About Me

Hi!  I'm Kimiko, the creator of The Beachside Baker.  I recently graduated from a nursing program and passed my state boards (the dreaded NCLEX-RN exam!) so I am now officially a Registered Nurse!  In the meantime, I try to find time to pursue my other love of food by cooking and baking whenever I have the chance.

I currently reside in Long Beach, California with my amazing husband, Tony, my wonderful dog, Molly, and a little one on the way!  I moved here 6 years ago and couldn't be happier.  Nothing beats the sunny weather of Southern California!  Tony is my "official taste-tester," so nothing goes on the blog without his approval!

About the Blog

I started this blog in September 2011 as a way to keep track of the recipes I make, and also to make them available for others to enjoy.  When I first decided to start this blog, I struggled to think of a creative name, but finally decided on The Beachside Baker.  Although this is not strictly a baking blog, I think it suits it well.  Since I live by the ocean and love to bake, I find it appropriate and catchy!

I collect many of my recipes and inspiration through a variety of sources:  recipe books, food magazines (Bon Appetit and Cooking Light are currently my favorites), food blogs, and Pinterest, just to name a few.  I hope that as this blog continues to grow, I can continue to update and improve the blog.  I look forward to posting more recipes and receiving more feedback from you!  Feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.

**You can also follow along for more frequent updates, and peeks into my food life, on Instagram!  My username is @thebeachsidebaker.  Hope to see you there!**
