I’m Ashley Covelli, a food writer, recipe developer, and photographer. My legitimately tiny kitchen is located in Ossining, New York- a short train ride from NYC. My professional background is in graphic design + fine art, and I bring that aesthetic to my culinary creations.
Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen began its life in August 2006 as my creative outlet after a long day at the office. I enjoy cooking from a wide array of ethnic cuisines and will go out of my way to try using ingredients I haven’t previously enjoyed. While I am always up for good challenge in the kitchen, I recognize the necessity for quick and easy meals as well. My family rates every recipe that I prepare on a scale of 1-5 stars, with 5 earning the coveted “wow” tag. If a recipe doesn’t turn out well, I include notes on what I think went wrong and what could be done to improve results next time. My readers have found it helpful to see both the successes and (occasional) failures.
I’m passionate about preparing healthy meals for my family, creating eclectic cocktail and dinner party menus, and making unforgettable desserts. My goal is to encourage people to cook delicious food at home no matter what their limitations, dietary or otherwise, may be.
In August 2015 I launched Big Flavors from a Restaurant Kitchen, a new series which showcases restaurant recipes that can be made at home as well as interviews with the chefs behind the recipes.
I have developed unique, cohesive content for clients such as Stonyfield Organic, General Mills, Honey Maid, Bob’s Red Mill, JCPenney, Sara Lee Desserts, Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q, Tyson Foods Inc., Mars Ice Cream, Nature’s Path Foods, Wayfair, and Vintage Seltzer.
My work has been featured on Foodgawker, Tastespotting, Huffington Post Taste, Sweet Dreams Magazine, FeedFeed, and Foodista.
