So, I haven’t said it “out loud” on here yet…but as I have mentioned a few times on Bakerita already, I just graduated from college. I moved to Seattle…and I’m purposefully not looking for a job. As I struggled to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I was presented with a couple of opportunities that inspired me to choose the less conventional path: working on Bakerita.

It’s sort of hard and scary to be intentionally not trying to find a job after graduating from college, but the temptation and draw of working for myself and doing what I love is inspiring me to take a risk, while I can. I’m beyond grateful to have family, friends, and you – my readers – to support me, because without anyone reading Bakerita, there’s no way I could do what I do. [Read more…]

When it comes to eating breakfast, I am sooo a creature of habit. I get into a breakfast routine, and I stick to it. Since I started college, I’ve been almost perpetually stuck in the same breakfast routine of yogurt, berries, and granola.

The yogurt has graduated from my younger years, when I ate only low-fat vanilla yogurt. While I used to scoff at Greek yogurt, and I now love the stuff. It’s thick and creamy and makes breakfast just so much better. [Read more…]

These flavorful cookies take just 5 ingredients and are totally gluten-free, Paleo-friendly, and refined sugar free.Sometimes I don’t like saying a recipe is Paleo, and gluten-free, and refined sugar-free, because I feel like the people who don’t need or choose to follow those diets just dismiss them as not as good as the sugar-y stuff. And it’s wrong, I tell you!

These cookies are super secretly healthy (not that anyone would know from tasting them) and so easy to make (just five ingredients!!!) and so tender that they seriously just melt in your mouth. They’re moist and soft and just a little crumbly. My housemates devoured them, and we were all sad when these were gone off the cookie plate. [Read more…]

This Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter is a decadent and smooth homemade nut butter that's way cheaper to make at home. Enjoy it in your oatmeal or with apples!

Let me start by saying that this full jar of dark chocolate coconut almond butter was finished in about a week flat. I ate this stuff like, 3 times a day on everything from toast to apples to a spoon. It’s so wonderfully addictive, and I can’t promise it’s going to last long in your house!

I’m a nut butter addict, and while I used to be allllll about peanut butter (evident by the 25 peanut butter recipes you can find in my recipe index), I think I’m slowly but surely converting to almond butter for most things that use nut butters. And I absolutely LOVE creating new flavors of almond butters. This one is definitely my favorite that I’ve made so far. It’s pure heaven for a chocolate and coconut lover like me. [Read more…]

I started work today! I was lucky enough to get an amazing internship at T-Mobile this summer, and I had my first day today. It was amazing and exciting and I’m beyond excited about the summer ahead. My official title is Social Media & Employer Brand Intern, which totally fits with what I love to do here on Bakerita! I’m super psyched about all that I have to learn and experience with such a great team.

All that being said, I’m exhausted from my hour and a half commute (yikes…I know) so this is going to be short and sweet. [Read more…]
