Hey there! I’m Cate. I tend to bake when I’m bored, stressed, excited, or just feel like it — which is pretty often. I like to bake. A lot. I also like to run long distances, so things sort of even out for me. This blog is about both of those things, plus travel. In other words, it’s about the primary things that bring me joy.
There are about a million food blogs out there, and I have no aspirations to make this a full time gig. It’s an opportunity to write about the stuff I care about without worrying about it too much. In real life, I’m a freelance writer and copy editor (hire me!), and that’s what pays the bills.
I tend to like to try new recipes a lot, and then I forget which ones worked out, which ones were total failures, which ones I would try again with some tweaks. So, I’m writing all that down here and sharing it with my friends and my mom and anyone who randomly stumbles across the site.
If you’re one of those random folks, welcome! I started this blog while teaching college English at a small liberal arts college in South Carolina, but as of November 2018 I’m on the road — living the digital nomad life until I decide where to settle next.. I’ve been baking since I was like twelve, have a raging sweet tooth, and am something of a baked-goods snob as a result.
