Meet Heather

Hi there, I’m Heather and welcome to my blog Sweet Precision.

I’m currently plunging into my thirties and I love to bake cookies, dance in my pajamas, and curl up and read a good book. When I was younger I loved to cook, and I had a dream of one day opening my own peanut butter and jelly restaurant. These days, I live in Michigan with my wonderful husband Matthew and work as an analyst as I wait for the perfect PB&J business plan to materialize.

JUMO FINAL

I bake for so many reasons. The creativity and inspiration that I pour into my recipes gives me a reprieve from my daily work life. Memories of cooking sweet potato pie in the kitchen with my dad and learning to cook peanut brittle with my great aunt have provided bonds that span generations. Even remembering the day my husband confessed to entering the pumpkin cheesecake I made for his birthday into his work baking competition and taking credit after it won, still make me smile as I whisk away in the kitchen.

Baking is something I consider to be somewhat of a science, which is what I used as inspiration for this blog. I’m good with precise things. I like numbers, I’m kinda nerdy, and I think dedicating 4 hours to making the perfect cupcake is time well spent. Did I mention that my willpower vanishes into thin air when anything with chocolate is set in front of me?

I invite you into my kitchen to share in my baking mishaps and masterpieces. I hope that along the way you will be inspired to venture into your own kitchen, throw on your apron, and try a few of the recipes on my blog!

  1. I just found this vintage cooking picture of you. Could it be our famous Strawberry Birthday/Valentine’s Day Cake? Looks like you will have fun sharing on your new blog.

    • I do indeed believe that is the very cake!! I will have to make it for my birthday this year and then do a post about it. I think I will have to get the recipe from you… I bet it would make tasty cupcakes as well come to think of it!

  2. Heather – I got the link to your site from Dee. Looks like it will be a great one…especially to us ‘food aficionados!! When I got to the words “Peanut brittle”, the hunger pains started…I love it but have always assumed it was tough to make. Anyway, good luck with your site. Clay Hesser

    • Thanks Stefano! I’m just getting started with my blog. I do take my own pictures but its totally a learning experience for me since I have absolutely no background in photography! Food is definitely a tricky medium to work with!
