about the author

Jennifer Brown

Jennifer Brown is a matrimonial attorney in New York City. Cooking has always been a passion for Jennifer, but when the pandemic hit and her legal work slowed to a near halt, cooking became more than a side project; it became the biggest part of her daily life. With delivery options being limited and expensive, cooking daily for herself and her fiancé, Bryan, became a necessity. But it was also her way of keeping busy and sane during quarantine. While posting regular food photos and recipes on Facebook and Instagram, people started asking for a book of all the recipes, so Jennifer created this labor of love, and plans to follow this book up with more in the future.

Jennifer lives in New York City with her fiancé, Bryan, and their dog, Gigi, and cat, Mimi.
