Welcome to Flour de Liz! I'm Liz, and this was my kitchen. Yup, this was it! I had the stove and the fridge on my right, and the sink and one square of yellow counter space (which we used for our portable dishwasher) on my left. That's it! That was the whole kitchen! My baking was all done on a fold-up card table in the middle of the living room, or sometimes on my lap while sitting on the couch. This is one of many reasons I like to keep my recipes as simple as possible.
I started creating my own recipes when I realized that baking blogs usually shared complicated and time-consuming recipes that needed a lot of kitchen equipment and a lot of ingredients. I didn't have the space or the patience or the equipment needed for so many of these recipes. But I knew that baking did not need to be difficult! That's why I try to focus on quick and easy recipes, using as few ingredients and as few dishes as possible. Generally, the most equipment you'll need for my recipes is a mixer, and often you won't even need that. (Okay, there is a rare need for a candy thermometer, but those are small!)
When my grandma mentioned that I should write a cookbook, that inspired me to turn my super simple recipes into a blog. As much as I love to make these recipes for my friends and family, I also love being able to share them with you! It makes me so incredibly happy to see people spread love through food using my recipes!
In addition to baking (and sweets in general), I love dogs, being outdoors, and traveling. I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky and I currently live just outside of Boston with my husband, Mike.
