Hi there! I’m Liz, a home baker in Portland, Oregon. Welcome to my baking blog.

Baking is just a hobby of mine, but like a hobby where I spend most of my most evenings and weekends covered in flour and running to the grocery store because I’m always out of butter.

Make Me Bake is inspired by love of baking for special occasions. I get too excited when someone gives me a reason to bake, such as, “____ has a birthday coming up.” Music to my ears! “Would you like to come over for dinner on Friday?” Yes, I’ll bring six desserts! “We have a sign up sheet for anyone who wants to bring snacks for the staff holiday party–” GET OUT OF MY WAY!

But I don’t always need a special reason to bake. Sometimes I’m just hungry.

I created this blog because there are few things more satisfying to me than sharing my creations with friends and family, even if it’s just through pictures and writing. Here I’ll post my recipes, tips and photos from my kitchen adventures. I’m always looking for a new reason to bake, and I hope what you read here will give you a reason to bake, too.

If you have any questions, or just want to say hi, send me an email via the contact form below. Also, don’t forget to check out Make Me Bake on Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Baking!

– Liz
