About AMor&Baking

The idea for Amor & Baking first came to me a few years ago when I was living in Houston. I had fallen in love with baking, had a bunch of time on my hands and wanted validation. I recognized I was by no means skilled at the art. So I landed on amor because it was for the love of something (baking) I had no particular skill at. The original idea did not pan out, because it turns out I do not bake as much as I thought. And for the sake of my own mental well being I need to dabble in lots of different stuff. So I decided to turn this into an exploration of all the little things in life that make me love being alive (which, for the record, includes baking). For me all of those little things in life fall under three broad categories: Things you MAKE, things you LEARN, and things you EXPERIENCE. The blog is organized by those three categories. If I happen to stumble upon something else one day— I’ll add it. For now though I hope you enjoy following along on my adventures big and small!

With love,

Andy, the amateur everything-er

amateur (adj.) done in an inept or unskilled way, from the Latin amare ‘to love’

Andy wrapped in one of her crochet creations.   Andy grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, California exploring all the great stuff Southern California has to offer. She earned her BA in International Relations and Global Politics from the American University of Rome in Italy. She went on to earn her MA at 21 from Queen’s University of Belfast in Northern Ireland. She speaks English, Spanish, and Italian. Both of her parents migrated to California, one from Mexico and the other from Kentucky. Her mixed-heritage is incredibly important to her and her worldview. She calls herself a Mexican slash, not dash, American. She loves her  hermanito  more than anything—most days.
