My name’s Dan. I’m just a guy who started baking because he needed some way of expressing himself when words would often fail him. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to share oven-fresh muffins with friends and family, or to present them with birthday cakes made from scratch. And it’s so easy to brighten up someone’s day just by presenting him or her with a homemade cookie.
I got my first proper oven when my family moved to a new house back in 2006 and since then I’ve been hooked! I’ve not had any professional training or attended any classes. But I’ve learned hugely from a gazillion hours of cooking shows, stacks of recipe books, and just pure trial-and-error. And I’m still learning more every time I turn on the oven! This blog shares my knowledge of and experiences with baking in a manner very accessible to newbies.
