Love, Life & Chocolate Cake is a lifestyle blog, focusing on parenting, home management and organization, and delicious dishes that help make life more enjoyable. I believe balance makes the world go round, so my posts reflect that approach.. .
For example, the recipes I make are mostly whole and healthy food, but I balance it out with my weekly batch of chocolate chip cookies. (Enjoy a virtual treat on me with this AMAZING in all caps Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.) And while parenting definitely requires work (Am I right?), it is also a lot of fun, creativity, and play. Finally, while I wish my home were always the picture of perfection, it is more a balance of clean and chaotic. Can you relate?
My ideas and recipes aren’t perfect but neither am I. After all, aren’t we all just trying to do the best we can with what we’ve got? Hopefully, this blog will make your life a little easier, a little richer, or a little more fulfilled. If nothing else, I hope it makes it more delicious.
About me? I am a wife and a mama to two boys, ages 3 and 1, that keep me on my toes 100% of the time. We currently live in the Salt Lake City area near the beautiful Rocky Mountains. I graduated from BYU with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and have managed the home front since finishing school. I enjoy celebrating everything in life, big or small, and throw parties any chance that I get. (Check out this decadent Lemon Blackberry and Poppy Seed cake from our family’s recent birthday celebrations. Yes! We were all born within 1 month of each other.) My hobbies involve mainly food—making it, eating it, researching it, and even shopping for it. I love food. So, you’ll find food glorious food woven into all the topics I write about on this blog.
