 WHY THE NAME  . . . Get Off Your Butt and BAKE

Growing up, I learned to cook from my sweet Mom. She was busy raising 6 kids and often left the cookie jar task to me. As long as I would clean up the mess, she gave me free reign in her kitchen. I learned to make meals, but my true passion was creating desserts & other delectable sweets.

My 3 pesky brothers, could empty the cookie jar as fast as I could fill it. It seemed they were always taunting me . . . “Get Off Your Butt and Bake something!”

It was only logical, to bring this name to life on my baking blog.

I  urge you to stop buying and start baking again. It’s fun and relaxing and gives you a sense of purpose.

Mouth watering pictures, step by step narration and tutorials, will keep you yearning and learning for more.
