Hello there, I’m Emmy and I am the author, cook, baker and photographer behind this blog, Everything Emmy. I live in Utah and I am a wife to my very best friend and mom to three lovelies, one girl and two boys and they are my everything. I am super grateful to be able to stay home and be the cheer mom, basketball mom, flag football mom, transportation mom, keeper of the home and of course, chef for my family. I also cater for small events and I love entertaining and throwing parties whenever I can.
I started this blog to share my passion, knowledge and love for all things food. A little disclaimer here though, I wasn’t always a great baker/cook. Whenever I would bake, everything would immediately fail (and then repeat this process several times). I wanted so much to be this amazing baker/cook and I was determined to succeed at this craft. I began by reading through hundreds of cookbooks, pored over food magazines and watched endless cooking shows to increase my knowledge and understanding of food and baking. I tested recipes endlessly, until I felt like I had the best cookie, or that perfect chocolate cupcake. So therefore, through a lot of trail and error, I am a self-taught baker and cook. I still love to collect cookbooks and read them cover to cover, as well as reading food magazines so I can always stay up to date with the latest food trends. I also enjoy home organization, and interior decorating.
My hope is to share my recipes, added with bits of everything in my life. I hope to inspire the inner baker and cook in you, with recipes that will help you try new things and become more confident in the kitchen. I hope you’ll take time to make and bake homemade food from scratch, using fresh, good-quality ingredients and to sit down and just enjoy good food! Because after all, in the words of Julia Child, “People who love to eat, are always the BEST people”.
