Meet the Hostess

Highline_DanielleSoloThank you for stopping by, it’s great to meet you! My name is Danielle and I am a peanut butter obsessed self-taught baker and recipe developer from Omaha, NE. I’ve lived all over the Midwest (mostly Chicago) and wherever I am, my day begins with coffee and a brainstorm on what to bake next. I developed my love for food, baking and entertaining by watching and learning from my mom, grandmas and closest friends whom I just adore.

What you really need to know about me, is that I believe in celebrating. Big or small, momentous or mundane, there’s always a reason to drink Champagne and cheers with my guests over a delicious meal. I show my affection with food and have always said that if I cook or bake for you, I must love you. It’s true.

I created Heart of a Hostess to share my love language with the world and to encourage you to call your friends, co-workers or in-laws and invite them over to celebrate.  All dietary preferences welcome! Pop some bubbles, cook something new and savor the way that good food connects us all. When we open our hearts and our homes to others we’re bound to create something special, so take off your shoes, grab your apron and join me. This is going to be fun!
