Natalie Reebel, Recipe Tester
A list of all the recipes Natalie Reebel has tested.
Natalie Reebel grew up in southern California in a home that put fusion on the dinner table long before restaurants "invented" it. Her maternal grandparents were from Italy, her paternal grandmother from Mexico, and her family would seek out German, Asian, and Scandinavian cuisines at restaurants. Despite having such an early and expansive exposure to food, Reebel didn't learn to cook until she got married. She soon found spending time in the kitchen to be a joy and stress-reliever. She even started a home-based cheesecake factory, although she quickly realized that she had too many plates in the air to keep that going. Reebel currently teaches a high school culinary arts class in southern Oregon, sharing her philosophy of eating with your family, keeping food simple, avoiding processed foods as much as possible, and supporting local producers.
Easy, authentic, and awesome any time of day, whether accompanied by steaming hot coffee or cold cerveza.
