I’m Heather! As the writer, recipe developer, baker, photographer and social media manager of this blog since 2011, you’ll usually find me in the kitchen, covered in flour and wrangling two little boys who want to help, or at my laptop editing photos and writing up recipes.
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 my boys help me bake, where people feel warm and comfortable and full, where the lovely aromas of apple crumbles, freshly baked breads and layer cakes, 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.
Living in Colorado at an altitude of 5,280 feet, I’ve spent years testing and re-testing my recipes to perfect them for other high altitude bakers who struggle with baking in the mountains. High altitude baking can be a challenge, with unadapted recipes resulting in sad, sunken cakes and flat cookies. I hope you find my recipes to be a valuable resource to help you with your own high altitude bakes!
