Thanks for stopping by Boston Girl Bakes!
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet. My name is Heather and I live just outside of the city of Boston. I’ve been here for about
5 6 7 whole years now from upstate New York. I grew up riding horses, shoveling out stalls (not the most glamorous task), plucking eggs from the chicken coop, and playing hide and go seek in our corn field. So I’m definitely a farm girl at heart living in a big city. I am a teacher by day and can be found baking in my kitchen most nights when grading papers doesn’t get the best of me.
I started this blog a couple years ago and as a fun way to document all my baking adventures (and mishaps). I remember the first time I read a food blog and was mesmorized by all the beautiful photos. It was like a free magazine at my fingertips. I was hooked. It slowly then became my own desire, hope, dream to have my own…and eventually Boston Girl Bakes was born. It’s been a bumpy road. Some starts and stops along the way as I was figuring this whole blogging thing out. New apartments, and kitchens to tangle with, but slowly growing this blog along the way. That’s what I love most though besides connecting with all of you, is how the learning with this blogging thing never stops!
Being the farm girl at heart, you will find scratch made recipes. I also used to work at a bakery a few years ago, so I truly believe in making things from scratch. I don’t believe baking has to be complicated and that anyone can do it. I’ll help you along with the way with some great baking tips and some step by step photos. I’ve also taken many cake decorating classes and baking and pastry arts classes, so I’ll share my love and knowledge with you so you can be a successful baker too. Yes, baking is a science. And yes I am a science teacher. But I truly don’t believe you need a culinary arts degree or a master’s degree in science for that matter to turn out delicious desserts in your own kitchen. Baking can be easy. And, of course above all else, I believe that baking should be FUN. And my favorite part the rewards are always SWEET.
All of my recipes are tasted and tested by me, and #1 taste tester. . If he doesn’t gobble them up then I know it’s just not worthy of sharing. I love trying new recipes, anything with salted caramel, chocolate or covered in a layer of thick buttercream frosting. I am a sucker for sprinkles. I never turn down a chocolate chip cookie. I believe a bad day can be turned around with a really good cupcake. I love messing up my kitchen and loathe cleaning it up. If you love me, you will do the dishes. If I love you, I’ll make you something delicious, probably dipped in chocolate or slathered in frosting.
Thank you for stopping by and happy baking everyone!
