About Kelli

Hello and welcome!  I’m so glad you’re here!

I’m Kelli Dunn, a 30-something gal living in New York City, trying my very hardest to find balance between clean eating and indulging my very persistent sweet tooth, while maintaining an active lifestyle.

I’m passionate about creating and sharing seasonal, fresh, accessible recipes.  While I love to cook, I recognize that not everyone feels at home in the kitchen….I hope to make cooking feel a little less intimidating, very approachable and fun for you!

There’s a serious soft spot in my heart for oysters, ice cream & farmer’s markets, and my day cannot begin without a large mug of coffee (just a splash of cream, please).

I love triathlon, travel and getting lost in a good book.

When I started blogging in 2010 I was cooking in an unbelievably tiny kitchen, nestled in the corner of my NYC apartment – hence, The Corner Kitchen.  It couldn’t have been more than 8 square feet.  I wish I was exaggerating…but I’m not.  If only you could have seen it!  There was limited counter space and storage, a tiny stove and refrigerator, a bar-size sink and I had to wash my stock pots in the bath tub.  I got very creative and was determined to make it work!

Thankfully, my kitchen has gotten bigger over the past few years.  I even have a dishwasher now!

In 2011, I followed my passion for cooking to the renowned French Culinary Institute (now, The International Culinary Center) in New York City and graduated from the Classic Culinary Arts Program.  It was easily one of the most intense and rewarding experiences of my life — and one that completely reaffirmed my love of being in the kitchen.
