Welcome to The Bookish Brötchen. I’m happy that you’ve found your way here.

My name is Amelia. I’m a librarian by training, but a baker at heart. I’ve been creating breads, cakes, cookies, and untold amounts of carbohydrates since I was a pre-teen. However, for a myriad of reasons including my own health I had to give up most grains and switch to a low-carb diet almost two years ago. I now want to share my knowledge with the world, including simple meal plans, easy recipes, and how to shop low-carb and healthy on a budget. I’m not always perfect and I still enjoy eating some “bad” snacks, but my philosophy is, if you eat well 90% of the time you’ll be ok.

Besides cooking, I’m also a voracious reader. As such, in addition to recipes, I’ll also share what I’ve been reading and loving. My favorite genres are horror and romance, but I also love a great narrative non-fiction title. I’m also a first-time mom and spend most of my days trying to get in a few chapters during nap times.

I believe watching a good sitcom is like receiving a warm hug, reality TV is not a guilty pleasure to be ashamed of, and nothing can make you feel better than a great skincare routine.
