I'm Molly. I'm convinced love is the answer, that you can enjoy butter and veggies equally, that delicious baked goods should be something everyone can enjoy and that I was called to serve others through my passion for baking and cooking.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in the summer of 2018 and I decided I was going to reverse my symptoms naturally with an anti-inflammatory diet, natural supplements, understanding my blood work and clean products.
The recipes here are a direct reflection of the way I like to live my life. With healthy and delicious meals, snacks and desserts that are easy to make (because who has 2 hours to cook dinner?!). My recipes can be customized to fit into any diet and are almost always gluten free. Though you'll still find indulgent desserts in the archives from when I first started! I love health and fitness but know that a chocolate/funfetti/peanut butter dessert is all you need once in a while.
My little kitchen and my camera are my creative outlets and What Molly Made is how I get to share it with all of you. Often with a lot of run-on-sentences, exclamation points, and random stories that may or may not have anything to do with baking.
I'm a self-taught/Food Network-taught cook/baker. I'm also a daughter, sister, girlfriend and Believer. I live in Columbus, Ohio and work on What Molly Made full time. My favorite dessert is a chocolate chip cookie, working out keeps me sane and I like to pretend my car is my personal concert venue. If I could be any emoji it would be this ?, I watch Friends every night before bed and I believe a small act of kindness (usually a cookie) can change the trajectory of someone's day.
About What Molly Made
I’ve always known I loved to bake. From the time I was a young teenager I was searching for reasons to bake for the people in my life and trying new banana bread recipes on a daily basis. I got pretty good at it over the years and my passion kept growing. After I graduated college I realized how hard it was to balance a full time job, family, friends and eating healthy and I figured out easy ways to make meals that people often wouldn't even know are "healthy." I know this love for baking and sharing how I make easy, healthy meals is meant to serve a greater purpose and that I was called to serve people and this blog is the gift God gave me to do that.
Right before I launched What Molly Made (in 2015) I had the a-ha moment that my love for cooking/baking and people could be, and is, my purpose in this life. The "why" behind What Molly Made is to give you the confidence and recipes to feed you and your whole family healthy meals that are approachable and fun. But I also want to keep feeding hungry hearts with love, grace and encouragement.
I want each one of you to know your recipe questions/comments are welcome here. But so are your hearts and stories and that I value every single connection I'm able to make. Because we’re all human, right? And the stories we share have the power to connect. And those stories have the power to make sure everyone knows they aren’t and shouldn’t go through this life alone.
Because there's no such thing as too much dessert or love❤️.
I took a step of faith by starting WMM and ended of finding my passion in life. And I am so grateful for that! I hope I get the chance to connect with each one of you and that my recipes inspire you to live a healthy life. Sprinkled with sugar, of course.
