Allison Schein

Allison was raised in Orange County, where she grew tired of monotonous sunshine and traffic and decided to go to school in the Middle of Nowhere, Massachusetts. She lived in Paris for a couple of years with the goal of finding the perfect pain au chocolat and Frenchman, but returned to California empty handed with a pastry fixation and an affinity for beer. She spends most of her time in the kitchen concocting delicious treats, such as her infamous brownies and the ever-popular spicy chocolate crinkle cookies. When not covered in flour or up to her elbows in chocolate, she tries to watch every movie possible and be a contributing member of society, all while spewing snark left and right, trying to bring a smile—or even a smirk—to people’s faces. And if that doesn’t work, she force-feeds them cupcakes.
