Hi! My name is Kristina and I’m a 2o-something self-taught baker trying to find my way in Chicago one cupcake at a time!
I LOVE to bake, bake what I love and love who I bake for.
The purpose of my blog is to share with you my many adventures (and misadventures) in the kitchen and the ups and downs of finding my way in the big bad world. I love baking, but even more I love sharing my food with friends and family.
I’m also a long-time runner and into healthy living. There’s definitely a time for a triple chocolate cheesecake, but it’s all about balance. I want to share with you indulgent lighter recipes that won’t break your skinny jeans. I know lower cal recipes can sometimes taste like… low cal recipes. That’s why I’m only sharing recipes that taste truly decadent. No more settling for chalky brownies or dry cookies!
Little more about me 🙂 Besides my sugar addiction, I’m a total news junkie and magazine hoarder. You’ll find every episode of Regis and Kelly on my TiVO and I can’t live without my iPod. I have this problem where I buy the exact same pair of jeans over and over..and over. My favorite color is blue and my cookbook obsession is taking over my kitchen.
I hope my blog adds a little sweetness to your everyday.
