Hi. My name is Amreen! I was born and raised in New Orleans but shifted gears to Chitown in my childhood. I currently live on green tea lattes, I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to coffee, sprinkled donuts have me rolling in euphoria, and I LOVE potatoes. Frankly speaking I have a sick obsession with them. I can eat french fries, baked potatoes, and hash browns every single day and I’m NOT ashamed; one of the reasons for the term Mashed.
Unfortunately, I won’t be sharing any stories of me quitting my job and starting my blog but people who do that are seriously so amazing for pursing their dreams full time. I love my job as an Analyst but I also love making food for my loved ones and friends. My love for food started with a children’s book series known as the Chef Girls. My friends and I started a cooking club in middle school inspired by the books. I know we did it as a hobby when we were little but the joy I got from cooking as a kid carried into my 20s and here I am!
