Hi! Welcome to A Baker’s House! Thanks for wanting to learn more about me.
My name is Holly and I am a mom to two young boys. One has food issues and has NEVER eaten any dessert that I’ve made. Not even a bite. He does enjoy smoothies but other than a short list of foods that he’ll eat each day, there is not an ounce of adventure in him as regards eating. I pray that this will one day change. He is healthy and growing but he is missing out on the world and enjoyment of food. My younger son is slightly more flexible. Only slightly. He does look forward to cakes, cookies and many desserts so if he gives me the thumbs up on a recipe then I know it must be good. My husband doesn’t always like sweet dessert and would probably prefer a cheese plate rather than cake, but he’ll eat the occasional pie and will be quick to tell me if a cake is too dry. That leaves me– most of the food on this blog is what I like to eat– desserts, breads, soups, and the occasional main dish that is too good not to share. I am hoping that you’ll enjoy these recipes too!
I started this blog as a way to share recipes with my mom across the miles. Soon I realized that I had a few more viewers each day than my mom and extended family. How exciting! Also, I learned that I thoroughly enjoy the process of baking, photography, and writing blog posts. There is a wonderful blogging community out there in cyberspace and I’ve been lucky to get to know some new friends through food blogs.
My present purpose in writing this blog is to build an online recipe collection, hoping that you will find foods you love too. I have an overflowing drawer of recipes torn from magazines and newspapers and I’d love to have them all in one easy to find website. I’m learning more about photography each time I pick up my camera. I took a short, three-hour course about a year ago before I owned a DSLR camera and would like to take a refresher course now that I am more confident using my new camera, a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. I most often use the Canon 50 mm/1.8f lens. Hopefully my photography will do justice to the food I prepare. We eat with our eyes first and food photography is a powerful way to share my love of food with you!
