Welcome to Daisy Bites!
Hiiii!!! Thanks for visiting me and Daisy! I hope you will accompany me on my baking adventures, which I will chronicle with lots of pictures (I love pictures), recipes, and occasional ramblings that may or may not have anything to do with baking. Daisy will frequent my blog with pictures, stories, and life updates, because – let’s be honest – who doesn’t want to hear about an adorable little puppy? (…though she is not so little anymore!) I love baking and I love my puppy, and I’m excited to share my loves with anyone who will listen (or read, in this case)!

(Peyton Manning is at the top of this list, I’m sure.) I have to agree, considering I only watched until halftime because my boyfriend got bored. Now, if HE turned off the Super Bowl, you know it had to […] Funfetti Sugar Cookies January 25, 2014 - I think I’ve maybe mentioned it in passing, but I want to come clean about something: I love sprinkles. Yes, I know; I’m 5 years old at heart, and bright colors are my favorite. I also love sugar, and baking, as you very well know by now. From these facts, it can be inferred that […] Bakeology: Eggs…Unscrambled January 11, 2014 - Today’s lesson is about eggs and their role in baking. In pastries, eggs act as a glue that helps bind things together. They add proteins, moisture, and fat to baked goods, and give structure and texture to a dish. Egg whites act as a leavening agent, and when heated, stirred, or whipped, the proteins in […] Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Birthday Cake January 6, 2014 - Let me start this post by reminding you of a very important fact: Today is my birthday…at least it is for 10 more minutes…So, to say goodbye to 25, here are 25 highlights of my 25th year of life: I adopted and fell completely in love with the most amazing puppy in the whole world, […] Always believe… December 29, 2013 - you are a beautiful cupcake in a world full of muffins Blog of the Year Award December 23, 2013 - Well, Christmas is but 2 days away and 2013 is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some fun to be had before the bright, shiny ball drops from the sky!
