HI, I'M ALYSSA!
Welcome to Cookies & Crumb!
I am a pharmacist by day and a self-taught baker by night. I created this blog as a way to share my passion for baking with my family and friends!
For as long as I can remember, I have had an insatiable sweet tooth, and it wasn’t until I started working at a local bakery in high school that I realized I wanted to learn more. I became so fascinated by pastry because it combined my love of science and precision with endless creativity.
Some of my favorite sources of inspiration come from desserts I grew up eating, new foods that I try and pastry chefs that I truly admire like Stella Parks, Joy Wilson and Claire Saffitz.
Baking can be challenging, and I am still learning everyday. On this blog, you will see my journey as I tackle new techniques and recipes with the ultimate goal of creating desserts that make an ordinary day feel a bit more special.
Thank you for being a part of the Cookies & Crumb family!
