Hey guys!  I am Cassie and I am so grateful for you being here.  Let me give you a few details about the blog:  Bake Your Day was started out of and is simply about my love for food, for people and for life.  My life has always revolved around food and people.  We all eat, we all love food, and no matter the party, everyone always ends up gathering in the kitchen.

I love the idea of living life well, especially living well through food.  That means that I attempt to treat my body well through the foods that I put in it, but I also leave room for indulgences and I leave room to feed my sweet tooth!

Food is incredibly nostalgic to me; it is comforting; it brings people together; it builds community; and I love nothing more than sitting around a table with others, breaking bread and sharing in conversation.  That’s how we share life!  I am honored that you have found yourself here and I sincerely hope you’ll find some delicious treats and meaningful inspiration to get cooking!

And here’s a bit about me:  Everyday I strive to enjoy life, to love what I do and to do what I love. I pray that I can somehow be a blessing to you and bring a smile to your face. I believe that God’s plan for my life is bigger and better that anything that I can imagine so I also pray that I can follow His will for my life, fully trust in Him, love my neighbors as myself and love Him with all of my heart, soul, mind and strength (Matthew 22:37-40).

I probably drink too much coffee.  I’m crazy about brown sugar, cinnamon chips, white cheddar cheese and raw cookie dough.  I will choose Twizzlers or Skittles over chocolate any day, and I’m head-over-heels in love with good crispy French fries (smothered in beer cheese sauce?) and guacamole.  I’m also a fool for quinoa, Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, eggs, tomatoes, and mushrooms.  It’s all about balance here, folks.

My husband, Paul, is truly my other half.  This little space would not be what it is today without his support all along the way.  He encouraged me to push publish, he came up with the name and he encourages me every single day.  Paul is Bake Your Day’s resident taste tester, guinea pig and #1 fan who also happens to be supremely patient with me and the best husband that I could have asked for.  I can’t imagine a day without him by my side.  After three years of living with my blogging, habit, he has finally joined the crazy world of blogging himself!  Check out his blog: The Anchor and Cross.

One more thing: I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you.  You, my readers, mean the world to me and I am so blessed by your presence here!  Come back often, cook and bake, a lot, and enjoy every minute of it!  Many blessings to you always!
