Hi, it's nice to meet you! My name is Emily. Welcome to Resplendent Kitchen, my little corner of the internet.
I'm the author, creator, and photographer behind Resplendent Kitchen. What started as a casual hobby as a creative outlet for weekends while working as a Registered Nurse has now grown into a business with fun vegan recipes each month that I love to create and share!
I live in Tucson, Arizona, with my husband and two cats, Milo and Oreo, who I adopted from former co-workers. Many thanks to my husband for all he does as the dishwasher and recipe tester, for I couldn't do what I do without him.
My favorite things are cats (I love dogs too!), fall weather in Tucson, drives up Mount Lemmon to have lunch, and a big bowl of pasta.
I've been vegan since 2016 after watching the Forks over Knives documentary and reading the book How Not to Die. My husband went vegan along with me and subsequently lost fifty excess pounds; we've now been vegan for over five years.
After becoming vegan for all of the reasons, I took an online plant-based cooking course that piqued my interest in food photography since I had to photograph the dishes I made. Fast forward to several years later, after which I rediscovered a passion for food photography and creating recipes and founded Resplendent Kitchen!
I am here to show you how to make delicious vegan recipes that will nourish you. You will find tasty, easy-to-make plant-based dishes here, ranging from healthy and straightforward to swoon-worthy and worth the time!
When I'm not making my next batch of sourdough or exploring Tucson, you can find me planning our next trip or our next meal. I have planned vacations around restaurants. We've been to the Caribbean, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
