Hi, I'm Ellie!
I am the recipe developer, food stylist, taste tester, and photographer behind Kitchen 335!
I am from a small town in East Texas. My family owned a bed and breakfast when I was growing up and I camped out in the kitchen any chance I got, stealing fingerfuls of my mom's white chocolate cheesecake cheesecake and snagging blueberry muffins off of the breakfast buffet.
I started baking in high school and it became a hobby of mine, a way to relieve stress and to be creative. I kept this up through college and that's when I decided that I wanted to pursue baking as a career, but with my sites set on owning a bakery.
I attended pastry school in New York City at The International Culinary Center and that's where my love for pastries really took on a life of its own. The first time I made a perfect macaron I was hooked!
After pastry school, I went to work using my business degree and decided to start a blog as a creative outlet. Soon after I really dove into the photography side of things and found a new passion. My old love of baking and a newfound love of photography found a home together in Kitchen 335 and I found a career path that I didn't expect.
What You Will Find On Kitchen 335
- Delicious desserts. You will find all kinds of desserts from the simplest of cookies and brownies to the more difficult macarons and souffles.
- Approachable recipes. My number one goal is to make being in the kitchen approachable instead of intimidating. I break down every step and provide step-by-step photos to make each recipe as simple as possible.
- Recipes you can trust. Each recipe on Kitchen 335 has been tested several times to ensure that I'm delivering the best possible recipes for you to enjoy.
- A variety of flavors. I love to bake with different types of flavors and flavor pairings.
More about Ellie and Kitchen 335
335 was the address of my parent's house when I was growing up. It is the place I was first exposed to food as an expression of love and will always be home to me. It is what I strive to convey in my blog and recipes!
Of course! I think that most of my Cookies and Bars recipes are a great place to start. More specifically, my Fudgy Brownies, Oreo Bars, Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies, or Chocolate Lava Cakes are all so simple and delicious!
First of all, I love someone who loves a baking challenge! Macarons are such a fun and fickle cookie. I have so many amazing macaron recipes with tons of tips and tricks! This Lemon Soufflé is made with only three ingredients but can be tricky. My Caramel Cinnamon Rolls have a caramel base, yeasted dough, and brown butter icing, each can be tricky but end up with the most delicious result!
I always thought that I wanted to own a bakery, but after I went to pastry school and worked in a tea shop/bakery I realized how much work and time went into owning your own shop. After graduating I went back to the business world and just baked on the side. I found myself in need of creative outlet and after some research decided that a blog was the way to go!
