About Me

Thanks for visiting the Augusta Vegan Bakery Blog! I'm so glad you stopped by. This blog was created to document my adventures in the world of vegan baking and entrepreneurship. I'm not trained in either field, so really I'm just throwing darts with a blindfold on. Makes for better reading I figure.

My name is Veronica, and I started Augusta Vegan Bakery from the kitchen in my Los Angeles apartment last summer. I do most of my sales through Etsy, a fabulous marketplace for homemade goods, though I also fill local or special orders upon request. I absolutely love to bake, and I especially enjoy putting a vegan twist on the classics. I like to think that my baked goods are just like grandma would have made if she’d been vegan!

I just couldn't help it, she was so cute.
switched to a vegan diet in the spring of 2008, and I never looked back. By removing all animal products from my diet, I’ve seen vast improvements in my health, energy, and overall morale. Veganism has also awakened a serious passion for food in me, and over the past two and a half years I’ve spent hundreds of hours in the kitchen coming up with new recipes. I’ve chronicled some of my food adventures at another blog called La Vie en Vegan, but I’ve found that Augusta Vegan Bakery has really proven to be the most rewarding outlet for my passion. I love experimenting with baked goods, and having the bakery allows me to stretch my creative muscles on a regular basis!

If you'd like to learn more about how I came up with the name for the bakery, take a look at my very first post here, "An Introduction." You just might see some parallels with this "about me" page, 'cause back then I didn't know you could make an "about me" page. If you are further interested in reading my ramblings about myself, you can read some gritty details here, a post from my old blog about why I was starting a food blog. 

Thanks again for visiting!
