I’m Connie and I’m a twenty-something self-taught baker and amateur photographer. When you grow up with a mom who is a great cook, a father who farms in the backyard, and a sister who bakes, you are destined to be obsessed with making food. I’m a baker in practice and an all around foodie at heart. There’s nothing that brings people together quite like food does, so I spend a lot of time seeking good food and attempting to make it at home. I started Whisks and Whimsy to chronicle some of the treats coming out of my kitchen and I hope it can serve as a source of inspiration to bakers and non-bakers alike.

On a more personal note, I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, lived in New York City for 6 years, and now live in Houston, Texas. My husband, Andrew, tastes everything I make, and my two dogs, Riley and Cooper, sweep up the crumbs and console me during baking disasters.

In addition to blogging on Whisks and Whimsy, you can also find me posting on Instagram and pinning on Pinterest. Follow me if you’d like!
