Cupcakes from Get Sweet Smart

My name is Brianna, and I was born with a sweet tooth.

I was the child who believed a slice of pie made a perfectly acceptable breakfast. (Let’s be real: sometimes I still do. 😁) I’m pretty sure there will be rivers of chocolate next to those streets of gold in heaven.

Any health expert, however, would assert that one cannot survive in this life on sweets alone. I may like my 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. The nutrition info you see on my recipes is calculated using the SparkPeople Recipe Calculator.

This is not my full-time job, but in full disclosure, I may receive a percentage if you click one of my Amazon links and make a purchase (at no extra charge to you).

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!
