Cooking is most definitely one of my passions. Pasta, soup, cakes, muffins, you name it! I love to try new recipes, and I also really enjoy coming up with new ideas of my own. Why the “blissful bakker” you ask? Bakker is my last name and means “baker” in Dutch. As for the word blissful, that’s how I feel when I’m in the kitchen, usually with a glass of red wine in one hand and a cook book in the other.
My original idea was to make this a cooking blog, but I decided to expand my culinary skills a bit and make this blog all about baking. I mean, how can you not smile when you eat a cupcake? Usually I’m a bit of a health nut but there is always room for dessert!
Last year I had to go gluten free for personal health reasons. ”Gluten free?” I thought. “How does a baker bake without FLOUR?” That being said, I have been learning there is a whole new world out there of gluten free food, even desserts! I have started to experiment with some of my own gluten free recipes which are also now included here on my blog. I will admit I occasionally “cheat” with flour but am trying my best to stay gluten free most of the time…
I currently live in Kingston, Ontario with my little dog Darby. He is a very eager taste tester when it comes to my baking endeavors… if he’s lucky enough to catch a few crumbs off the floor! I hope you enjoy my recipes and photos. Please feel free to comment or send me a quick email if you have any questions.
