Hi there, I’m Heather, and welcome to My Sweet Precision. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'm a passionate home chef and baker.
I'm currently plunging into my mid-thirties and I love to bake cookies, dance in my pajamas, and curl up and read a good book. When I was younger, I loved to cook, and I had a dream of one day opening my own peanut butter and jelly restaurant. These days, I live in Michigan with my wonderful husband and daughter and work as a data analyst.
Baking is something I consider to be somewhat of a science, which is what I used as inspiration for this blog. I’m good with precise things. I like numbers, I’m kinda nerdy, and I think dedicating 4 hours to making the perfect cupcake is time well spent. Did I mention that my willpower vanishes into thin air when anything with chocolate is set in front of me?
Background and experience
I started My Sweet Precision way back in 2012!
I'm proud to say that I'm a self-taught baker with a passion for making delicious treats. I'm constantly trying new recipes and tweaking the flavors until the end result is something that I'm proud of.
Over the years, I've had plenty of practice, which has led me to a level of baking expertise that I'm truly confident in. With my dedication to research, creativity, and experimentation, you can trust any recipe I put out to be top-notch.
I bake for so many reasons. The creativity and inspiration that I pour into my recipes give me a reprieve from my daily work life. Memories of cooking sweet potato pie in the kitchen with my dad and Christmas cookies with my mom have provided bonds that span generations.
Even remembering the day my husband confessed to entering the pumpkin cheesecake I made for his birthday into his work baking competition and taking credit after it won still makes me smile as I whisk away in the kitchen.

I started my blog using the camera on my iPhone 4. Nothing fancy, just me and my iPhone for several years. I upgraded to the Nikon D3400 in 2018 and I've loved it! I use a 50mm f/1.8G lens and I couldn't be happier. I have plans to upgrade as I continue to grow.
