About the Pancake Princess: 10 facts

//1// Once upon a time, I was published in a book, permanently capturing all my teen angst for all the world to see.

//2// Favorite thing to bake: layer cakes (even though they are often lopsided and ugly).

//3// Because I recently developed a mild allergy to dairy and I don’t eat meat, I eat a mostly vegan diet except for eggs and fish.

//4// Aside from cake, I’m always craving: cornbread, burritos, sweet potato fries, runny eggs on avocado toast and all Momofuku cakes. I could normally care less about cookies, but not very much less.

//5// Dream job: Kenji’s job.

//6// I had a brief, wonderful, food-writing internship at the Houston Chronicle where I got to pen a few articles, get a peek into the food-writing world and bask in the tutelage of one of the most amazing food writers ever.

//7// In college, I co-taught a baking course focused on basic baking techniques and healthy recipe modifications.

//8// I once took a solo trip to Paris to study surrealist art (and eat my weight in croissants). I’m dying to go back. Current places topping my travel bucket list: Greece, Thailand, Iceland.

//9// I 100% like to pretend I believe in astrology.

//10// My favorite pancakes come from Baby Barnaby’s.

    I saw your comment about wanting to go back to Paris. Talk to your roomie. You’re more than welcome for a week to use us as a Parisian base for your cuisine explorations this summer. Fixing us dinner one night would be more than enough in exchange!

      That would be so fantastic!!! I was telling Christina that I’m on the verge of booking a trip to London with my cousin this summer and we would love to take a trip over to Paris!

        Consider it a done deal, just let me know when. I’ll be at our flat in June and July this Summer, and I believe Christina is planning to be there some time in May. If we’re not there you can still use the flat.

    I went to grad school in LA, but moved to Dallas about 4 years ago. Your pancake recipes look amazing! I rarely make pancakes at home, but I’m excited to try some of your recipes.
