Welcome to Brooklyn Homemaker. I’m Tux.
Brooklyn Homemaker is a blog about everything.
And about nothing.
It is a blog about cooking, but it is not a cooking blog.
It is a blog about baking, but it is not a baking blog.
It is a blog about home decor, interior design, an obsessive love for furniture & pretty things, entertaining & party planning, schnauzers, marriage, amateur photography, rants, raves, strong opinions, cocktails & drunkenness.
I’m originally from upstate New York, but have called Bushwick, Brooklyn home since 2007. I live here with my husband Russell and our two miniature schnauzers Doris & Betty. I manage an amazing kitchenware store in Williamsburg, but I find myself filling more and more of my spare time with cooking, baking, gardening, decorating, crafting, and teaching myself about photography and blogging.
My blogging adventure all started in the fall of 2013, after a brunch at home that ended with a show-stopping 3-layer pistachio cake with honey buttercream. When the cake was served my friends demanded that I start a blog to share my culinary capers, and, after several glasses of wine, I agreed to give it a shot. The rest, as they say, is history.
I picked up my love of cooking and baking at an early age from my mother and grandmother, and fostered my skills by taking culinary courses in high school and college. I’m constantly challenging myself and trying new things to help myself grow from enthusiastic amateur to home-spun professional.
While the main focus of Brooklyn Homemaker tends to be food and my love of cooking, baking, and eating; I have a lot of other interests and don’t want to limit myself by narrowing my focus. As I spend more and more time in my kitchen and home, I aspire to make improvements to the space I inhabit. I hope to share those projects with you along the way, just as I share the meals and treats that I stuff in my face.
Thanks for visiting Brooklyn Homemaker. I hope you come back soon and often to check in and see what I’m up to.
