Hi! I’m Shani, and I’m the resident Butter Ambassador here at Begin with Butter. Welcome!

This site is a resource to help you to become a better baker, by helping you decode the techniques, equipment and ingredients that advanced home bakers and pros use! I love beginners here, because I remember my own beginnings.

My origin story is a little atypical for a baker. You see, I couldn’t bake AT ALL until I began, quite by accident.

While I’m not always formal in my techniques, you can rest assured that all of the techniques that you see on this site will be tried and true, and that they’ve withstood the test of time. I hope you find them as useful as I have; it’s honestly made me feel very connected to all of the women in my family to be able to share this gift with them now.

I’m so glad you’re here. For more about Begin with Butter, take a look here!

Success! You're on the list.
