Many people can bake. Some people even bake well. Others are true bakers. My friend Stephanie from Makes and Bakes by Stephanie is not only a baker, but a baking wizard. Whether you are looking for homemade indulgent treats, fresh bread for your family, or keto-friendly goodies, Stephanie delivers – and she’s sponsoring a $30 Credit Makes and Bakes by Stephanie Giveaway just for The Inquisitive Mom readers!
I love supporting small businesses, especially ones run by witty, kind, and talented women like Stephanie. We met online through blogging and, while we haven’t had the chance to meet in person (yet), I consider her an awesome friend. Stephanie describes herself as someone who “love[s] to bake from scratch, knit, embroider, garden & homestead. I’m a proud feminist & granola momma of three.” She has years of experience baking for her own family and friends and now sends treats across the continental US. I’m excited that she recently celebrated an Etsy shop milestone in sales and has consistent 5 star reviews!
In addition to creating traditional baked goods, Stephanie also discovered a talent for making delicious gluten-free, low-carb, and keto-friendly treats. These include cookies, crackers, bagels, muffins, scones, and bagels. As someone who is following the keto lifestyle, I rarely make sweets because the ingredients are costly and, even though I consider myself a fairly good baker, my sweets often disappoint. This is where Makes and Bakes by Stephanie comes in – her keto chocolate chip cookies could pass for full-carb and sugar. They are light and airy, with a perfectly balanced sweetness. My biggest challenge was not eating them all in one sitting!
I thought the chocolate chip cookies were my favorite, but then I tried Stephanie’s Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. Oh, my goodness. These are fudgy heaven and my kids would eat them any day without missing sugar or carbs – as would I. Now I’m not certain which is my favorite. Then, there’s tasty Peanut Butter Cookies that are just the right balance of sweet and salty. For those without a sweet tooth, there’s plenty of savory options such as crackers and bagels.
If traditional baked goods are your jam, Stephanie makes a variety of yummy favorites and specialty goodies, including Kitchen Sink Cookies, fudge, banana bread, granola bars, and coffee cake. You have so many delicious choices if you’re the lucky winner of the $30 Credit Makes and Bakes by Stephanie Giveaway!
