The short of it
WHAT I DO: I develop recipes and make videos teaching people how to make those recipes. I love being in front of the camera, and you can check out some of my favorite videos here.I share recipes on this blog, the New York Times, the Food Network, and my cookbook!
WHERE I LIVE: New York City. But, I visit my hometown of Baton Rouge, LA often.
HOW I LEARNED TO COOK AND BAKE: I’m mostly self taught. I learned the basics from my mom and granny, and the rest from cookbooks much like the one I wrote, Life is What You Bake It,. I won Season 4 of the Great American Baking Show, and that whole process helped me trust my baking instincts and believe in myself!
WHY I’M HERE: I want to help you become a better, more confident baker. I also want you to know that you can achieve your dreams if you’re willing to put in the work 😉
WHEN THIS ALL STARTED: I graduated from USC with a degree in Psychology and French, and then I got my JD from USC Law School. During my last year of law school, I started a cooking blog. I went on to practice law for 8 years, but then I decided it was time to live the life I wanted — so I bet on myself and took a huge risk to try to make it as a full-time foodie. I tell the whole story in my cookbook.
