Food Blogger / Sports Nut / Dog Lover / Pittsburgh Girl
Introduction
My name is Michelle Lettrich and I am the voice behind the food blog Brown Eyed Baker (i.e. BEB). I am a food blogger, photographer, a hockey fanatic, sports nut, mom to a little boy and two Golden Retrievers (Einstein & Duke), and a Pittsburgh girl at heart.

Back in February of 2007, I was living a couple of hours away from friends and family, and winter claustrophobia had begun to set in when I stumbled across a food blog online. I had always loved to bake (a gene my mom claims skipped a generation and went straight from my grandma to me) and enjoyed writing, so this seemed like a perfect way to escape the grey winter days. I figured it would be a creative outlet, perhaps nudge me to try some new, more challenging recipes, and my mom and sister could check out what I was making. That was over eight years ago and the rest, as they say, is history. 

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, home of the famed Primanti Bros. sandwich. In a previous life, I worked as a marketing analyst in a few different cube farms. I am entirely self-taught when it comes to the kitchen, learning as I go through cookbooks, magazines, television shows, YouTube, and a tremendous amount of trial and error. My grandma baked by feel; her hands knew when dough was ready and she never second-guessed herself. I try to channel her confidence when I’m in the kitchen, and hope to pass it along to my readers, too!

When I’m not in the kitchen covered in flour, you can usually find me watching sports, lacing up my ice hockey skates, obsessing over my fantasy football team, playing a rousing game of 500 Bid, or spending time with my husband at our home in Pittsburgh with our son, Joseph, and two Golden Retrievers, Einstein and Duke.
