A Bit More About Me

10253-mms-1466385707624-attachment1-2016061995201319Hi, my name is Jen and I’m beginning a quest. A quest to not only better my skills at baking, but to ultimately hone the craft of baking treats and goodies that incorporate healthier, alternative ingredients.I’m pretty much starting from the beginning, taking classes to learn proper baking techniques and fundamentals and then transitioning in learning about healthier, 21st century style baking techniques and recipes. I would love for any of you to follow me along on this journey!

I am a passionate person. I am a lover of animals and nature (I’m a vegetarian, so the preservation, care and respect of animals and the environment are important to me), exploring nature, anything Harry Potter, fashion and tattoos. I’m an aspiring gardener, a wanderer and dreamer. A hippie, flour girl (like the pun?) at heart. I don’t go by convention and absolutely prefer to march, or more so dance and bake, to the beat of my own drum (and whisk). I even have an Edgar Allen Poe quote tattooed on my arm that represents one part of how i want to live my life: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only by night.”
To me, it’s all about imagination, a free spirit and marching to the beat of my own drum. Be out in nature as much as you can and incorporate it into life and for that matter, why not baking?
I feel like I am embodying a person with a beatnik attitude. To be different, try new things and embrace being an individual. This hipster, dessert loving girl wants to be a healthy baking artist. Therefore, I present to you, the Beatnik Baker.
