Dear Reader,

Welcome to my blog!  After many, many months of debating whether or not to start a blog, I finally started blogging in June 2013.  There’s really no reason why this was a particularly good time except, well, I had just graduated from college and I didn’t quite know what I was doing with my life.  Also, I really like to cook and bake and share food with people.

I had dabbled in blogging before (Exhibit A: Hashtags and History, my blog for a digital history class; Exhibit B: T-Shirt Hackers, a family crafting blog, please excuse my little sister’s prom dress search photos), but never food blogging.  Since I spend far too much time browsing FoodGawker, I figured it was probably about time I joined in the fun.

Which brings me to The Wordy Baker!  As I previously mentioned, I love cooking and especially baking, but I also love stories.  Which means I can be a bit verbose (or wordy…) sometimes.  This blog is a space for me to share my thoughts on food, and occasionally on life, with all of you lovely Readers.  I try to post twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Saturdays are dedicated to my childhood hero, Laura Ingalls Wilder, when I post baking recipes according to the old rhyme which I learned from her books: “Wash on Monday, iron on Tuesday…bake on Saturday.”

You may notice a dearth of posts between 2015 and 2017. I took an (unplanned) break from blogging when I went to grad school. But with another degree now under my belt and permanent three-day weekends, I’m plunging back into the blogosphere. While I’ve always written about food and travel, I’ll now be sharing some of my craft projects, too.
