My name is Nia and I like to bake. It’s pretty much as simple as that. I’m 19, and I am a college student in New York City studying literature and education. Food has always been important to me and my family. I remember being just a little girl and watching my mom cook dinner. Maybe I’d even get to stir the pasta sauce if I was lucky. That fascination with food (and really, I mostly just like to eat it) has morphed over the years and manifested itself in me as a desire to bake. I don’t know when it happened, but at some point not too long ago I woke up one morning and (in my head, of course) declared, I am a baker. Baking is more than just a means to get to eat some delicious sweets (although it is that too), but also an outlet– both creative and emotional. I hope with this blog, I not only continue to be inspired to bake and create, but can share this excitement and joy with you.
