Hi everyone! So some of you—friends, family—may already know that I used to run The Beachside Baker, waaaaaay back when. Think like…2010 era. It honestly was just a fun way for me to keep track of things I cooked or baked, while also having a place to document my life experiences for those who lived back home (I moved from my hometown of Manteca, CA to Long Beach in 2009).
While I had absolutely no skill in food photography whatsoever (which is embarassingly present if you scroll back in history in The Beachside Baker Instagram feed), I kept it going for quite a while. It wasn’t until I became knee-deep in care plans and clinical rotations in nursing school that I started to leave blogging behind. Nursing school was no joke! I was literally running on caffeine half the time! There was no way I could find time to cook and bake, let alone write and schedule blog posts!
Well, here we are now, almost 9 years later. Since then we’ve experienced marriage, kids, career, and a big move from Long Beach to Escondido, and while in between jobs, I’ve found myself with more time to bake and cook than ever. I’ve been pretty active on the Instagram account for the last two months, but with as much as I’ve been doing, I keep asking myself, “Why not just start up the blog again?” So here we are.
The Beachside Baker 2.0!
I may convert some of the previous Instagram posts from the last few months into blog posts here before I start updating directly to the blog. That way those recipes can also be easily accessible here.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something here that you can enjoy!
