About Me

Cooking and baking is something I have enjoyed doing since I was a kid. I was always asking mom if I could make dinner rolls, or bake cookies. Photography has also been a passion of mine since a young age. I got my first camera for Christmas (a Polaroid!) when I was 9 or 10 years old, and have loved the art ever since.


I specialize in whole-food ingredient, healthy recipes. I don't follow any specific diet, but we do have a few food allergies in our house, so I try to limit the recipes I create to those which I can feed my family.

Since I live at "high-altitude" (or at least it's considered high altitude in terms of baking) I don't always feel confident with recipes requiring certain leavening like yeast and baking powder or baking soda, so I may decline requests for these types of recipes.

I do love to bake, though, and chocolate and pizza are among my favorite foods :) My favorite recipes to create are easy, one-pot dinners!
