Meet the Chefs


This blog, filled with bad bread puns and insights on life, was started by Erica and Allison in 2015 during our senior year of high school. Born and raised in California and New York respectively, we now both go to college in Texas, where we spend our time hiking, meditating, and teaching spin classes at the local gym.

Just kidding, neither of us actually gets out of bed each morning. Good thing we can blog from our laptops, or none of us would be here right now.

Posts are ideally published every Thursday in rotating order (Allison one week, Erica the next, etc.) But depending on the number of buy-one-get-one specials at the local mac ‘n cheese restaurant or the amount of chemistry exams in the coming weeks, the actual time between posts may vary. Sorry for the sporadicity. We’re working on our educations.




I’ve been told I have the personality and social capabilities of a squirrel.

I’m 19 and a sophomore civil engineering major at the University of Texas. I love Austin to death, but I was born and raised in Los Angeles.

My biggest dream in life is to build the world’s most structurally-sound bridge. I’d also like to have a nice dog, maybe a hamster, and most importantly a basketball court in my backyard.



I work as a TA for an engineering design class and do research in an asphalt lab. If I’m not slaving over homework in the nearest library, I’m probably at a coffee shop drinking iced lattes and writing. School is life, but so is finding the best espresso in Austin and filling in my ever-growing collection of journals.

I took karate for fourteen years and am now dabbling in college intramural sports that I don’t actually know how to play. Besides accidentally tripping my teammates in C-League soccer games, I also spend my time playing 2048, browsing Spotify, and watching Green Bay Packer games.

Sometimes I cry when I see really adorable photos of cats.

I grew up in New York but moved to Texas for college, which basically means I spend most of my time complaining about the South. I just finished my first year at Baylor University, conveniently located just north of Erica.

I’m studying biochemistry and math. I love organic chemistry and have been known to cry over the beauty of molecular structures (I probably cry too much). I currently mix chemicals in a beaker for fun and one day I want to mix chemicals in beakers for a living.

When I’m not talking about science, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading novels, and obsessively refreshing my email.



  1. I find myself troubled by the fact you named a website for my cousin Sourdough, as I, the superior fancy French bread, the Baguette, go ignored by the internet. I am currently writing this to you from a fancy French cafe table, scratching my crumby exterior, and hoping that you take responsibility for this mindless oversight, and make sure that the Baguette is at once highly regarded for its fancy French goodness.
    Thank you.

      1. Well I forgive you – I’m currently with the supreme camel of France and we are discussing how to move forward in the journey to camels rights.
        Also, I’ve been drinking fancy French liquor and I just love this blog.
        Long live the bread of France. We are a better bread than everyone else. Whooooooooohooo
