Cupcakes from Get Sweet Smart

My name is Brianna, and I’m kind of a sugarholic.

Born with a sweet tooth, I was the child who believed a slice of pie made a perfectly acceptable breakfast. I’m pretty sure heaven will involve excessive amounts of buttercream.

Any health expert, however, would assert that one cannot survive in this life on sweets alone. I may have a propensity toward dessert, but I also want to be smart about what I put into my stomach.

So I get sweet smart!

I love baking and enjoying the treats I make, but I’m a strategic sugarholic. I do my best to make up for my sometimes over-the-top desserts with healthier foods that are just as (okay, just about as) crave-worthy. You’ll find nutritional information underneath most of the recipes I post, whether calorie-laden or figure-friendly, so that you can be smart about your sweets, too.

I have a journalism degree and a photography background…and I’m a grad school dropout who decided an MBA was a great dream, just not mine. I create and test recipes for sweetness in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and I shoot with a Canon 5D.

I love cupcakes, summer, and Minnesota. Puppy chow has been my favorite food since kindergarten. I once lived in Florida, mostly because of a magical little place centered around a mouse. I’ve sampled every cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory.

I’m Brianna, and this is how I stay smart and keep it sweet!
