Jaelene - Lead Baker of KFKF Bakery

My whole life has been centered around food. I love eating it, making it, and sharing it.

Since I was 3 years old, Ive been able to handle a chef's knife and work my way around any recipe that came to me. My passion in life is feeding people and sharing desserts, because really, who doesnt feel better when there's a warm chocolate chip cookie right in front of you?

I believe that everyone should have access to good food. As someone who has spent most of her life overweight starting at an early age and losing over 70 pounds, I understand how important working out and having a balanced diet is (super hard when you're a pastry chef btw)!

The message of KFKF speaks to me as someone who LOVES fried chicken (especially Popeyes spicy chicken sandwich) but also works out 5-6 days a week. It's been a long road to learning to love my body and this amazing community has helped me realize that it's okay if I don't look the way I think I need to look. I am perfect in my own body, and whoever is reading this, you are too.

So with over 7 years of professional baking experience, I’m very excited to be joining the Kinda Fit Kinda Fat Bakery team! Grab that box of doughnuts! Lift those weights! I’ll be in the back baking if you need me! :)
