Hola! My name is Vanessa, and I am the writer, easy tips collector, sometimes baker, aspiring photographer and eater-in-chief behind Smart Little Cookie. I am a proud Latina, born and raised in the Dominican Republic, who came to the U.S. at the young age of 14. I live in Northern New Jersey with my husband and two kids. My family and I moved here in 2017 after a blissful year living in sunny South Florida. But our hearts belong to New York City, where we lived for almost 20 years.
I’m a working mom, whose love for food led me to start a blog, with the purpose of sharing delicious, quick and easy recipes with busy working moms like myself. I believe that cooking should be fun, but quick and fuss-free to have more time to share and enjoy with those we love. You don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen to put great, tasty food on the table. When I’m not working or cooking, I like to watch movies, read and spend time out around town with the family.
Here on Smart Little Cookie, you’ll find quick and easy recipes for working moms and dads, who love food but don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.
Each week, you’ll get tasty new recipes, that are simple and delicious! I’ll help you save time with tips and tricks that will help you to prepare incredible, time-saving meals that you can enjoy with your family.
