My name is Jeniree Vasquez-Simmons. Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. life has since taken me in different directions: Washington D.C., Tijuana, Mexico, San Diego, California and finally New York.

My love for cooking didn’t start until after I arrived to the U.S., and I longed for the dishes and flavors that I was accustomed to. So, armed with an internet connection, some basic kitchen tools and tons of YouTube tutorials, I learned not only that I love cooking but that little by little I developed a talent and understanding of various cooking techniques.

My goal for this site is to share some of my greatest passions: food, wine, coffee, film, fashion and my new role as a mommy.  Hopefully we can find some common ground, share some recipes and explore new tastes.  Thanks for joining me!
