You want to hear my story? Well, I don't have much of one. Baking was never a thing I really thought I had much of a talent for. Then out of the blue one day, my best friend said that we should open a cupcake shop together. She was working and going to school at the time, and I had recently graduated and was unemployed, so I shrugged and said I'd learn how to bake cupcakes.
My thirst for knowledge had been woken up. I needed to know more, so like any nerd in this day and age, I turned to the benevolent Lord Internet. It was there I first discovered this thing known as a baking blog. I was fascinated and I played with the idea of starting my own, but I was hesitant. I didn't know the first thing about how one might develop a recipe, and it seemed a cheat to only post recipes out of cookbooks. So I kept baking and practicing and reading blogs and collecting cookbooks (and reading them. Obvi).
But then it was November of 2011, and I was procrastinating writing my NaNoWriMo novel because it was trying to kill me (romantic themed mainstream fiction. Not usually my thing, and writing it was like pulling teeth. Ugh. I hate that novel), so I decided to sign up for a blogger account and give it a go.

My main goal in writing this blog is to never censor myself (well, I do try to keep things PG, but anyhow). I talk about what I want to talk about, write what I want to write, bake what I want to bake. I talk a lot in parenthetical asides. I craft my own costumes for NYCC. I don't like too much sugar in my frosting. Carrot cake can stay very, very far away from me. I will never apologize for being me.
