Brooklyn Supper aims to make great cooking accessible to everyone. We emphasize seasonal, sustainable ingredients lovingly prepared and simply presented. Because cooking and eating should be a joy and not a burden, we favor unfussy recipes, a flexible approach to ingredients that focuses on local ingredients but allows exceptions, and meals that are at once delicious and affordable. About Elizabeth
We have been chronicling our passion for simple, seasonal recipes on Brooklyn Supper since 2008. After almost a decade in Brooklyn, we recently moved with our family to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, where we live happily near the farmers and producers that inspire our work. Elizabeth is a regular contributor to Conde Nast Traveler, Handmade Charlotte, and Food52, where she writes the Salad Days column. Her work has also appeared in print in Vegetarian Times magazine.
What’s Cooking Good Looking is all about nourishing yourself in the most delicious way possible with wholesome ingredients, and simple, clean, veggie-focused recipes. About Jodi
I’m a trained natural foods chef turned blogger, food photographer, and cookbook author. I’m enthusiastic about healthy living, cookbook collecting, really good (homemade) pie, and showing people that vegetables can play a main role on the plate. I live in NYC where I teach cooking classes occasionally and throw dinner parties often. When I’m not in the kitchen, I can be found riding my bike or wandering the streets of New York with my two loves: my sweet dog, Bayley, and my husband, Michael.
Flourishing Foodie is a blog dedicated to the enjoyment and celebration of good food. On the site, you will find original recipes, photography, and personal anecdotes from my life. The recipes are a representation of my personal tastes, the seasonality of food, and the mood I’m feeling that particular week. The blog has a wide variety of foods, from triple layer chocolate cake with salted buttercream frosting, to crispy bbq tempeh caesar salad wraps, to loaded cheesy curly fries. I strive to make things that are bright, colorful, appealing to the eye, and above all, delicious. About Heather
I am a food-loving enthusiast who spends most of her free time developing recipes and photographing food. Although I’m originally from Southern Ontario, I’ve always been drawn to the Pacific Northwest, so five years ago I decided to move to Seattle. The food scene here is incredible, and it’s where I gather a lot of inspiration for my recipes. When I don’t have my apron on and camera in tow, I now spend my days skiing in the winter, hiking/camping/exploring in the summer, and working as a registered dietitian.
I focus on eating seasonally and maintaining a good balance between healthy and indulgent recipes. Living in Vermont has given me a newfound appreciation for the way of life I took for granted growing up in New York—supporting your community, slowing down, and eating close to home. I strive to bring that mindset to much of what I do, both online and in real life. About Carey
I am an ex-picky eater and recovering nine-to-five’r currently living in Burlington, Vermont, with still-strong ties to my hometown in rural upstate New York. My home-home and present home instilled and reawakened my appreciation for farmers’ markets and seasonal eats (which spent nearly a decade muted by the bad frozen pizza and endless takeout of college and post-college life). I love food that comes with a story, eating with my hands, and treating every party like a potluck.
The Crepes of Wrath (and me, the author) have a wide variety of tastes and preferences which lend themselves well to cooking varied, interesting food while still striving to be approachable and fun. You won’t find anything on here that hasn’t been consumed by me, my husband, and/or my hungry co-workers. Within, you’ll find everything from miso osso buco and runny egg sandwiches, to s’mores cinnamon rolls. About Sydney
I live in Brooklyn, New York, and loves memes, eating, cooking, and baking in that order. I watch TV and movies like it’s my job, but I also has a real life and grown up job, so blogging must be done by night and on the weekends. Things can get a little hectic, but I like them that way—as long as there’s plenty of snacks, strong coffee, and a bottle of bourbon within reach.
Two Red Bowls began as a simple way to document the little joys of learning how to cook in a small household. The blog often reflects a love for Asian and Southern food (and sometimes both together), but most of all, it is dedicated to the idea that any food that tastes good is worth celebrating, whether it’s in two plastic cereal bowls on the couch or laid out in a Thanksgiving feast. About Cynthia
I’m a junior lawyer working in Manhattan and living in Brooklyn, New York. When I’m not lawyering, you can find me in my tiny kitchen, cooking, baking, and most often, eating. “Bowl #2” is my fiancé, trusted taste-tester, and the original owner of the two red bowls.
