About the Baker

Hello! My name is Jessica and I am a long time home baker that finally decided to share my adventures in baking! My idea for this blog came about because I love to bake and many people tell me that they could never make the recipes I try. That’s not true – I’m no exceptional baker (though I like to think I have a bit of talent) but mainly I like to challenge my brain to make things that most people buy. I’m an engineer, so the science of baking fascinates me and creating something that I’ve only seen in a shop is extremely rewarding!

The concept for my blog is to take the craft beers we find in San Diego and turn them into some sort of baked treat, some times sweet and sometimes savory. My husband and I are also huge fans of trying all the craft coffee shops where we travel so I want to combine some of their best brews into my cake, brownie and cookie recipes.

This blog basically exists at the intersection of my passions: baking, beer/coffee brews and travel. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to sharing this journey!
