Hi everyone! My name is Kari. Welcome to Kari Bakes! I am a home baker who loves a good glazed donut. Currently, I live in Rochester NY, which is an amazing city with a bunch of local bakeries that I frequent often. For the past few years, I found baking as a way to relax after a long day or week or month. I decided to create this blog to talk about favorite recipes of mine, either original or inspired by others. I welcome all comments and questions, and hope to be able to connect with any readers to talk about baking and life! I am not a professional baker, so things won't be perfect, which is fine by me. Everyone has to start somewhere :) Thanks for stopping by and happy baking friends!
