Ellen

We met while working for the State of California and both enjoy baking and researching new recipes. Ellen is the "exact cook" while Jacqueline is the "wing-it cook," a great compliment. We enjoy baking as a stress-releiver as well as a great way to balance our creative sides with our technical working lives.
