Jennie Phaneuf is the baker, photographer, recipe developer, and mess maker behind The Messy Baker. Making a mess in the kitchen is highly encouraged and licking the spatula is an absolute must. In her world, cookies are a nutritional breakfast option, sprinkles taste good on just about everything, and sangria is best served daily. Jennie lives in Baltimore, MD with her husband (known as Squirrel on the blog) and two furry kiddos. When she isn't making a mess in the kitchen, Jennie enjoys spending time outdoors, eating her way through Baltimore, reading, and dancing every chance she gets.
