Welcome to Bobbie’s Baking Blog, it is a pleasure to have you visit, consider yourself apart of the blog family! Here is a little background about me:
I am a wife of a wonderful man, and a mother of an amazing young lady, after 10 miscarriages, and being bed-ridden, for three month in the summer of 1992, my husband and were blessed with a beautiful little girl. I used my LONG rest to think about becoming a mother, my own was abusive, and I did not want to repeat the trend. By the time Sydney was born I had mapped out a journey into the culinary arts. I knew it would be hard to have Sydney with me, but I wanted to be her primary care giver!
I joke that Sydney has been baking and cooking from the carrier; She did literally grow up in the kitchen. She teethed on frozen asparagus, and by the age of two we implemented Sydney Cook Night. Every wednesday Sydney and I would adventure to the market; she would bring a prepped list (I wrote the ingredients, she dictated), as I pushed the cart Sydney would grab the ingredients from the list, and together check out. Since she spent the entire trip putting goodies in the cart, she would never care about the rack of candy at the check out counter! The first year of meals were interesting to say the least.
When college came knocking at the door for Sydney in her senior year of high school, I began this blog to keep a record of our time in the kitchen, so she would have a piece of us with her when she felt homesick. We also through the blog and skype could pseudo bake together; this helped the transition we both where apprehensive to experience.
Fast foreword 18 1/2 years later and she is an accomplished chef in her own right. I believe our mutual love for the culinary arts,challenging ourselves with new recipes, successes and learning through mistakes and mishaps forged a friendship filled with respect, love, and fun. She is now my business partner; we create the recipes together, she brings me back to earth when I fail, proof reads my posts and the articles I write for Ask Miss A.
Sydney and I design and bake all the recipes together, bouncing ideas off each other, sometime into the wee hours of the night.The pictures are photographed and styled by either myself or/and Sydney.

I will on occasion welcome a guest blogger; however I will moderate the post if it contains links to commercial sites and the context must pertain to family traditions, bonding, and of course how food is the common thread.
