As the name suggests, Broma is a (mostly) baking blog that I started in 2010. At that time I was a homesick college student who missed my mom’s desserts, so I decided to chronicle all of Mom’s recipes online in the form of a blog.
For the next 4 years, Broma Bakery served as a creative outlet, combining my love of photography and insatiable sweet tooth. I loved taking study breaks to make a batch of Katharine Canfield Cookies, or to whip up my mom’s Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake for my housemates (who, at the time, were six 6’5″ collegiate male rowers, but that’s a story for another time).
Once college ended, I worked as a catering director for a group of restaurants in town. They quickly noticed my love of photographing food, and asked me to take on social media for all three restaurants. As I look back on this time, things were all falling into place: I knew how to bake and cook, how to photograph, and how to market it all on the internet.
It has a mixture of elevated bake goods like Red Wine Brownies, comforting classics like Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, and some healthier recipes like No Bake Blueberry Almond Breakfast Bars.
In essence, the food you find on Broma Bakery is the food I eat: elevated, nostalgic desserts for everyday occasions.
