Thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet! Let me introduce myself.
I’m Alexa. Wife, fur mom, FRIENDS and true crime lover. I’m the blogger behind for goodness bakes.
My love for baking started at a fairly young age. Growing up I watched my aunt bake beautiful Christmas cookies, and eventually joined her every year to crank them out – a tradition we still practice today! After a short stint in culinary school and a few kitchen jobs, I joined the corporate world. But even while working at a desk, my love for food remained. Making custom cakes even became a side hustle for me!
Crafting sweet treats has always been the perfect creative outlet for me, and my favorite way to bring people together. I do all of my baking at my home in Illinois with my husband (and live in taste tester). Of course, we can’t forget our rescue pup named Toby and our cat, Zoe.
I am so excited to share well-tested recipes here with you all, along with kitchen tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way!
