Hello there and welcome to Browned Butter Blondie! I blog to get you baking.
A little bit about me. If you haven’t already guessed, I’m the blondie. I love writing, baking and photography. I cook too, but I bake more. I am the mom of three girls (all with a sweet tooth), one cute pup and five feisty chickens. Clutter makes me crazy, running keeps me sane and I’ve never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like. I’m a big fan of lemon groves, thank you notes and salted caramel anything. My inspiration in the kitchen comes from family traditions, travels to places near and far and the joy that comes from sharing good food with friends. I relish any opportunity to host loved ones in my home for a delicious meal from start to sweet.
My idea for this blog came from my days spent knee deep in english almond toffee as founder of The Toffee Box. While making pound after pound of delectable confections for a living was definitely the sweet life, I am thrilled to begin this new venture at Browned Butter Blondie. After many years of running a commercial confections business it’s safe to say I know a thing or two around the kitchen. And after a decade of hand crafting toffee, I’m forever addicted to all things browned butter … hence the nickname. With Browned Butter Blondie, I wanted to create a space that is more than just adding equal parts sugar and butter with a dash of vanilla. Here at BBB, we go beyond the baking. I believe the best kind of food is the kind that tells a story and is shared with those that matter most.
At Browned Butter Blondie, my insatiable sweet tooth hopes to inspire the home cook or budding baker in you with delicious, approachable, i-can-make-that-too recipes. The recipes you’ll find on the blog are mostly sweet, sometimes savory. You’ll find plenty of indulgence with a side of healthy-ish. The food you find here on BBB is the food I eat and the food I plate up for my personal party of five. You’ll quickly come to find I’m definitely an everything-in-moderation kinda girl. Outside my little corner of the internet in Rancho Santa Fe California, you’ll find me looking for any excuse to eat more sweets while exploring new destinations and sharing favorite finds that are too delish to keep to myself.
We all know that times are busier than ever because, well, #life. In these crazy days it’s becoming the new norm to expect all of our food to be “fast”, “easy” and on the table in “20 minutes or less” so we can hurry to check off the next item on our ever growing to-do list. While it’s not every day we can all take the time to whip up a batch of (fill in the blank) from scratch, I hope you’ll find something (or lots of somethings) that make their way to your table. I’m so grateful for foodies like you that crave great food and good company.
Thanks for stopping by!
