Inside BruCrew Life

My name is Jocelyn and I am the baker, photographer, and writer behind Inside BruCrew Life. I have been married to my best friend for over 14 years, and we have three great kids. On my blog you will find plenty of sugar and treats. Occasionally I like to throw out a dinner recipe and surprise my readers. That doesn’t happen too often. Most days you will find me in my kitchen baking cookies or cupcakes. I believe in cake mixes and using lots of sprinkles. Because of this crazy habit, I now have a love/hate relationship with the gym. I do have to admit that I kind of, sort of like running now. But don’t hold me to that. I am a huge procrastinator, and I drink too much coffee and Diet Dr. Pepper. Its that caffeine high that helps me get all my projects finished. I love my family and I love what I do. Please come over and Bake. Eat. Repeat. as I share life from our kitchen.
