I’m Lisa Brown. I grew up mostly in Louisiana, took a pit stop in Oklahoma, now living in Houston, but Southern California is Home. That’s my husband Jameson in the photo with me. He’s Mississippi born, Tennessee raised, and transplanted in Texas. We stumbled across each other here in Houston, and after a few years of baking, BBQing, and Star Wars binges, we figured that after all this time if two introverts like ourselves could tolerate each other that long, we might be onto something! So we got married on Star Wars Day 2019 (because obvious reasons).
I started System of a Brown because apparently my full time gig as a high school band director doesn’t keep me busy enough! I’m a self taught home baker that got started baking from box mixes for my students as bribes and prizes. Several years ago when I first moved to Texas, one of my colleagues told the percussion students that if they won the band olympics that I would bake them cupcakes for a whole month! (Without warning me! I found out when they did!) Me, absolutely NOT being a baker, panicked. But after a few box mixes and a little creativity and I started to figure some things out. Thousands of cupcakes and countless recipe revisions later, I bake everything from scratch using high quality ingredients.
I’d love to create some custom treats for your special occasion!
