About this blog:
Hi there y’all! I’m Mary Frances, the baker/photographer/recipe developer behind this blog. I’m thrilled to have you here. This Internet thing is the greatest ever, huh?
So, “What makes this blog different than the other hundreds of cooking blogs out there?”
Well, here, you will find recipes tested and approved by my quality control team (aka myfamily). I love spending time in the kitchen, experimenting with ingredients and putting my spin on desserts. Disguising strange ingredients is fun and my goal is always to achieve a dessert that is delicious, but also has something in it that is good for you. I don’t always reach that goal, but to me, sweet and rich is what makes a dessert. I cook for six now seven younger sets of picky tastebuds and they try and approve nearly everything I bake.
Recently, I’ve omitted dairy from my diet thanks to a lactose intolerance. So, most of my recipes will be dairy free. And most of my recipes will include whole wheat, lower sugar and fat, and healthy ingredients with the goal of putting good food into our bodies. I have a crazy sweet tooth, especially when it comes to chocolate, so if chocolate (or peanut butter!) seems to be a recurring theme, it is! 🙂
That being said, I don’t believe any ingredient is bad because the key is moderation. I still bake desserts for my family and friends that include dairy, and I still bake decadent dairy free desserts for myself, even if they aren’t “healthy.” I believe the term “healthy” can be used extremely. Most of the time, put the good-for-you food in your body, but don’t deprive yourself from things like chocolate! 🙂 I believe God gives us passions to bless others. I have a passion for baking and I hope you can use these recipes I share to bless your family and friends. I also believe God wants us to take care of our bodies and that includes a healthy diet – in moderation.
I do spend hours creating, baking, and photographing my recipes, so if you would like to repost it, please link back to the original post. All recipes are created by me unless noted in the recipe.
Since this began as an English assignment, I also have posts devoted to life and what I’m thinking. I hope you enjoy! Here is a post about camp, one about what club volleyball has taught me and more on my thoughts about healthy. Most recently, I’ve started a “Things I’m Loving” post series highlighting favorites from my week.
**I am a Pinterest junkie like a lot of you, but I do ask that you don’t pin any photos of me or my family. Thanks!**

Now that we are done with the blog, lets move on to me . . . because, you know, talking about yourself is fun! 🙂
I love Jesus. And my family. Even more than chocolate. Take me to Chipotle and I’ll be your best friend, remind me about burpees and our friendship is over.
Hint: Chipotle mends lots of things. Even burpee faux pas.
I play piano and volleyball, have a secret fashion obsession, have a not so secret lack of fashion (hello there sweatpants) consider dance parties a daily requirement, and am a Spotify addict.
My favorite food is Mexican … and barbeque chips. Not together.
My favorite dessert is a good ole thick chewy brownie.
My favorite people are you reading this right now. Cheers y’all! Tell me about yourself below and have a wonderful day!
