Ellen grew up smelling her mother’s fresh baked bread in the oven, and watching herbs, vegetables, and berries grow in her backyard garden. One of her favorite childhood memories involves receiving an elaborately made Peter Rabbit marzipan birthday cake.

In between Emerson College classes, Ellen looks for interesting recipes and food bloggers to inspire her own cooking creations.
