Boozy Dessert Fanatic

A native New Yorker, Susan loves stepping into her little red kitchen to develop seasonal recipes with a number of ingredients that were sourced locally. Eventually some of that development turned to mixology and she realized cooking is even more fun with a cocktail in hand and a little something extra in your dessert! Completely self-taught from a family of cooking enthusiasts , she writes about seasonal healthy dinners, craft cocktails and decadent desserts at The Girl In the Little Red Kitchen. In her free time, Susan watches too much television with her husband in their Brooklyn apartment and spoils her adorable pug.
