About Me

Hi I’m Hilary, the twenty something girl behind Bakes By Ranchcookie. I was born and raised in a small town just outside of Columbus, Ohio. In 2015 I moved to Georgia and now reside in the beautiful Savannah, Georgia with my soon to be husband and two golden retrievers, Benny and Riley.

In 2012, during my Sophomore year of college, a combination of stress and medication caused some very severe digestive problems. These digestive problems led to a fear of certain foods, that spiraled into a not so healthy and unweight me. These last 5 years I finally am started to find my balance with living a healthy lifestyle.

My goal for Bakes By Ranchcookie is to help others see you can live a balanced lifestyle and be healthy. You will notice my recipes involve wholesome ingredients that nourish the body but also are still the foods you love.

Along with recipes you will learn about my struggles in adulthood, wedding planning, being a dog mom and starting my own (at home) bakery, 13 Donuts Bakery.

Don’t want to miss a recipe? I would love it if you would subscribe or watch out for new posts on Instagram. You can find a sample of my work in my no bake dessert ebook.

A side passion I came across through blogging is food photography. I am passionate about food styling and natural lighting food/drink photography. You can find my portfolio here and contact info here.

If you are interested in contacting me, whether that be for a collaboration with a brand or product or working with other bloggers, I really love to share ideas and come up with solutions.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you come back again!
