Welcome to my little spec on the web! My name is Liz (or Lizzy), and I created Little Bitty Bakes to share my love for baking with anyone and everyone! As my blog continues to grow, I hope to share more than just recipes. ‘Til then, here’s a little bit about me:
Why ‘Little Bitty Bakes?’ Though I don’t remember, apparently my nickname as a toddler was Little Bitty. And I think Little Bitty Bakes would be a great name for a bakery with little bitty cupcakes and such. Anyway, I think it’s great we can all share our interests with one another by blogging, and I’m hoping this little blog will evolve into something quite fun and enjoyable for many!
How little is Little Bitty? Not very – I turned 25 on May 29th this year. Yep, I share my birthday with Carmelo Anthony. Fellow Syracuse fans know how neat that little fact is. My Real Age is 16.8, which obviously has a lot to do with all the cookies I eat working out I do. I feel a lot younger than I once thought 25 would feel like, and am glad I have 4 years ’til my champagne birthday.
Where does Little Bitty live? I grew up in Central NY in Oswego (on the shore of Lake Ontario). Best known for our lake effect snow. Never visit Oswego in January or February. Or, visit then and be glad you don’t live there! I’ve since spent time all over NY state and even in everyone’s favorite state, NJ. I currently live outside of Rochester, NY. I would love to live in another region of the country at some point, though! Which brings us to…
If Little Bitty could live anywhere… Ideally, it’d be a combination of NYC and upstate NY with the climate of southern California. I enjoy both fast and super slow paced life, and nice weather = more workouts and swimming!
Does Little Bitty bake all day long? I wish I could say yes. I work in market research. Think surveys, focus groups, etc. I’ve been pretty lucky to have some good jobs post-college in some terrible economic conditions. Of course, in an ideal world, I’d run a successful bakery. And in a really ideal world, I’d get to blog all day long about my recipes and not have to live in a cardboard box because of it. 😉 Oh, you know Samantha Brown from the Travel Channel? I would love her job.
This blog is all about baking. How do you stay healthy? It’s tough sometimes! Luckily, way too many years of competitive swimming have made me a disciplined athlete. I’m currently training for my first marathon (NYC). Check out my Road to Central Park section of my blog for more on that. I try to eat healthy to make up for all of the desserts I consume. That being said, I do still occasionally eat ice cream for dinner. What? Ice cream has protein, you know.
