There's a lot to like about Cailin Szczesiul - office worker by day and a cook/baker/photographer/writer of the blog of the blog A White Picket Fence by night. She and her husband are avid travelers, much to the disappointment of their miniature dachshund, Minnie. Her favorite place in the world is Paris, France, but Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, will always hold a special place in her heart. Her idol is Julia Child. When I first found Cailin on Twitter, her location reads "Why can't it be Paris?" - pretty much what I say to myself every day!
True to her bio, Cailin certainly loves her baking - check out this delicious chocolate banana cake:
or these blueberry-orange muffins...
or what about these strawberry jam filled cupcakes?
and OMG - look at these decadent whoopie pies for Valentine's Day!
But Cailin doesn't just bake delectable sweet things - she can turn her hand very successfully to savoury dishes too - like this fresh tomato and Camembert tart....
But apart from all the tasty goodnessshe posts on her blog, Cailin also writes about travel quite often (check out 5 ways to travel on a budget, 5 ways to make the most out of your hotel reservation, planning where to go and what to do when you get there and navigating airports) and is a featured author on Travel Belles.
