Hello! My name is Adell and I blog at Baked in Arizona. I’ve always loved being in the kitchen, especially baking! And I love sharing my favorite recipes with family and friends. Making a batch of cookies is my kind of therapy. Some people say the same thing about going for a run. Sure doesn’t taste as good though. 🙂 Some of my hobbies that I enjoy (other than making food for my family) are: running, cleaning, reading, hiking and snowboarding (although being so far away from the snow, I don’t get to do that as much as I would like to).
After 10 years cruising the big bad streets of New York City, my family up and went suburban in June of 2012. The decision to leave the urb for the burb was saddest for me so Ciburbanity (city + suburb + sanity) was born as a suburban diary, record book, and sounding board. I write about life (which basically means my lack of a social life), kids (four under the age of 5), our house, and anything else (read: CRAFTS!!!) that crosses my diaper and thrifty filled brain. If it’s colorful or quirky, I want it… if it has a red clearance sticker, I want it… if it’s a little weird or unexpected, I want it. My design style is frugal repurposed eclectic (look it up- it’s probably a thing), and I may or may not have 8 chairs, 3 coffee tables, and a dresser in my garage.
