Hi there! My name is Faith, and I am the 20-something baker, writer, and photographer behind this blog.
I grew up with a love for baking and writing; at 3 months old my mother had me in the kitchen watching her make cookies, and “helping” as soon as I was old enough to see over the counter when standing on a stool. I started blogging when I was 14 years old- I guess a food blog was destiny.
I grew up in a small town in south-central PA, but two years ago I moved to Baltimore, where Pixie Dust Kitchen is centered from. 9 months out of the year, I attend College in the Philadelphia area.
I’m studying psychology at a small univerisity in suburban Philadelphia with plans to go into Healthcare Administration and mental health advocacy. I took the spring 2013 semester off to work at Walt Disney World as part of the Disney College Program. While it ended on an unexpectedly sour note, it was one of the best experiences of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Quite naturally, I love Disney. A lot. I also love music, shopping, reading, baking, writing,- essentially, being creative!
Other things I love: Jesus, Coffee, sprinkles (#clichefoodblogger), peanut butter, running, exploring cities, New York City, traveling, Doctor Who.
(Yes, that is a Belle crown. Yes, I was 19 years old then. Don’t judge.)
Why the name Pixie Dust Kitchen? When I started this blog in March of 2013, I was a Disney Cast Member. Disney was (and still is) a huge part of my life. I want the magic of Disney to show through my posts. Anyone can cook, you just need a little faith, trust, and something I forgot… dust! Pixie dust! (But in this kitchen, let’s call that sprinkles.)
I try to keep to a posting schedule of 2-3 recipes per week, with a round up or life post every other week or so. Unfortunately, while I’m at school that doesn’t always happen. I’m a full time student and I work part time at a doctor’s office. While I treat this blog as a second full time job, sometimes recipe development and photography get’s pushed aside for tests and meetings. Fortunately, I do have plenty of willing taste testers living in a dorm who love trying my recipes!
My goal in life is to make people happy. That’s why I’m a psychology major- I want to help other people find happiness from their problems, whatever they may be. Baking is what makes me happy, and I want to share what makes me happy with the world. I hope you find it just as happy as I do!
