I’m a California girl, currently living in San Diego but originally born and raised in the suburbs of San Francisco by two loving, patient, and incredibly supportive parents. I have one brother, the sweetest and smartest sibling I could ever ask for. (I always turn to him and his computer-savvy skills when I run into a problem!)
I studied Organic Chemistry at UC Davis and planned on a lifetime career in the Pharmaceutical Industry. But one day while standing in front of a glass beaker, buttoned up in a long white lab coat, bright purple nitrile gloves, and safety glasses, I realized that I much preferred experimenting with edible “reactions” in my kitchen at home. That “Aha!” moment motivated me to make blogging my full-time job instead, and here I am!
When I’m not baking or scrubbing mountains of dishes, I love running (it counteracts all of the sweet treat recipe testing and keeps me sane!), yoga, weight training, and meditation. Although not necessarily all together. I’m a huge sports fanatic, and I almost always turn on the TV to watch a game—yes, even over the Food Network! I inherited that passion from my dad, especially for baseball, and we’re working on going to all 30 MLB stadiums together. So far, we’re up to 23!
