Hi, I’m Lainey! Welcome to Simply Bakings.
This site focuses on easy baking and having fun while doing it. You will find cookies, no bake recipes, 5 ingredient or less recipes, and even healthy desserts too!
I created this blog to store all my recipes and keep me organized. You will also find random blurbs about my interests, family, being frugal, basically anything about my life. Why? Because I find it’s so much easier for me to write than talk.
You may have found me through my YouTube baking channel where I post videos once a week, so welcome to my blog my fellow YouTubers.
What kind of camera do you use to film and photograph and what editing software do you use?
I shoot with a Canon T4i, the lens I use to film is the Canon 50mm and Canon 35mm and to photograph I use the Canon macro 100 mm lens. To edit my videos, I use Final Cut Pro X and to edit pictures I use Pixelmator.
Where do you live?
I live in sunny southern California where the sun shines pretty much everyday of the year. The food is amazing in the Los Angeles area, so in between breaks from school I spend my weeks eating the AWESOME food.
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! Leave a comment and tell me about yourself.
