Welcome to Forty Cakes!
My name is Karla and after bouncing around a little bit (Hawaii, Seattle, Hawaii) I am currently living in Southwest Florida with my husband, The Bean, Rosie and an assortment of pets. By day, I am a working professional (in the environmental field), adjunct faculty for a local college, and a full-time, hands-on mom. By night (or in the wee hours of the morning), I am the head writer, recipe tester and travel authority of this here little blog. As a family, we love to travel and have adventures and we love to eat. We also love to be outside, be active, and explore the world. Forty Cakes is about all of those things–food, travel, family, fun, sustainable living and health. Visit my FAQs if you want to learn more.
I have split my site into a few different sections so the posts of each topic are easy to find.
Forty Cakes Food—Here you will find recipes of all kinds (including cakes), restaurant reviews, tips and other foodie related things. Occasionally, I will review products but not often and only if I truly love them.
Forty Cakes Travel- We travel quite a bit and it is one of the highlights of my life. Check here for hotel and restaurant reviews, travel tips, and stories of our adventures.
Forty Cakes Sustainable Living- We are all trying to live a bit better for our Earth. Visit here for tips, ideas and news related to the environment and our impact on it. Hiking, camping and other outside activities will be included here.
Forty Cakes Health- Health is important to me. Check out this part of the site for posts about getting and staying healthy with guest posts from some of my expert friends.
Forty Cakes Family- If you want to read about the weird and zany exploits of me and my family, this is where you should look.
Forty Cakes Fun- Random things can be found here—things like Giveaways, art that I love, shoes that I want. Forty Cakes Fun should probably be called Forty Cakes Random.
I am so glad that you stopped by and hope that you will continue to read and be a part of my growing blog community!
