ABOUT LAUREN AND LIZ: Lauren Allen grew up in a home where everything was made from scratch; from egg noodles and chicken stock to jam and bread. Upon leaving home and entering the world of dreary college cafeteria food, she, along with her twin sister, Liz, were eager to compile their treasured recipes into an online collection, and Tastes Better from Scratch (TBFS) was born!
