Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you are here and reading my blog! I started this blog a few years ago as a response to my 10 year old cousin’s comment at Christmas. I was helping my two younger cousins decorate a gingerbread house on Christmas day and talking about how much I loved cooking and she asked me if I blogged about my cooking and baking – What an amazing idea I thought!! So I decided to set up HollyRachelBakes to log all of the recipes I bake and connect to the online world of other bakers, bloggers and general lovers of food.
I live in Wolverhampton with my lovely husband in a house we are slowly renovating. I love interior design, theatre, wine, dogs, my family and friends, and of course all things food!
My dream would be to enter the Great British Bake Off – so this blog serves as my creative outlet for developing my baking skills and meeting some other like minded creatives along the way.
2016 is set to be an exciting year as my husband and I are hoping to fit a brand new kitchen in our house. The house was built in 1983 and has had the same teeny tiny kitchen since then, with the most horrendous tiles and a serving hatch! So we are planning to knock down a wall and build our dream kitchen – I’m beyond excited to be getting my very own, purpose built kitchen for developing all of my blog recipes for you.
I would love to hear from you and share a recipe or two – so please get in touch to say hello!
