I’m Kristan (pronounced Kris TANNE, not to be confused with the ever popular Krist TEN). And this is my blog.
I’m a proud housewife with a son in the second grade and a sweet baby girl.
Like most little boys, my son is funny and cute but a little weird. Which only makes me love him more.
And the toddler?
Her sippy cup is never full enough, her hands are never cookied enough, and my arms are never carrying her enough.
Isn’t that the way? I hear that it ends eventually. I don’t know if I believe it.
I spend too much money on make-up, shoes, and adorable frilly toddler clothes.
The hair bows alone could bankrupt me. Oh online shopping…why do you beckon me so?
I eat my kid’s Fruit Roll-Ups. As in…the whole box.
I believe in cake mix.
I love watching questionable television, but I balance it out with lots and lots of books.
I live in Fort Smith, Arkansas. But I mostly stay home and pretend that I’m in an apartment smack dab in the middle of New York City. It gets me by.
I want baking to be cool. Of course, I’m not cool, but I’m hoping that someone cool will read my blog and make sure that baking sweeps the nation. Or the world. Whatever.
If I could, I would paint my life pink, sprinkle it with glitter, and give everyone a cupcake.
I believe in having fun, telling the truth, and making fun of myself. And everyone else, for that matter.
And I’m a prime example that even the most imperfect people can create fabulous things in the kitchen.
I have no formal training, other than some cake decorating classes I took a few years back at Michaels craft store. I do some cake and cookie decorating from my home, and I feature those projects from time to time. Mainly though, I just want to present good recipes in a very approachable way.
I’d love for you to comment on any posts that you enjoy…and if you don’t enjoy it, just leave a comment pretending that you did.
You can also email me with any questions, comments, or advice on how to hack it in the country.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!!!
