Alexa grew up surrounded by restauranteurs and foodies. She soon discovered her own fascination with the culinary world and became enamored with the therapeutic benefits of baking after helping her grandmother make her annual variety of twenty different kinds of Christmas cookies. After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Culture and Communication, she moved to Boston and just received her Master’s degree in Gastronomy from Boston University. She continues to chronicle her love of baking and cooking on her blog, Simple Eats. Aside from baking, Alexa loves traveling to other parts of New England, working out and trying as many craft beers as possible.
