only 18 years old so I have no idea what I’m going to do with my life, but I know baking will be a part of it.

My favorite TV show is Friends and my favorite movie is Harry Potter; I like all of them, but if I had to choose, I suppose it would be Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The most important thing to me is my family and friends, which of course also includes my adorable basset hound Martha! You will find some hidden pictures of her throughout this blog (hint, one is below).

I know she probably looks unhappy to you but that is just a basset hound’s face. To me she’s the cutest dog to ever walk this earth, duh.
