I'm Heather, writer, recipe developer, baker, photographer and social media manager of this blog since 2011.

This blog, and the memories and stories I share with each recipe and photo are an expression of my passion in the kitchen.  Whether it's a beautifully decorated cake or a simple fruit-filled pie, this is my art.

To me, the kitchen is the heart and soul of a home.  It's where I feel inspired to create beauty through food.  It's the place where everyone gathers, where people feel warm and comfortable and full, where the lovely aromas of apple crumbles, freshly baked breads, flaky pie crusts, warm pots of soup, cinnamon and sugar and steaming coffee permeate the rest of the house, drawing everyone back to the kitchen.

And cake.  There's always cake.
