I’m Erin – a self-taught home baker and small batch baking enthusiast. Long ago I decided baking 48 cookies for just two people was way too much! And with that, Butter & Bliss was born.

Butter & Bliss is a baking blog and a collection of my small batch recipes for desserts, baked goods, and sweet treats.
