Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I'm Nicole, the recipe developer and creator of Fresh Apron. I live just outside of Boston with my longtime partner, John, and our cat, Juliet. You’ll quickly learn that I have a passion for all things food and cooking. Especially bright, colorful meals!
My goal with Fresh Apron is to share every day recipes that you’ll enjoy making and love eating! I’m hoping this inspires you to make something new and experiment with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

A Little Background
I grew up eating well balanced meals (which sometimes started with dessert first!). My mom was always in the kitchen cooking or baking. So naturally, I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember!
After college, I really started to get creative in the kitchen, experimenting with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. This is when I learned that cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming, and that’s how this blog came to be!
Fun Fact: We have been container gardening on our patio for years. Since we live right outside of Boston, space is at a premium. We’ve found that we can grow tons of fresh produce from Spring through Fall. Some of the things we grow include spinach, kale, cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, green onions, carrots, and sugar snap peas. As well as fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, parsley, and dill.
I have been featured on websites like Foodgawker and Trivet Recipes. I've also created recipes for brands like Wyman’s and Pederson’s Farms.
