Hello friends, and welcome to the blog! My name is Melanie, and I am a cynical optimist who bakes for a living. I’ve been working in professional kitchens for about 7 years, and I enjoy experimenting and creating at home in my own kitchen as well.

Another one of my passions is writing, although in recent times I have found that I’ve fallen out of the habit of practicing. The goal is that this blog will act as an incentive to get me to write more often, and hopefully in doing so, entertain others with my razor sharp wit and remarkable prose (whilst ideally not turning them off with my peculiar humor).
