Hi There! I’m Heather.

I’m so glad you’re here! If you hadn’t already guessed, I’m the blondie behind the blog. I use this little corner of the internet to chronicle my favorite cookies + cakes. The recipes you see here are mostly sweet, sometimes savory… heavy on the chocolate. You’ll find plenty of indulgence {hello triple chocolate cheesecake!} with a side of healthy-ish. My love for baking comes from my insatiable sweet tooth and I live by the cookie-a-day-philosophy. If it’s made with browned butter – even better!

My obsession for all things browned butter happened in an unexpected way. Years ago, I founded an English almond toffee business based off of a family recipe. After almost a decade of hand crafting pound after pound of the chocolate covered buttery confection, I can certainly say I know a thing or two around the kitchen. I am a self-taught baker and through this collection of tried and true recipes I hope to inspire you to throw on your apron, preheat the oven and bake up a little special something that makes life sweet.

A little more about me. My husband is the cook. I am the baker. Everyone wins. I am the mom of three girls {best job ever!!}, one cute pup and five feisty chickens. Clutter makes me crazy, running keeps me sane and I’ve never met a banana cream pie I didn’t like. I’m a big fan of lemon groves, thank you notes and salted caramel anything. Give me a vase and I’ll fill it with white hydrangeas. Springtime is my favorite season and I WILL fly 5,000 miles for a freshly baked croissant.

Make yourself at home! This blog is for both the novice baker and for those with more experience in the kitchen. You’ll find how-to’s and tutorials, a few musings and memories, tons of tips and tricks and gift guides galore. There is something for everyone so let’s get baking!!

If you are new here, send me a note. I’d love to hear from you! You can also find me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
