Hi, I’m Joanna Meyer – writer of this blog (aka Baked by Joanna), food creative/enthusiast and freelance food stylist. After moving from Texas, my husband Ben, two pups named Halo and Buster and I now live in Arizona. While the summers can be harsh, the rest of the year remains beautiful and perfect for enjoying homemade meals, growing food and outdoor activities. I am a wonderful daydreamer, love gardening, snapping photos of delicious eats and sharing my love of everything edible.
I began my career in marketing, which is where I grew my passion for writing and editing. But as time moved on I quickly knew that I would not be complete unless I pursued my dream job; because of this, I am now a student at Arizona State University and studying Food Industry Management. Fortunately, with hard work and drive came opportunities to work on amazing projects that have been seen on HGTV.com, The TomKat Studio and in Baby Talk Magazine. My recipes have also been featured in the Smart & Final newsletter and on Good Food Allies.
With endless yummy recipes, entertaining ideas and food facts, I know I will achieve something great and am excited for you to come with me on my food journey. Thank you for all your support and visiting my blog!
Here’s to a sweet day,
