HEY! I’M GREGORY.
I’m the dedicated home-baker, photographer, and writer behind Craving The Yum. I reside in NYC’s Washington Heights.
I want to show you, step-by-step, how to bake cookies, cakes, pies and bars, and everything sweet in between.
My love for baking was instilled into me by my mom. A spitfire of a woman who could create beautiful things basically out of nothing. One day she would be drawing our portraits, and other days she would be painting the floor black with orange swirls. (This was the 1970’s when the color burnt orange was all the craze). One time I came home from school and discovered my mom had painted the Jabber Jaws cartoon character on our bathroom wall. SO COOL!!
As a kid, we didn’t have much, and even though we didn’t have much money, my mom still made sure that we had dessert after every dinner. From scratch! Whether it was a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, an apple cake with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin pie or some type of cookie, she would have it at the ready.
I try to sprinkle in a little of my mom’s heart and her penchant for encouraging creativity. I hope you enjoy Craving The Yum.
