Hi, I’m Lainey! Welcome to Simply Bakings.
This site focuses on easy baking and having fun while doing it! If you
- Don’t know how to bake
- You don’t have the time to bake, but want too
- Are interested in baking, but do not have the money to do so
- Are a Cake Box believer
And if you answered yes to any of the points above, then you are at the right place! Welcome!
You will find cookies, no-bake recipes, 5 ingredient or less recipes, and even healthy desserts too!
You will also find random blurbs about my interests, family, being frugal, basically anything about my life. But don’t worry, 90% of the time I share delicious baking recipes.
And if you found me through my YouTube baking channel where I post videos once a week, welcome to my blog my fellow YouTubers.
What kind of camera do you use to film, photograph, and what editing software do you use?
I shoot with a Canon Mark II, Canon 1.4 lens, and Canon macro 100 mm lens. To edit my videos I use Final Cut Pro x. To edit my photos, I start with Lightroom and it depends how I feel that day, I either use Canva or Picmonkey.
Where do you live?
I grew up in sunny southern California where the sun shines pretty much every day of the year! I didn’t want to leave that sun, so I relocated to Northern CA where the sun still shines, but I get to experience the four seasons.
What nationality are you?
I am a Filipino girl who grew up in the states but have the taste buds of a Filipino girl in the Philippines. I became vegetarian years ago which made it a challenge to eat Filipino foods since most of it consists of meat. But I was up to a challenge and figured out how to make tasty plant-based Filipino foods.
What is your favorite cookie?
My favorite cookie is white chocolate cranberry pecan cookies. I only discovered this cookie three years ago, when I was baking with my sister and her friend and I fell in love with these cookies. The nuts and cranberries give such a unique taste and the white chocolate balances out the sweetness.
I’ve always wanted to start a baking blog and I finally did it! Join me in my adventures in the kitchen baking, cooking, and filming for my YouTube channel. Please know that I am incredibly grateful for any time that you spend on Simply Bakings, sharing your comments, thoughts, and I hope you got to know me better and I hope to get to know you! Please, leave a comment and tell me about yourself.
