Baking • Recipe Development • Food Photography
Thanks for stopping by! I’m Rebecca Blackwell, a baker, recipe developer, food photographer and full time RV nomad.
I’ve been baking for 25 years, both professionally and just for the sheer pleasure of it. In 2013, I launched this blog as a way to share my most tested, trusted, and much-loved recipes.
In 2018, I launched my second food blog, A Little and A Lot, which is devoted to meal plans and dinner recipes for every night of the week.
As a full time traveler, living, working, and baking from a 5th wheel RV, it's also where I share our experiences of life on the road.
Of Batter and Dough is a baking recipe website with hundreds of tested recipes for everyday and special occasion baking.
On these pages, you will find recipes for everyday indulgences, special occasion extravagances, and plenty that fall somewhere in between.
“Every recipe I’ve ever tried from this site comes out perfect. The instructions are always so clear and full of the information I need to feel like a confident, experienced baker! This is my go-to site for baking recipes!”
The best way to stay up-to-date on new recipes and updated old ones, is to subscribe to my email list using the form on the right and bottom of this page. The next best solution is to simply visit me here often, checking the home page for new recipes and updates.
Over the years, I’ve partnered with a variety of brands that I know and love to create recipes, content, and photographs that showcase their products.
“Working with Rebecca makes my job so much easier. She is professional, creative, reliable, a great communicator, and does great work.”

"I have had the rare privilege of watching Rebecca create many recipes, and even collaborated on some. I’ve gotten to taste the iterations as she goes through her process and enjoyed the fruits of her labor many many times.
My refrigerator and freezer are a treasure box full of her sauces, oils, spice blends and leftovers. Her blogs are the places I look first when I go to make anything, sweet or savory.
In the past 8 years or so that I’ve known her, I’ve observed several things which I believe make her incredibly unique:
- Rebecca is truly a recipe developer. Other sites seem to find something popular, give a small tweak and re-post it as their own. The extra steps she takes (roasting and grinding pecans for chocolate chip cookies, or layering three kinds of lemon flavoring for her lemon bars) are tried and tested, again and again, until it becomes what she has imagined they should be, always striving to make it even better.
- She is deliberate and takes her time with each step, whether it’s painstakingly dicing mounds of mushrooms for the raviolis we made together, or fixing a beurre blanc sauce that broke. Which brings me to the next point...
- She really really understands the chemistry of what is going on, and if she doesn’t then she will research until she finds the answer. I’ve never asked her a “why” question for which she was stumped. She knows why she makes the decisions that she does, because she has tried various ways of doing techniques and found the ones that work best. I’ve messaged her, frantic because I just put 4 layers of cake in the oven and realized I forgot the salt, and she gave me a remedy (just add more salt to the fillings).
- She has imagination, and will try combinations most people don’t think of. Have you tried her Mushroom and Noodle Stir Fry with Strawberries? Genius and vegan.
And she is continuing to learn and expand. I’ve heard some of her ideas to add to these sites. Can’t wait to see what’s next." - Judy Bowman
