Eric started his career in entertainment news and has been featured in publications including Vulture, them., Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, and Broadway.com. Prior to entering the food media biz and running easygayoven full-time, Eric worked at TED as a social media specialist from 2019 to 2021.
Eric’s lifelong passion for baking intensified just as he began moving through a series of tiny Brooklyn kitchens. After his Instagram account devoted to cookies, cakes and more started to gain traction online, his hobby of food content creation turned into a side hustle — and now a full-blown career. He loves learning new things about the science and art of baking, and sharing them with others.
I love the quarter and eighth-sheet pans from Nordic-Ware. They are perfect for small jobs where you just can’t bring yourself to lug out and dirty a half-sheet pan, such as: toasting nuts, heating up leftover pizza, melting cheese on a sandwich, baking just 2 cookies from your freezer stash…the list goes on. Plus, they’re sturdy, easy to clean, and don’t warp in the oven.
