A cup of this, a Dash of that, and a shelf of bookish-goodness

This blog really isn’t about baking; but you’ll see cakes, pies, cookies,
and the occasional kitchen wizardry. It’s not about books or literature, although my soul craves words more than carbs. This niche space is about me living authentically with my mental illness–and I do that by sharing my book and baking (mis)adventures.

Hi, I’m Jennifer. I’m a regular gal, living in the Midwest, with fairly average struggles and dreams.

I can’t promise to bring you the most insightful literary reviews,
well-crafted essays, or blue-ribbon recipes. I can, however, share my messy realities. Sometimes that mess is in the kitchen and sometimes it’s in my mind. My hope is that, in speaking plainly and without judgement, I can chip away at mental illness stigma. (This is just as much a reminder for myself.)

Hang on to your apron–flour tends to end up everywhere, bookshelves included.
