Baker. Author. Donut Enthusiast.
Hi there! I’m Lauren. I’m a self-taught baker whose in love with the idea of creating recipes that inspire others to want to be in the kitchen.
My favorite part of inventing new recipes is the smile that it puts on people’s faces as they enjoy the farm-fresh flavors. I have been inspired by local farmers markets across the USA, ranging from Seattle, WA to Lynchburg, VA. I was blessed with parents who believed in knowledge through experience. From a young age, I have experienced the rural, native tribes of Panama to the traditional, farmhouse cooking in Italy. I try my best to exhibit my fondness for these awe-inspiring cultures throughout my recipes, along with a few traditional Southern dishes with unique twists.
Growing up, I loved watching my grandmother, of Armenian descent, cook in the kitchen. Then, Cupcake Wars released their first episode… and my life changed. I was obsessed with trying to create unique cupcake recipes that no one would even think of… some worked out and of course, some recipes did not. But hey, that’s part of the process of being a self-taught baker! As I grew older, I became very conscience of health. I found joy in creating recipes that incorporated seasonal fruits and veggies from my local farmers market.
My parents, full of adventure and bravery, started their own business, Batistini Farms, where they sell the best, most authentic Italian 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegars… so I never actually really learned how to cook with butter! Therefore, all recipes on A Bright Moment Blog use extra virgin olive oil as a healthier substitute for butter.
I am so thrilled you’ve come across my path! I truly hope you enjoy this food & lifestyle blog.
