I’m Rachel, the name behind the blog! I’m a New England girl, born and raised, now residing in southern New Hampshire with my husband and our three young children. Our house is often very busy and full of noise. During the rare quiet times I like to sneak into the kitchen to experiment on new recipes.
My love for baking and playing in the kitchen goes as far back as I can remember; from making basic microwave s’mores with my Grandmother to baking cookies in home ec. As a child I enjoyed helping my Mother in the kitchen whenever possible. I’d grate the cheese for lasagna and steal a taste or two along the way, what kid wouldn’t?
Now I bake not only for fun but to feed my own family. Baked by Rachel started out as a hobby, a place to share my favorite recipes. In the beginning it was mostly sweets and other baked goods. Over the years, I’ve found myself sharing more savory dishes than sweets but my love for sweets is strong! What you see here on the blog is what we’re eating, maybe not on a daily basis but every recipe is tested on my strongest critics.
If I could eat bacon and potatoes everyday, I would! I have a serious obsession with bacon, cheese and potatoes. I’m also a bit crazy for cupcakes. Pile the frosting high and I’m a happy girl. You’ll never catch me eating tomatoes, but I will cook with them for my family. If you see a recipe loaded with tomatoes and sauce, it wasn’t for me but I promise I had fun making it.
All of my recipes are easily searchable through the recipe index. Search by category, keyword or ingredient.
