Half Baked & Kneady

A Brutally Honest Baking Blog

Half Baked

Hello everyone! My name is Becca Ruark and I’m a 24 year old college grad with nothing better to do in my free time than to make messes in the kitchen (I’m a pro).

So hangout, read my blog, and check out my recipes! Also, learn from my mistakes, and take a look at the “What Went Wrong” section of my website.

Questions, comments, or suggestions? Send me an email.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy!
