Hi, there! I’m Lexis.
I grew up in a family that loved good food. Whether it was a fun trip for ice cream on a hot summer evening or a cozy family-style dinner at my grandparent’s in the winter, my happiest memories usually involved food.
And, though I didn’t do much of any actual cooking when I was young, I quickly learned the satisfaction of being in the kitchen when my husband, Max, and I got married in 2014. I discovered a certain joy and contentment that comes from taking raw ingredients and deftly transforming them into something delicious.
Making a treat that comforts someone after a long day, or elicits long-lost, tucked away memories, is, indeed, a special privilege.
And, that’s how my blog was born.
I’ve always loved to read, write, and take photographs. So when I realized that many people shy away from the kitchen because baking appears to be too difficult, or they just don’t have the time to learn, I decided to combine my interests. This blog is here to give you the confidence and inspiration to get back in the kitchen – and enjoy doing so!
Max helped me build this beautiful blog so that I can share with you all of my tips, tricks, and ideas. Plus, I always love learning from what you have to say, too.
I started cooking out of necessity. And now, I cook because I love it.
To me, nothing is more comforting than kneading a yeasty dough or smoothing buttercream on a cake. Mixing and beating ingredients together is cathartic. And, one of the most satisfying feelings is pulling a sweet confection out of the oven, while watching your loved ones’ eyes light up with joy.
I’m not done learning about food – not by a long shot. Truthfully, I never want to stop growing in knowledge and technique. So, thanks for tuning in to this wonderful adventure. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
A Few Fun Facts About Me
Besides blogging and baking, my other hobbies include biking, graphic art, exercising, and watching cooking TV shows.
My favorite spot is anywhere above the water. I love to find a hidden cliff or pier above a lake or ocean and just watch the waves roll in from the horizon.
I’m an animal person, except not when they are very slobbery. I love dogs and cats, though I’m slightly allergic to both.
My last meal would consist of: spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, antipasto salad, and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream with a chocolate fudge cake. Or pizza and buffalo wings, and macarons for dessert… hmm, IDK. I need to think about this one some more. Have I mentioned that I LOVE food? 🙂
I’m kind of #obsessed with Instagram. Connect with me here to see some behind-the-scenes stories and snippets of my everyday life.
