About Me

I hate writing about myself (it always sounds so self-conscious and painfully awkward), but I also hate when I go to a blog or website and there’s no “About Me” page.  So here’s a bunch of random information about me…

I’m Rachel, I love baking, and I love baking for other people.  Being able to make something that makes other people happy makes me happy.  Same goes for cooking. Hence: this blog.

I also like being crafty, but the crafting bug doesn’t strike me as much as the baking bug. So I mostly look at pretty projects on blogs and Pinterest, and then feel bad about not doing any of them.

I live in Raleigh, NC, but am from a small town in south central Pennsylvania.

I love reading, books, and buying books.  I love libraries in theory, but I rarely go to them because I love owning books.  I love bookstores in reality.

I also love office supply stores, grocery stores, and drugstores, and have recently rediscovered my love of fabric stores.

I have a nice sewing machine that I don’t use nearly enough.

I hate bugs, critters, roller coasters, and most boats.  I also don’t like swings.  Can’t explain it, but they are all terrifying/awful to me.

I use a Canon Rebel XS to take my photos, with either the kit lens or a 50mm f/1.8 macro. Clearly, I am not a professional, but it’s fun learning about my camera and figuring out what works/doesn’t.

Follow me on Twitter here: @rachelrooney, and on Pinterest here. You can also email me at rachelmakesrachelbakes [at] gmail [dot] com.
