I grew up on the Canadian prairies and spent a lot of my childhood in the kitchen, cooking and baking with my mom and grandmothers. Over the last twenty years I’ve spent countless hours in my own kitchen preparing food for my family and friends and I’ve fallen in love with cooking and baking…and learned a thing or two along the way!
I started The Busy Baker as a personal blog in 2015 to share recipes with friends and family after transitioning out of my previous career as a middle school Special Education teacher. The Busy Baker quickly evolved into a business that has allowed me to develop, photograph and publish over 800 delicious recipes and have my work featured on countless online media platforms like The Pioneer Woman, Oprah Daily, Southern Living, Country Living, Taste of Home, Prevention, Forbes, and more.
Here at The Busy Baker we cook and bake mostly from scratch, so you won’t find very many highly-processed foods in our ingredient lists – we enjoy fresh, local and in-season foods as much as possible. We share a wide range of recipes from simple baked goods and easy & wholesome family meals to our favourite vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free and even low carb recipes. I hope you’ll find some recipes here on The Busy Baker that you’ll enjoy making in your own kitchen.
In addition to the hundreds of recipes published on The Busy Baker, we also share our favourite kitchen tips and tricks, basic skills for cooking and baking, and hundreds of video tutorials to help you become confident in the kitchen.
