I’m Alison, a PR professional by day and avid home cook and baker by night and weekends. When I’m not reaching out to journalists and reporters, or developing content for my company, you can find me in the kitchen with my dog Verucca – aka Rookie – at my side. She’s my sidekick and the better half of Two of a Kind.
I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember. From making mud pies with my friends (inedible) to rolling meatballs with my mom (edible and incredible), I’ve never shied away from getting my hands dirty.
I grew up watching Martha Stewart, Jacques Pépin and Julia Child make magic in the kitchen. Now that I have cable, the Food Network is on almost all the time. But I don’t just watch TV – I peruse cooking books, magazines and blogs, and sites like foodgawker and Instagram, too. This is where I get ideas for what to cook and bake – and the dishes I discover and recreate are what you’ll find here. With so many cooking resources at my fingertips, it’s no wonder I’m always eager to try something new.
