Welcome to

If you love finding the adventure in every day life or you are trying to become that person, you’re in the right place! Or maybe you heard a Quick Family Recipe on the radio and that’s why you’re visiting… whatever the reason, I’m so glad you’re here.

In case we haven’t met – hi, I’m Carol. I’m a Florida girl, born and raised in Kissimmee / St. Cloud. I moved to Tallahassee for college – Go Noles! Then I moved back to Central Florida to work behind the scenes in radio. This blogging community has been a dream of mine for a while. Before I met my husband Andrew, my maiden name was Baker, hence Carolbake. I actually love to cook more than bake. I know, makes no sense with a name like Carolbake, but I love throwing things in a pot together to create new recipes… baking is more of an exact science, something that wasn’t always my favorite subject in school. My husband and I have been married since 2010 and we LOVE to travel… and while we can’t do that as much at the moment, there’s still plenty of life to enjoy. Now a days, if you don’t find me creating something yummy in the kitchen, you’ll find me crafting with my Cricut, hanging out and enjoying the theme park life in my Central Florida backyard or exploring Old Florida.

Everything you find here is from my own personal experiences, most of the time I pay for myself. I’ll let you know if it’s ever a freebie. Know that I’ll always stay positive and will only make space here for things that are worth your while… why waste time on anything else, right? My momma always says, “don’t waste a moment- life is all about making memories”… My hope is that you’ll take a look around, check out a new recipe to try or maybe find a new place to explore. So I invite you to join the community and start finding the adventure in the everyday moments and make those memories! I can’t wait to get to know you.
