Hi, I'm Aleka! I am the recipe creator and photographer here at AGT.
I am also a wife, mother of two crazy boys, math teacher and entertainer at heart with a serious passion for cooking.
I grew up spending a lot of time in the kitchen of my parents donut shop in New Jersey. At the time, my papu and yiayia had their own shop too. We were a donut family.
Donut, donuts and more donuts...and shockingly, I didn't even like them!
Then as I got older, I worked there to help my parents out. I started as a waitress and eventually became the chef and finally the manager. Over that time, I gained more than ten years experience which is what contributed to my love for the culinary world as well as hospitality.
I have a masters degree in education and currently teach middle school math full-time. I live in southern NJ with my husband Derek and our two crazy boys Calvin and Lucas.
I am also Greek and Yugoslavian so it's all about the food (and music) at our family gatherings! If you joined us on Easter, you would see my yiayia eating the eyeball of the goat we just roasted. 😆
