Crazy for Crust

Hi there! I’m Dorothy, the crazy gal behind the blog. If you didn’t already know, I’m crazy for crust…and cookies…and brownies…and pretty much anything with sugar. And I like to talk {a lot}. But you probably already knew that.

Besides blogging full-time, I’m a wife and a mom. We live in the suburbs of Sacramento, California, but my heart belongs in San Francisco, where I grew up.

The journey of blogging has been an amazing one for me. I started on a whim without a clue what I was doing. The only blogs I ever read were Bakerella and The Pioneer Woman and (for some reason) one day I thought to myself, “I can do that too!”

Crazy for Crust started in 2010 to showcase my love of pie and crust. (It really is the best part!) A short time in, I realized that I really liked creating desserts – all of them. I love a freshly baked cookie, a fudgy rich brownie. I love homemade ice cream and perfectly decorated cupcakes…and I love pie. So this blog evolved into what it is today: my dessert creations, sometimes crazy, often with a crust, and always served with a slice of my life.

My Cookbook:

In the Fall of 2014 my biggest dream will become a reality: my first cookbook, Dessert Mash-Ups: Tasty Two in One Treats will be out in September or October. It’s still in the planning process but expect more details coming soon!
