About Danielle 

Hi there, I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Danielle, the baker and author behind Live Well Bake Often.

A picture of Danielle in a green shirt in her kitchen.Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a passion for being in the kitchen and baking desserts. As a child, I remember helping my mom bake chocolate chip cookies, no-bake cookies, and box cake mixes any chance that I could. Although I’m not sure that I was much help, I really just loved to lick the beaters. 

Over the years, I started to use baking as a creative outlet while I was working at a desk job. Even though I had a great job, I felt like something was missing. It was during that time that my husband convinced me to start a food blog to work on in my spare time. 

In April of 2014 I started Live Well Bake Often so that I could share my recipes with others and keep them in one place. I quickly began to fall in love with creating desserts to share on my website and teaching people the science behind baking. 

What started as a hobby has now turned into an online recipe destination visited by millions of people each month. I now work on Live Well Bake Often as my full-time job and I’m so incredibly thankful that I get to do what I love every single day.

About Live Well Bake Often

I’ve spent years teaching myself how to bake through trial and error and I’ve learned a lot. My goal is to take the difficulty out of baking and make it easy for you! 

Here at Live Well Bake Often you’ll find hundreds of classic baked goods and desserts that I’ve created in my own kitchen. All of the recipes on my site are tested multiple times to ensure their accuracy. You’ll also find step-by-step instructions and as much detail as possible with each recipe because I want you to have 100% success when you make them.

My hope is that Live Well Bake Often will be your ultimate resource for baking. I want you to feel completely confident when it comes to making any recipe on my site – even if you’ve never baked from scratch in your entire life.
