About


Hi! My name is Emily and I love food. That's probably obvious, right?

Even more than my love for all things edible (excluding olives which are just repulsive), I absolutely adore baking. I'm not sure how it happened, but at some point in my life I found myself addicted to my Google Reader of 40+ food blogs, bookmarking oodles of recipes to try, making layer cakes, brownies, cookies, pies. My husband and I also cook dinner together most nights (it's one of the things we really enjoy) and we make it a point to buy fresh ingredients whenever possible. I'm still feeling my way around the kitchen when it comes to cooking, but baking treats is where my true passion lies. I'm completely self-taught and attribute everything I've learned to the amazing fellow bloggers that I follow.

I currently reside in Salt Lake City, UT with my husband, Danny. Some of my other interests are photography, playing piano, reading a good fiction novel (I tend to obsess over series like Harry Potter), and eventually learning how to snowboard.

Feel free to drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you! justgivemecake@gmail.com
