Rachel Conners started her blog in 2010 because baking was a creative outlet and act of love that she wanted to share with the world. Soon after moving away from home to attend the University of Puget Sound, she began to experiment with more healthful ways of baking, like gluten-free, paleo, and vegan, in large part due to her sister's health issues. After graduating from college, Rachel decided to dive headfirst into her blog, and over the past several years, Rachel has turned Bakerita from a hobby into a career. Bakerita allows Rachel to share her love of good food, health, and wellness as each of her recipes is created with no refined sugars, no dairy, and no gluten. Rachel lives with her dog in San Diego, California.
