aboutmehhi there! the name’s colleen. i’m a nineteen twenty 21 year old pharmacy student born and raised (close to) vancouver, canada. my interest in food & baking sparked when i was young… while other kids were watching arthur or whatever, i was watching sugar. so far, my interest has been pretty low-key– no ambitious cook book dreams or apprenticeships with chefs. this blog allows me to live my food dream, and is a much needed creative outlet in my very science focused student life. i can’t promise that i’ll be the greatest of writers or the most brilliant of bakers… but i’m just excited to be able to share everything with you guys.
