Welcome to Bake It With Love (formerly delectablecookingandbaking.com), we are so glad that you have found us! A little bit of info about us…our family of four has recently been reduced to three as our oldest (Logan) has joined the military. Dad (Ed) and Mom (Angela) love cooking – both tried and true recipes, and our latest experiments. We are frequently joined in the kitchen by our daughter (Lauren) to help, even if it is just enjoying the results! She even loves to photograph the food right along with Mom and Dad…
Most of the posts throughout Delectable are authored by me (Angela) at this time since I am also a stay-at-home mom. Even though the wording is mine, a lot of the work done on our recipes comes from my husband’s creative side. It is to his credit that I have expanded my capabilities in the kitchen, even though I was a very capable cook when we met.
My experience in the kitchen started at a young age as my Grandma Janet’s (affectionately known as Granny Janny) baking assistant. I have quite a bit of her kitchen decor, and I treasure having her copper cookie cutters and gingerbread molds (both copper and ceramic). Most importantly, I treasure all of my wonderful memories of such a fantastic lady…standing shoulder to shoulder, rolling out sugar cookie dough at Christmastime. Ok, yes I was on a step stool to reach the counter but you get the picture. Very fond memories. And when I smell sugar cookies, oatmeal molasses cookies or gingerbread I immediately feel the nostalgia coming on strong. Granny was equally amazing at all things in the kitchen (chewy breads with a crispy crust and to-die-for jams come to mind too!) but I obsess over cookies, so this is her story that I share when I don’t have the time to pop open a bottle of red wine and give the tale justice.
We hope that you enjoy our place on the web, our recipes and photos, and that you feel free to ask any questions you may have about recipe particulars. We do try and respond as quickly as possible during the week, with weekends being spent away from the computer and devoted to quality family time and (weather permitting) some time in the fresh air.
