Hi everyone! Welcome to I Need to Bake! It is called this because I am always saying to myself, “I really need to bake something.” It is not only a hobby, but my stress reliever.
A little about me. I am married with a two year old son and a little girl on the way. I am also a high school guidance counselor. Although it has its challenges, I absolutely love my job. Having the summer off is pretty nice too!
I love looking at other baking blogs. All of the writers are so creative and talented. I always think, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” When I bake something, I follow a recipe word for word. I don’t think I have the confidence to stray from it. I have ideas or thoughts of what I could do differently, but I just never do it. I am always afraid I will create a huge disaster, but that should be part of all the fun, right? This blog is all about me experimenting with different ingredients and trying recipes that I would normally avoid. I want to eventually share my own successful desserts.
That about sums up my introduction. I am sure you will learn more about me as I take you on my journey of baking and beyond.
