Meet the Baker

This is me. I’m the cookie monster.

I think about baking.
I eat baking.
I dream about baking.
I like love baking.

Oh and don’t even get me started on chocolate. I can talk about that for hours and hours. And I start to drool at hour 0.15. So if you get me started on talking about chocolate, you better have some with you!

About Me

Things about me that are not cookie nor chocolate related:

I’m in my 4th year of university.
I am studying Dietetics. So ironic, right?

I’ve lived in Vancouver my whole life and I love it here… though I could do without all the rain.
I can eat copious amounts of desserts in one sitting. My stomach is bottomless. Actually, it’s more like I have a second stomach that I have grown through adaptation to help me eat more dessert. 
I’m obsessed with the colour green

About the Blog

I first developed an interest in blogging when I was 16. I have always loved dessert and I used to just search pictures of cookies on Google images. One day, I randomly stumbled upon a baking blog, and I fell in love with the idea of baking my own desserts and taking beautiful pictures, ie. food porn.

I started to develop an addiction to reading food blogs. Oh it was baaadd. It was an I-can’t-peel-my-eyes-off-the-monitor kind of addiction. After browsing through many food blogs, I found a few favourite ones and got inspired by their food art. It amazed me how anybody could find the time to bake everyday, find something interesting to write about everyday AND post it on their beautifully designed blogs. With every blog post that I read, I became more and more motivated to create my own recipes and just bake!

However, I kept my status as a “blog reader” for a couple more months before I found the courage to start my own blog. For a long time, I was afraid of any criticism that could completely dissolve my new found interest. More importantly, I doubted myself, my skills and my endurance in pursuing baking dessert. 

I’ve come to my third year of writing this blog, and I am glad to say that I have learnt a lot, and I mean A LOT, about baking. Recently, I have even challenged myself to make cakes that my former 16 year old self could never even dream of! I have had several successes in my journey of dessert so far, but only because I have made ten times the amount of mistakes. 

This blog has become more than I initially envisioned it to be, but it doesn’t end here. I will be here blogging away and creating chronicles of my baking story until obesity or diabetes gets me :)

    Your stuff looks freaking awesome… It’s so cool.. which places in Vancouver have the bestest cookies? I’ve been devouring Safeway cookies (peanut butter and macadamia). I think those are pretty good but I’m no connoisseur so if you can please enlighten me.

  14. I just came across your blog and had to check it out with such a fun name! You have so many great recipes on here- I’m excited to get started on trying some out. =)
