Hi, I'm Lana!

Since I was young I've loved to bake. I also love traveling, the Golden State Warriors and Oakland Raiders, pizza, Law and Order SVU, The Lion King on Broadway and volunteering at the SPCA, but for the purpose of this site I'll stick to talking about baking. I've spent my life baking for friends and family, and this past year I had the privilege of baking for a local events company. I soon figured out that baking for scale was a bit different than baking one batch of muffins (apparently shredding 10 cups of carrots for 72 carrot cake cupcakes takes hours?!) and I was hooked. 

I'm currently living in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and I'm baking out of the kitchen at my Airbnb. I'm missing my beloved KitchenAid mixer and my giant bags of chocolate chips, but it's been a fun challenge learning how to bake with less equipment and different ingredients. Please send all no-mixer recipes my way! :)
