Meet Holly & Katie, The Semisweet Sisters!
We are two sisters, who are pretty much opposites. We are 10 years apart, so we were not really friends until we were older. We do have three things in common though. We both love baking, country music, and the beach. We have been swapping recipes with each other for a long time. It seemed like someone was always asking us for our recipes so we decided it would be fun to start our own baking blog. We live right down the street from each other now, which is great since one of us is always borrowing an ingredient or baking pan from the other.
On our blog we only share our favorite recipes with you. Trust me, we bake a ton each week but if a recipe turns out just “okay” then you won’t find it anywhere on our blog. We would have tons & tons of recipes posted if we did but we only share recipes that we think are great!
I’m Holly, the older, wilder, big mouth sister.
I have been happily married for 10 years now. We have one daughter Kaylee who is turning 8 this spring, and Bella our crazy bulldog.
Earlier this year I pulled my daughter out of public school and started homeschooling her. We are both very happy with it so far and plan to keep doing it. I love that she has time to bake with me now. Before is was school, homework, and bed for her.
Things I love, besides baking and my family:
~Beer (my husband is a home brewer, so I am kind of a beer snob)
~Country Music and Cowboy Boots
~Traveling as often as possible and usually to somewhere warmer than Indiana.
If we don’t fly then the dog goes with us. Yes she is sitting in my daughters booster seat so she can see out the window better.
I am the younger, quieter, milder sister. I have an obsession with sugar cookies, vanilla, & sprinkles! I love to bake thanks to my Mom who always kept fresh baked goods around the house (especially bread & cinnamon rolls). Baking cookies is absolutely one of my favorite things to make, well that & freshly baked cinnamon rolls.
Things I love besides spending time baking in the kitchen:
I love photography, whether it’s capturing a beautiful sunset or snapping a picture of a freshly baked sugar cookie (my photos are a work in progress…).
I love animals I have one dog & one cat (Fuzz Ball——->).
I love the beach, tropical weather, watching the sunset, walking in the sand barefoot, & being able to wear flip flops!
