Getting to Know Me
Hey there! I’m Elle-nice to know you. Thank you for visiting and welcome to my blog site. OMG…I’m pretty excited typing this as the first blog post. [Rookie Probs]. Anywho, I’d love to tell you guys more about me so you won’t think I’m a random, unaccredited chick writing a food blog for kicks and giggles. Here are some fun basic facts:
- My name is Gabrielle [Elle] McBay. I’m a twenty something that’s obsessed with food. [24 to be exact]
I’m from Dallas, Texas so most of my recipes you see will have Butter in them. Yes. Butter.
I have a chihuahua named Jet. He’s my world. He’ll probably be in some of my shots.
I started an award-winning pastry company in high school, Crumbs by Elle, that’s been landed me in Forbes Magazine Online, The New York Times, Black Enterprise Magazine, ABC Family and a whole bunch of cool other stuff.
I Graduated from TCU [Texas Christian University-go Frogs!] Dec 2014 so I’m still trying to figure life out, blah blah blah.
I studied Food Management in college so I’m familiar with food, ingredients, and the composition of recipes.
If you see me post pics from the past and my hair is different in each one-don’t be alarmed. I went through some thangs in college. Changing up my hair was my rebellious self-expression. Those days are over…for the most part.
8. I’ve worked in kitchens and bakeries as a Pastry Chef, so if you see a lot of dessert recipes, just know that they are bomb.com
Hopefully you read that intro list. If not…well…[sips tea]. Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to know more about you! What’s your name? Where are you from? [Is that creeper to ask?] If you don’t think it is-comment below! With that being said-let’s get in the kitchen and get to cooking! May the odds ever be in your favor.
Peace, Love, and Food,
