Hello all, and welcome to my blog!  My name is Erin and I'm a newly minted college grad, living in my tiny studio apartment working and surviving on an entry level salary.

I wanted to make this blog to share my recipes and ideas on how anyone can cook and bake on little money, in a tight space!  While I long for the days when I can buy a KitchenAid stand mixer, and state-of-the-art cooking utensils, we all have to start somewhere, and that's why I'm here!

A little about me...first and foremost, I love to bake!  Literally, obsessed with it.  But once I moved out on my own I've learned to love cooking as well.  I'm a vegetarian, so yes my recipes will not contain meat, but that does not mean they are boring!

Some of my favorites...
Mashed potatoes!  There's nothing like a kick-ass recipe for good mashed potatoes, so I will be sure to share my favorites with you.

Chocolate chip cookies!  Is there any baked good that brings back more smiles and memories than a chocolate chip cookie?  I think not.

Football, I'm a big time Wisconsin Badgers Football fan, On Wisconsin!

Pinterest.  I admit, I am a Pinterest addict, but really who isn't (follow my new Bee's Kitchen Pinterest page)

So, this is just a short list of my favorites, but expect me to share more with you!  I promise I will never blog about a mediocre recipe, I'm a perfectionist and only share the best with my fans.   I always seek THE BEST for every sort of recipe, whether that means trialing 10 different chocolate chip cookie recipes until I find the one.  I'm excited to start this blog, and I hope you will follow along!  Questions, comments, recipe ideas? Feel free to e-mail me!


  1. So I think we're the same person? I'm a college grad, living in a studio, and recently purchased a Kitchen Aid (and longed for one for YEARS). Love the blog! :)

    1. Thanks for the comment!! How does your KitchenAid fit in your studio?!
