Welcome to Two Frys!

Sophia and Allen, Chef Guy Fieri
We are Sophia and Allen and in 2010,  Two Frys was born after attending our first Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival in NJ. We took hundreds of photos, ate great food, met a lot of chefs and food related business owners. We decided to start this blog and Two Frys grew from there sharing recipes, product reviews and food related event coverage. My focus is more on baking and cooking, while Allen is the expert on hot sauce, BBQ sauce and cooking with spices. We hope you enjoy our blog.

Allen and me are avid home cooks and we are always trying out new recipes and developing our own. I love sharing my baking recipes and we both share our cooking recipes. We cover food festivals, food related events, and farmers markets in NYC and NJ. We also review food products (primarily hot sauce, BBQ sauce, and spices). We highlight restaurants and bakeries from places we come across in our travels and from our neighborhood (Riverdale, Bronx, NY) where we currently reside.

My background is not in the culinary industry and I am a self-taught baker. I love to bake and create desserts. I am known for my decorated cookies amongst my family and friends. I am constantly learning new techniques to improve my skills and plan to one day sell my baking products. Baking is my hobby, my passion, and it keeps me centered and happy. Baking for me is a huge part of my life. I bake cookies, cakes, cupcakes, flan, pies, muffins and more. While I have worked with fondant in some of my baking projects, I prefer to decorate my cakes with buttercream. I also prefer baking old-fashioned, traditional, classic and vintage desserts over modern ones. I have fond memories of my Mom baking Dominican cakes since childhood, so it's no surprise I ended up a baker.

I have a Master of Arts Degree in Biological Anthropology, and currently work full-time as an Academic Affairs Manager at a college. When I attended graduate school, I immersed myself in forensic anthropology and human osteology (bones) studies. I also started baking since it calmed my nerves. I found myself baking in between exams, writing papers and during the research and writing of my thesis, Paleodietary Reconstruction from Stable Carbon, Nitrogen and Strontium Isotopes and Methodological Issues. I never looked back!
