Hello there, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the inter-web! I’m Maddi, a breakfast enthusiast, self-taught cake maker, mama to be, and wife to my best friend. I love rainy days, psychology, puppies of every kind, and dancing in the kitchen while I cook. I’ve spent the majority of my life in the beautiful state of Utah and have a deep love of fresh air and mountain views.
I created Sprinkles and Such as a way to share my love of creating and cooking with you, because life is just too short to eat mediocre food! I grew up spending lots of time in the kitchen with my parents, where my mom let me help with dinner and my dad taught me how to flip crepes. I am passionate about pairing flavors and creating new recipes–some turn out great while others fail miserably, but that’s just part of the adventure 🙂
Despite all of my wonderful memories in the kitchen, food and I haven’t always gotten along. I’ve dealt with eating disorders and a lot of anxiety about eating. It’s taken me many years to understand what it truly means to be “healthy,” and intuitive eating has a played a big role in that. Though it’s a work in progress, I feel like I’ve finally made peace with food and learned how to enjoy it again. I’m not mad at veggies and I’m not afraid of cake; food is food and it all has a place in my life now.
Life is messy, and it’s a constant journey. We’re never going to reach a place of perfect contentment because we will always be growing, learning, changing, and experiencing new challenges and triumphs. It’s my goal to stop worrying and focus instead on living. I hope this is a place where you can feel inspired to not only get in the kitchen and cook, but also get out into the world and live!
