Welcome to Chomp!: a blog about cakes, bakes, and mistakes. As an amateur baker, I love experimenting in the kitchen. The results are typically delicious, but there are plenty of “learning opportunities” along the way. This blog will be an honest look at the ups and downs behind all the pretty pictures. And of course, lots of recipes!
I’m Tricia, by the way. A native Texan, I landed in Chicago for law school and stayed for love (of both my husband and the city). My husband, Andrew, and I share our home with Lucy Dog, the laziest lab that ever was. While all labs love food, Lucy Dog has developed a taste for butter in particular. She has eaten two sticks of butter–paper included–in the time it took me to go get my phone from the other room. She has also eaten an entire chiffon cake left on the counter overnight. So this blog is named after my butter-loving dog’s favorite thing to do: chomp!
