Greetings! I’m Baba, as my kid calls me, and AJ to most. Although I grew up in a restaurant owned and run by my parents, it took me until my thirties to develop a love for baking and cooking.
I like adventurous baking recipes that take time and patience to achieve. People ask me why I started to bake, and I tell them I love how long it takes. I truly love that making a special cake takes me six hours of dedication. I love the process, and I love seeing people enjoy the results.
In cooking, I stick to down-home recipes I enjoyed growing up in both the Ozarks and the Midwest. I like to think I add a little something special from my travels to these recipes. I moved to Denver, Colorado in my early twenties, and by age 31 I had lived in 31 houses.
I guess you can say I like to keep myself moving through life. Baking and cooking has become part of how I’m achieving that on a daily basis. I’m just starting to build my recipes, and I hope you will return for more soon!
Thanks for visiting!
