Hello!  My name is Kirsten and Baxter and Main is my blog.  I decided to start it after I entered a “death by chocolate” bake-off in early 2011 while trying to beat the doldrums of winter and I wound up winning the whole thing.  I have a trophy to prove it and everything.  The name “Baxter and Main” comes from streets I have lived on or at the intersection of over the years.

I recently relocated to Indiana after spending several years in the dairy-filled rolling green hills of southwestern Wisconsin, and prior to that I lived in New York City for five years, and prior to that I lived in Detroit, and am originally from mid-Michigan.  As a result I can make restaurant recommendations in any of those areas plus western Massachusetts where I went to college.  Point is: moving around so much and being exposed to a wide variety of foods has made me something of a food snob, though not in an elitist way.  I love a good diner or hole-in-the-wall dining establishment just as much as the next guy.  I like eating out but I also love to cook and bake and have often found that the simplest recipes are the tastiest, so I’m going to try to share the best of those with you.

Thanks for checking things out.
