Thank you for visiting In the Flours! I’m so glad that you have found your way to my little corner of the internet. My name is Deb and I am a food lover who lives in the ample sunshine of Colorado. I paid my rent for many years as a professional baker and now I love baking at home for friends and family. I am food obsessed and if I am not currently eating something I am wondering about what to eat next! To me, food is the biggest part of what makes life joyful. I love being creative in the kitchen and I am happiest in my kitchen with butter, flour, mixer and bowls.
I started this blog because I wanted to fine tune my baking skills. Having you as an audience means that I have learned to work more carefully in the kitchen. I want the recipes to be perfect before I put them up on the blog. Some of my recipes are original, some come from the cookbooks that I am constantly reading, and some come from other blogs. I enjoy finding simple recipes that give large payloads of flavor. I cook only from scratch.
Although I constantly struggling with my sugar demons (usually losing the battle!), I do my best to eat food that is local, fresh and healthy. I love farmers markets and vegetables of all kinds (EXCEPT eggplant!) and I eat vegetarian meals most of the time. I also believe dark chocolate is a health food!
Here you will find some of my favorite things to make and eat. I hope you find something that you will like!
