“Celebrate we will. Cause life is short, but sweet for certain…” –Dave Matthews Band


Welcome! I’m Emily, a self-taught baker from Michigan. I am obsessed with macarons, reading, and traveling.


I am married to my high school sweetheart, Tim. We’ve been together for 11 years, and we have one very spoiled cat, Katniss (she only comes when you call her Kitty, though).

My husband works in IT, but his passion is drumming (and video games). Together, we love traveling, riding our Yamaha FZ8, eating, and watching Netflix.

My love of baking truly started in the last five years. As I am currently unable to go to pastry school, I thought it would be a fun learning experience to pick a recipe book and make every recipe in it, from cover to cover, blogging about my successes as well as my failed attempts along the way. I started this blog not only for accountability, but also because I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone. I felt like I wasn’t doing a lot with my life. Now when my weekends come around, I am excited because I know I’ll be baking something new and will be able to look back on here to see how far I’ve come! My hope is not only to challenge myself and grow as a baker but also to hopefully inspire someone else to pursue their passion!
