Thanks for dropping by! I’m A. Baker and I began this blog because finally, after years of eating processed baked goods and Lean Cuisines, I’ve decided to live up to my last name.
Although it took me over 30 years, cooking and baking are something that I have really come to enjoy. I grew up with a mother who was always baking something or other, be it her famous seven layer bars (my fav) or a German Chocolate Cake (another fav). While I thoroughly enjoyed fighting with my sister over who got to lick the bowl, I always pictured myself eating sweet baked goods – never creating them.
While I take pride in
creating chaos testing out any type of recipe, I’m quite inept when it comes to cooking meat or fish (but I’m working on it).
If I’m not in the kitchen, you’ll most likely find me in a middle school classroom, a yoga studio or a used book store.
