I love to bake, and I bake with love. As a kid, I was pulled into baking by my Mom because she let me lick the bowl, which is still one of my biggest joys. I dig how all of my senses come alive when I’m baking – from mindfully measuring and mixing to happily inhaling the sweet aroma that fills my home. Most of all, I enjoy how people’s eyes light up when I share my baked treats. Posting my recipes online gives me an opportunity to revisit old faves, recreate food memories and test out new ideas. As a graphic designer, a cook book is a dream project because it merges two of my passions: publication design and baking. Instead of waiting to get hired to design a cook book, I’m just going to bake it myself.
