Hi everyone! Welcome to I Need to Bake! It is called this because I am always saying to myself, “I really need to bake something.” It is pretty much all I think about. It is not only a hobby, but a nice stress reliever.
A little about me. I am married with a one year old son. Both he and my husband are amazing! I am also a high school guidance counselor. Although it has its challenges, I absolutely love my job. Having the summer off is pretty nice too! For this upcoming school year, I hope to start a baking club with the students. I have a ton of ideas I would like to do with it and hope students are interested with great ideas of there own. More on that later.
I love looking at other baking blogs. All of the writers are so creative and talented. I always think, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” When I bake something, I follow a recipe word for word. I don’t think I have the confidence to stray from it. I have ideas or thoughts of what I could do differently, but I just never do it. I am always afraid I will create a huge disaster, but that should be part of all the fun, right? I am hoping this blog will help me to get to the point where I begin experimenting with different ingredients or taking recipes and put my own little spin on them. I want to eventually share my own successful desserts.
That about sums up my introduction. I am sure you will learn more about me as I take you on my journey of baking and beyond. I hope to have my first dessert post up very soon!
