Looking for a freelance recipe developer? Whether you'd like to show off your product in a set of foolproof recipes, add exciting plant-based options to your menu, or produce custom content for your website or social media, I can work with you to create something unique!

With nearly a decade of recipe development experience, there’s nowhere I feel more at home than the kitchen. My recipes are thoroughly researched, meticulously tested, and clearly communicated through precise ingredient measurements and thoughtful instructions. I specialize in vegan and vegetarian cooking, and love to support sustainability-focused individuals/businesses who keep the health of the planet and its people in mind.

My recipes have been featured in cookbooks as well as websites like The Kitchn, Food52, Refinery 29, and mindbodygreen. I also have extensive experience working with branded products, such as So Delicious Dairy Free, Miha, North Coast, and Goat Cheeses of France.
