About the blog

Commuter Cook is a food blog dedicated to obsessed with helping people get dinner done every night of the work week.


Despite the name, Commuter Cook isn’t just for commuters and people who spend most of the day away from home. Nuh-uh. Commuter Cook caters to anyone who wants to spend less time cooking dinner without sacrificing health or taste (so, umm, basically everybody?). If you:

  • believe that homemade weeknight dinners are indeed possible, even if you’re super busy with work, commuting, family, etc., etc., etc.!

  • think that eating real food is worth the extra time and effort

  • don’t want to rely on weekend meal prep to “survive” the work week

  • make no apologies for throwing money at the problem, taking the occasional short cut or #dinnerfail



What you can expect on Commuter Cook

Commuter Cook is about one thing: dinner. True, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but dinner is the most stressful so that’s where we pitch our tent. Here’s a preview of what you can look forward to:

  1. Dinner recipes (tested or created by me) that are easy, healthy, tasty and FAST across a variety of diets including meatarian, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free
  2. Strategies to simplify your weeknight dinner routine and get organized for the work week, so dinner is all about execution
  3. Tips (lots of ’em!) to help you save time throughout the entire dinnertime process, from planning to shopping, prepping and cooking.

There are three main (food) sections: recipes, meal planning and cooking tips. Beyond the food stuff, you can also expect stories. In the life section, that’s obvious, but storytelling is my jam so I like to tell stories all. tha. time. It’s what I do.


Where to go from here

This blog is more than just about the food. I’m a sharer and I want this space to be about real people figuring out how to get dinner done on a Tuesday. I want to get to know you but I’ll go first—learn more about me here.
