Hiya! I’m Mikaela. I like to bake, read, take photos, and hike with my fluffernutter puppy named Darwin.
I grew up in the Wasatch mountains, where hiking trails and ski resorts were 25 minutes from my front door. I traded mountains for Bay Area breezes and Northern California coastlines, when I attended Santa Clara University School of Law. I fell in love with chilly beach mornings, year-round farmers markets, and the feel of sunshine on my face while walking the San Francisco piers. But I missed the mountains terribly.
And so my husband and I came to the Rocky Mountains, where we live and work and play and try to survive the cold and snowy winters. I work in patent litigation at an international law firm, helping hot-shot companies duke it out over the newest and greatest technologies. While I have my work personality, my home personality would make said companies sit down at the dinner table and talk it out over some cookies and milk. Cooking, baking, and this blog are my escape from the stress, my reminder to do what I love, and the archives of my life, one snack/dinner/dessert at a time.
Thanks for stopping in. If you have any questions, feel free to check out my frequently asked questions.
