Hi there! I’m Kelly Ann and this is Archimedes Bakes! I’m a single mom of one awesome teenage son and two super cute but very opinionated kitties. I love baking and anything sweet! I love being in the kitchen and, of course, I love eating! When I’m not in the kitchen whipping up something tasty, you can usually find me at the park, hiking the nature trails and taking countless pictures of trees and birds. When the nights are cool and the skies are clear, I’m outside with my telescope and my star chart, taking in the wonder that is the night sky. My bookshelves are filled with Harry Potter, poetry and cookbooks. I have oodles and oodles of cookbooks and I usually end my day in bed with a cup of tea and a stack of cook books next to me. Oh, and two kitties wrapped around my feet.
“Mom, your cooking makes everything better!”
My son said that to me. I don’t remember what I had cooked that prompted his adoration, but I’ll never forget his words to me! It made my heart so happy! I just love being a mom! It has been one of the hardest but most rewarding things I have ever done. And doing it alone for 19 years has made it a bit of a challenge here and there, but hey, that’s life, right? We’re a team, my son and I. And we’re doing ok!
This is Angel. She’s eleven and she always wants her belly scratched!
This is Peanut. She is almost five and she loves to watch me cook!
I started this blog because I love to share recipes with my friends and family. Some recipes are found in the countless stacks of cookbooks I have, some are found on Pinterest (my secret obsession!), some are handed down from family members and some are created by me and taste-tested and approved by my son! Along the way, I hope to bring you delicious and easy recipes for breakfast, lunch, snack time, dinner and, of course, my favorite and most importantly, dessert! Any day isn’t complete without dessert! Well, that about sums me up………see you in the kitchen!
