Cheryl Vivian is a neurotic baker who came to DC via Detroit, Chicago, and New York. She likes to get nerdy about baking and loves grilled cheese, charcuterie, a good happy hour and vintage everything. There are at least two dozen eggs, four pounds of butter, and a quart of buttermilk in the fridge at all times. She doesn't cry over burnt cookies, sunken cakes, or tough pie dough but she will try (and try) until it's just right. Cheryl loves to blend new trends with traditional recipes, and believes that everything is better with a pinch of salt.
