Hi, I’m Emily the girl behind It Bakes Me Happy.
You may be wondering why, It Bakes Me Happy? Well one day long ago…
Okay, not really. More like one day a little over four years ago I was sitting on the couch next to my new husband (while he watched football) and feeling like I needed a hobby. Mind you we had only been married a few short months and once the realization that I no longer had wedding planning to occupy my free time set in, I decided it was time to get busy with the next big thing.
What began with a batch of cupcakes for our church Halloween activity, escalated weekly into new adventures (and sometimes failures in baking and cooking). I launched in March of 2010, after months of trying to decide on the perfect name for my new obsession. Until it finally hit me one day that all my baking and sharing really made me happy!
Fast forward to now and our little family has grown +two. I left my career as a graphic designer to become a full-time mom and I couldn’t be happier! These days I juggle experimenting new recipes and trying to capture the perfect shot between naps, feedings and diaper changes.
I love chocolate, especially brownies. I’m obsessed with bread, muffins are one of my favorites. Until recently I wasn’t much of a cookie fan.
I have a serious sweet tooth and an ever growing love of spending time in the kitchen. I use my family and friends as my own personal taste testers whenever the chance arises. I’m so glad to have to here, I hope you’ll enjoy!
