Hannah vegan food recipe creator

I’ve been looking for someone to help me create more recipes & content for my website Simply Plant Based Kitchen. It took me a while to find the right person because I’m pretty picky with recipe requirements.

Recipes must be whole food plant-based, oil-free, simple, and most importantly DELICIOUS!

There aren’t a ton of vegan recipe developers out there who are familiar with the strict requirements of our WFPB world. So finding the perfect person took a while.

But I did!

And I do believe in fate, destiny, and kismet. Nothing is a coincidence.

Because I found her through Chef AJ!

How I Met Hannah

The last time I was on Chef AJ’s show, she asked if I knew Hannah, a friend of hers who lived in Austin. I said no, but I would love to meet her!

We went to lunch together at Casa De Luz – GREAT whole food plant-based restaurant in Austin – just to meet & chat. I mentioned that I was getting super busy with creating content and really needed to find someone to help me.

Hannah says, “I’m a recipe developer. That’s what I do!”

OMG I got goosebumps. I couldn’t believe it. It was meant to be.

I knew that Hannah was a food photographer and she had done all the photography for Chef AJ’s cookbooks, but didn’t know that she also did recipe development. And knowing she’s worked with Chef AJ, I knew she understand the WFPB world and specifications.

Plus, if you’ve seen Chef AJ’s cookbooks, like her new one Sweet Indulgence coming out in August 2024, you KNOW how beautiful the photography is!
