about me

Hi there! I’m Stephanie and this is my food life.

If you’re here, you’ve probably figured out that I love baking. And I love cooking (although probably not as much as I love baking). There’s a kind of satisfaction that comes with whipping up a fresh batch of cookies (still trying to find the formula for that perfect chocolate chip cookie), or coming up with a recipe for dinner that includes green veggies AND is hubby-approved (picky-eater problems, amirite?) I started this blog as a way to share my recipes and my love of food with this little corner of the internet-food world.

You’ll find all sorts of recipes here – but I have a serious sweet tooth – you’ve been warned! On any given day you can likely find me whipping up a batch of cookies or finding a new use for my cast-iron pan – LOVE that thing so much. 

When I’m not in my tiny (but mighty) kitchen (which isn’t too often – I’ve had friends ask me if I ever leave the kitchen, true story), I enjoy long walks with my husband Grant, board games (well, I enjoy trying to get Grant to play board games with me), making up new recipes,exploring Des Moines, and binge-watching Parks & Rec.

I can’t wait for us to make some amazing food together!
