About The Author

Natasha Raey

I love seeing the look of shock and disbelief in the eyes of anyone who has known me since before 2012 and has just discovered how much I love to cook now. And I’m a girl who will give credit where credit is due – my boyfriend, Tyler is definitely the impetus behind my newfound love. When we started dating, I had barely even grocery shopped, let alone cooked a meal. On one of our first dates, he thought it would be a good idea to cook together. So I researched some recipes online, and we went grocery shopping together… and that’s how it went the first few months…and then that morphed into me grocery shopping by myself (oh my!) and planning our dinners. I’m now fully obsessed with searching out new meal ideas and pairings, and I anxiously await my weekly e-mails from Yummly. When I can’t sleep, I grab my phone and check out the newest ideas at marthastewart.com. I am a full-on foodie, and I love it! When I’m not cooking, I can be found working as a senior health administrator. I am also the co-founder of SheTalks Global and work in the medical marijuana industry in operations and branding/ marketing.
