About Me

Meet the Baker!

I'm Becky and I'm a single Mom of two fabulous and crazy boys! I work several jobs, including catering while attending college (again!) and studying ASL!  I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up (don't rush me, there's still time) but I know it has something to do with baking, cooking, or interpreting ASL!

In my spare time (hee hee) I pretty much live in my little kitchen.  I am always baking delicious goodies for my boys, my friends and family, and my clients. While I am known as a baker I also love to cook, pretty much anything, as long is there is a lot of garlic in it and it goes well with red wine!

I was raised by my Mom, a fabulous cook and baker, who made everything from scratch.  She was an adventurous cook and so I not only ate really well but I learned at a young age to try new things.  I loved sitting on the kitchen counter when I was really young and watching her work, then helping her as I got older, learning how she turned all of those ingredients into something fabulous to eat.  I grew up seeing food and cooking as something fun, not a chore.  I am trying to teach my boys how much fun it can be too!

I hope you enjoy my blog, my recipes, and my silly stories.  I look forward to sharing my love of food with you and maybe even teaching you something new!



  1. Hi Becky!
    I am getting ready for a Begining Baking Class and decided to change it up - I got my hands on the book What's New Cupcake, and while I also am not a cake fan, love the decorating ideas in this book - I have wowed friends with cupcakes and some are pretty darn easy. So decided the kids would make scratch cupcakes and then decorate, so I am using some of your recipes! I am going to do a test run of the chocolate toffee today. Thanks for having such a great blog that I knew I could do the cupcakes first time with the kids and not worry that the recipe would come out weird!

    1. Thanks so much! I am glad that you enjoy my blog and my recipes! I wish you good luck with your baking class and look forward to reading all about it on your blog! :)

  2. I missed this the numerous times I have been here visiting. My daughter is also raising boys by herself and hats off to you lady. That's a full time job as it is.
    Oh yes, you are FFFFF this week but you are always one of Evelyn's Faves:) I couldn't answer your comments via email because it shows you are a noreply commentator. Not sure if you know that or not. I was until a friend told me and I googled it and changed it, now I get replies from my bloggies when I leave a comment on their blog:)
    Will be checking back all week:) And of course I will be sharing the Fave's all week on Facebook etc:)
    Have a super terrific weekend!

  3. What a great blog. I just found you via FFF and wanted to check out this BAKER Becky! =) My last name is Baker too...love what you're sharing here. Would love for you to come over and visit me sometime too...www.thebetterbaker.blogspot.com. And would be thrilled to have you join us on Fridays for Weekend Potluck linky party, though this Friday is the last for me for a few weeks as we will be going on vacation . Kudos to you raising two boys alone too. I love making memories in the kitchen with my grandkids. Keep on doing what you do best!

  4. HI Becky I am in love with your Pink Cake with the cheetah print on the inside and the little shoes on top. I asked my baker if this was something she could do and she was not sure how to do it. Is there any way I could get some instructions to share with her so we can have this amazing cake for my sister Baby shower.
    Thanks J.Anderson
