Julie, a dedicated scientist, introduces herself as the face behind Bunsen Burner Bakery. When she's not immersed in her laboratory work, she indulges in her passion for baking and shares her culinary experiments through her blog. Julie's focus is primarily on crafting indulgent desserts and quick weeknight dinners, providing her readers with a delightful array of recipes to try. Beyond her scientific pursuits and blogging endeavors, she finds joy in various activities such as traveling, fantasy football, SCUBA diving, nurturing houseplants, embracing urban living, appreciating the Oxford comma, adorning herself with anything sparkly, rescuing stray animals, practicing baby wearing, savoring bourbon, and partaking in craft beer festivals.
Back to the year 2011, Julie embarked on her blogging journey while pursuing her Ph.D. in a pediatric oncology research laboratory. The catalyst for her blog's inception was her responsibility to bake birthday cakes for her fellow lab mates. After months of sharing cake recipes via email within the lab, someone suggested that Julie should start a food blog. Inspired by this idea, she promptly established Bunsen Burner Bakery, creating a virtual space to showcase her culinary creations.
Although Julie lacks formal culinary training, her love for cooking and baking blossomed during her junior year of college. It emerged as an alternative to her then-boyfriend, now-husband's penchant for ordering pizza every night. Through countless hours spent in the kitchen, she honed her skills and acquired a wealth of experience. As a result, she is eager to share the valuable lessons she has learned along the way with her readers.
While baking holds a special place in Julie's heart, she recognizes the importance of a balanced diet. Consequently, her blog features not only an abundance of delectable dessert recipes but also a variety of wholesome options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. Most notably, her recipes are designed to be quick and easy, making them ideal for hectic weeknight meals. Julie expresses her gratitude to her readers for visiting her blog and hopes that they discover something truly delicious to enjoy.
