Hi, I'm Ellesse!
The recipe developer and photographer behind Crumbcoats & Wine. I started this blog as a way to share my passion for all things food. Here you'll recipes that I love and share often with family and friends.

My love for cooking began with watching my aunt who own her own restaurant for almost 20 years. When it comes to baking, my great aunt was baker in the family and the best baker in town. But I didn't start baking myself until meeting my husband's mother who gave me the task of my Jan Hagel cookies from scratch 

I originally started this blog in 2018 but took it down soon after because I didn't have the time to devote it. But during my husband battle with COVID-19 in December of 2020, I needed something to keep me busy. Thus Crumbcoats & Wine was reborn. Since then we've built a wonderful community of food lovers from around the world.

There's always something cooking up in my kitchen, but when I'm not baking or sautéing, you can find me watering my plants, listening to Motown or sipping a glass of red wine. 

I hope you'll find something here you'll love as much as I do and share with your loved ones. Because there's nothing better than good food, good wine and a good time.
