Welcome to my cozy corner, where baking and cooking meets random thoughts and musings. I’m a self-taught baker fighting for kitchen space with my food blogger husband, while sharing all things sweet (and some savory… okay, and some boozy) with a whisk in one hand and a camera in the other.

What you can expect:

Created in 2010, Bakers Royale is where you’ll find recipes I’ve developed myself, but also those I’ve gotten from friends and family, found around the web, in magazines and cookbooks, or TV—I’m pretty much open to any source or inspiration!

The recipes here range from easy to difficult. For the most part, I try to keep things simple with accessible ingredients and no special equipment. But, on occasion, you’ll find fussy recipes that require more detailed work, though I usually do my best to provide a simplified version as an alternative.

How I work:

Here’s the thing. I believe in having fun and not worrying about the failures; learning from mistakes and throwing out most conventions to find inner creativity. Of course there are rules that help towards creating successful recipes, but beyond that, let’s just agree to go for it! Food is all about the experience it brings to you and those you share it with, so there are no rights or wrongs.

I love to hear from you!

I love engaging with my readers and really try my best to respond to every email and comment I receive, but I may miss one now and again, or it may get caught in spam-land. I apologize in advance if this happens. If you have a question about a recipe, please ask it on that post, as others may have the same question. As always, you can also reach me on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by!
