Reeni

I like to use fresh, seasonal ingredients to create modern comfort food. I breathe life into much-loved, boring classics by giving them a new, unique twist. I can turn the most hated vegetables into something deliciously palatable. I balance my savory recipes with irresistible desserts and believe homemade brownies are perfectly acceptable for breakfast. I love to recreate my favorite junk food and restaurant meals at home where I can control the ingredients while ditching chemicals and preservatives. I believe cheese is it's own food group and when I see a piece of fruit I think of all the different desserts I can bake with it.

When I'm not in the kitchen you can find me eating at my favorite diner, shopping for kitchen stuff, drinking tea by the gallons or snuggling with my Kitchen Cat, Moon, all while dreaming of my next meal.
