Hi! I’m Kate and I’m so happy you found your way to my little baking world. Baking has been a love of mine for so long, but in the last few years it has become a real passion.
I’m a lifelong Boston girl (who married a Yankees fan – ya, I know!) who has an incredibly supportive family and lots of hungry friends! My husband and I live in a condo outside the city with our two cats where the magic of whipped-butter-meets-sugar happens constantly. (Maybe too often? No…)
My parents are regulars in the kitchen. My dad makes the most amazing turkey stew with our Thanksgiving leftovers and my mom can make a mean blueberry (/apple/strawberry-rhubarb/key lime) pie. With so much culinary talent in my parents, it was just a matter of time before I found my way.
I’m the one my co-workers love to hate because I’m constantly bringing in buttery goodness. I bring dessert to almost every dinner party, make cakes to celebrate birthdays and weddings, and even love making buttermilk pancakes for Sunday brunch.
I want this blog to be a learning tool for the basic baker and creative inspiration for the seasoned vets. I’m not a professional and I don’t always get recipes right the first time. You’ll see my successes and my failures and I’ll give you honest, and hopefully entertaining, commentary. Among the more advanced projects will be the easy stuff plus some savory sprinkled in.
With that, I hope you enjoy what I have to say and bake your hearts out, for the love of butter!
