My name is Nicki. Nicki Lee to be precise.
You have no idea how glad I am to have you here, reading my very first ever blog post. Starting a blog for me has been a long time in the making, and I finally worked up the courage to just DO IT. After continuous inspirational quote searches, crazy blog tip pinning, and speaking to myself in third person motivation format (“You’ve got this, Nicki. Don’t give up!!”), I am finally here. I cannot WAIT to start sharing with all of you.
If you’ve taken a peek at my about page, you’ve seen that I love to bake. But not only do I love to bake, I love to eat what I bake. Especially when it’s buttery, chocolaty, and likely to go straight to my thighs. I’m a firm believer in happy living, and if you are constantly forcing yourself to resist eating the foods that bring you joy, that’s not happy living. I wholeheartedly encourage you to live a healthy lifestyle, but if the cookie speaks to you, just eat it. Or if it’s actually speaking to you, it could be a bug and you should step on it (…bad joke). Either way, I am here to let you know that you don’t have to choose to be a part of the #fitfam, and sometimes it’s okay to choose the #bananasplitfam instead. Do what makes you happy. Always, always, always be happy.
Throughout my life, baking has been a pretty cool outlet for me to express my creativity. You can expect me to offer you recipes and videos to guide you through your not-so-everyday baked goods. I like to bake yummy things that are visually appealing, are typically holiday and seasonally themed, and taste worthy of your time put into them. You can also expect a few “tipsy” treats, because as a teacher, I’ve incorporated the hooch into my everyday diet (it’s necessary).
What I’m most excited to share with you are the YouTube videos you can expect every Monday (Nicki Lee Bakes – that’s my channel!). I hope you’ll find them entertaining, informative, and I hope they make you hungry. There will always be a blog post for each video, but I can’t promise a video for each blog post (I’d have to dress nice far too often).
I promise to always do my best to make all of you happy and bring you the yummiest of content with each post. Please let me know if there is anything you’d like to see/have me make, if you totally despise something, but most of all if you actually like something! Comment, email, stalk my Facebook…anything works, really. I encourage you to be engaged, and I will most definitely be here to listen to everything you share with me.
All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you for stopping by, and I am so ecstatic to be here with all of you.
Cheers to new adventures, and always eating dessert first.
