WELCOME TO Jamie

What you can expect here at Bake with Jamie:

Hi, I’m Jamie, the recipe developer and comfort food loving Minnesotan behind this website! If you’re looking for Midwestern recipes and meals from scratch, I’m your gal. Here you’ll find cozy meals, delicious baked goods, and some healthy dishes too (I know us Midwestern folk have a rap for marshmallow salads, but sometimes we do eat greens!). I love to make the classics but enjoy putting my own spin on them.

I believe that the kitchen should be a place of joy. Where memories are made, delicious food is enjoyed, and traditions are shared with family and friends. I prefer to follow the seasons in my cooking. In the autumn and winter months, I love to cook hearty meals, including soups, homemade bread, hotdishes, and comfort foods in general!

In spring and summer, I enjoy cooking lighter meals using fresh vegetables and fruity and light desserts.

Some of my favorite cold weather meals are fancy grilled cheese or a piping hot bowl of chili with buttermilk cornbread.

A few of my favorite autumn/winter desserts are tahini pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, these gooey caramel chocolate chip bars, and spice bundt cake with caramel cream cheese frosting.

If you’re looking for a fancy dessert to make for special occasions, you’ve got to make my turtle cheesecake with Biscoff cookie crust!

I am a Midwest mom of three kiddos and married to my very own lumberjack.

Baking has always been a form of therapy for me. I find great joy in making my loved ones home-cooked meals and homemade desserts! I’ve been baking in kitchen since I can remember and I’ve found it is a true joy of mine!

I still use the rolling pin that my great-grandmother used when she baked. She lived through three centuries and even owned her own café at the age of 17 (!!!). I have fond memories of her feeding us her homemade goodies–one of my favorites being her fresh doughnuts. Heavenly.

When I’m not baking, I love to run! I’m almost always training for a race (currently training for Grandma’s Marathon). I also homeschool my kiddos. We are often out exploring nature, attending extra-curriculars, or pursuing various passion projects of theirs.
