About The Author

Allyson Reedy is a dessert-obsessed food writer and restaurant critic in Denver, Colorado. When she’s not taste-testing or checking out new restaurants for a story, she’s probably tripping over her pug in her home kitchen while trying out cookie recipes. Oh, and eating batter and dough by the fistful before her kids ask to lick the bowl; there’s a lot of that happening, too. Read more from her in the Denver Post, 5280 Magazine, and Bon Appétit.
