It’s Birch Tree Baking’s 3rd anniversary! I can’t believe that I started this blog 3 years ago when I was bored to tears on a snow day. A lot has happened in those 3 years…I graduated high school, I began college, I started a baking club, I travelled to Eastern Europe, I got deep into my Accounting classes at school, I had an internship in tax accounting, I started to enjoy running, and of course… I baked!

I don’t want to pass along a mediocre recipe, and I’ve posted most of the recipes that I repeatedly make.
