I'm Kerry. I'm a girl and I bake things. But you probably guessed as much, right?

I'm a twenty-something year old working/living/baking in the Bay Area, California, trying to balance being an adult, browning butter, and living life right.

... that usually involves frozen peanut butter cups, iced coffees, running on hidden trails, and hours spent daydreaming of cookie dough and kettlecorn. 

I believe in celebrating the little things in life and that's what this sugary corner of the Internet is all about.

Also I'm kind of addicted to baking.

When I started this blog in 2011, it was my refuge from post-college life. When I wasn't sending out resumes and trying to find my place in the world, I started baking. Adding flour, creaming butter, and stirring in chocolate was so much simpler than dealing with interview prep and lady-blazers.

Now it's my place to pour creativity, share inspiration and bits of my life, and look back on the things I loved... and hopefully inspire others along the way to be fearless in the kitchen too.

It's also my place to make cupcakes... and totally knock them over.

If I could eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be kettlecorn.

My favorite thing to bake are cookie blossoms. It's something about the Kiss and the crinkles.

My favorite cake is a tie between chocolate stout cake with cream cheese frosting and Texas sheet cake. Unless wedding cake counts. Then yes/always.

love piping frosting. I consider turning butter & powdered sugar into buttercream magic.

My favorite show will always and forever be Charmed. (Unless The Vampire Diaries is on.)

My perfect day would involve Christmas, Disneyland, family, and kettlecorn.

I'm training for my first 5K! Running is a new love and I can't wait for my first Color Run race this March. I've run in six 5Ks this year... and am currently training for the Tinkerbell 10k in 2015! I've ran three 10ks, one 15k, a half marathon, and am training for my second 19.3 mile challenge at Disneyland!

I seriously cannot make the perfect pancake to save my life. It's literally never happened, not even once.

I crave pumpkin spice lattes during summer and peppermint lattes during the fall. I will always, always be one season off.

My favorite cookies are anything with peanut butter and marshmallows. Unless there are Lofthouse sugar cookies anywhere near me... #guiltypleasure

I'm addicted to anything that has to do with Harry Potter, Disneyland, Christmas, or cheesecake. It's just who I am.

And as of Christmas 2015... I'm engaged!
