I’m Christina, and Whip This Up is this newlywed’s excuse to create delicious and beautiful things, and hopefully inspire others to do the same!
I love cooking with whole foods, especially when it comes to baked confections. If you start with great ingredients, the end result will rarely disappoint…especially if one of those ingredients is chocolate. Or peanut butter. OR cheese (although maybe not all in one bowl).
So why should you listen to my rants and raves? Here’s a bio: I sold my baked goods in Atlanta at a monthly foodie event throughout 2012, where the crowd favorites were riffs on classic snack cakes like Homemade Pop Tarts, Homemade Hostess Cupcakes, and my favorite: Maple Bacon Whoopie Pies. I also supplied my favorite Atlanta bakery with whoopie pies until we moved to Tampa, Florida in 2013.
This blog is the perfect opportunity to turn on the oven, turn down the thermostat and get back to experimenting in the kitchen. Best part? Now, I’m able to eat all of the fruits of my labor (oh puns).
Behold Mischa The Husky. Mischa hopes that I cook many foods with bacon, for the scraps. So does Eric The Husband.
I just received a bunch of glorious kitchen gifts. Join me as I wear them out!
