Alyssa Cook (Guest Author)

​Alyssa is a baker and blogger who concentrates mostly on gourmet and specialty cupcakes, occasionally venturing into the realms of other foods like stir fry and pasta. However, Alyssa is a life-long lover of all things food, not because it tastes great (well, that too), but because of the way that it brings people together. Family, Friends, Food, and Fun are Alyssa's "Four Favorite F's", and this foolproof formula has always served her well. Alyssa is currently a student of Advertising at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and besides baking, she enjoys studying, reading, arts & crafts, making puns, new hobbies, photography, eating, biking, brewing tea, blogging, and good craft beer. As the creator of Romancing the Stove, Alyssa dreams of bringing friends together over good eats on a larger scale than just her dining room table.
