I’m Averie Sunshine and I’m so happy you found my site! I began blogging in 2009 as a way to share recipes, and what began as a little hobby, has turned into one of the best things I’ve ever done. Sharing recipes, connecting with readers, making lots of friends along the way, and cooking up a storm has been so much fun. I post new recipes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

My recipes are geared toward real life and the average person who wants fast and easy meals, ready in under 30 minutes, and that taste amazing. You’ll feel proud serving my easy dinners and fuss-free desserts to your family and friends. I use common, everyday ingredients so you won’t be chasing all over town or spending an arm and a leg on specialty groceries.

I was named one of the Ten Best Food Bloggers by the Huffington Post, and my work has appeared in Better Homes and Gardens, Martha Stewart’s Martha’s Circle, Gourmet Live, Glamour and more.

In June 2013, my first cookbook, Peanut Butter Comfort: Recipes for Breakfasts, Brownies, Cakes, Cookies, Candies, and Frozen Treats Featuring America’s Favorite Spread, was released. The accompanying blog post about it is here

In October 2o14, my second cookbook, Cooking with Pumpkin: Recipes That Go Beyond the Piewas released.

I live in San Diego, California and am fortunate to live in such a beautiful, sunny place where the ocean is near and the sky is blue.

When I’m not cooking or taking pictures of the food I create, I love outdoor running, running half marathons, and spending time with my daughter. Please see my FAQs or Press Page for more information.
