Hi there, glad you found us! I’m Lori Baltazar, the founder of this website and a food writer with too many sweet teeth. I started Dessert Comes First (DCF) in May 2005 and I tell my stories about food on this blog and through my photos, videos, and my book, also called Dessert Comes First, which came out in September 2013. In 2015, the year I was supposed to celebrate DCF’s 10th anniversary, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a curveball alright – you can read about it here – and several months after completing cancer treatment, I’ve decided to start blogging again. I’m passionate now about healthy breakfasts, I’ll be sharing my recipes here, and the occasional dessert. I think of it as 80/20: 80% clean eating and 20% deliciously dirty; because dessert still runs through my veins.
After 12 years of blogging, I’m thrilled to have a team join me in sharing more stories about food. This blog is for people who are zealous and passionate about food and we’re always looking for more people to contribute. If you’re a food lover and want to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
