Hey there! I’m Casey, a food content producer specializing in writing, recipe development, photography, and styling for digital and print media.
Through my smorgasbord of work, I explore the intersection of food and pop culture with humor, clarity, and insight.
My writing, including editorial features and original recipes, has appeared on CNN Travel, The Kitchn, TODAY Food, and Allrecipes Magazine, among other print and online outlets. I’m the founder and editor of the critically acclaimed website Good. Food. Stories., an online magazine that focuses on food from a storyteller’s perspective.
As a recipe developer and photographer/stylist, I’ve worked with national and international brands to create content that’s inspirational as well as user-friendly. (Yes, I will make that Instant Pot beef stew look as irresistible to eat as it was easy to make.)
I am the author of the cookbooks Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food (Gibbs Smith, 2015) and Classic Snacks Made from Scratch: 70 Homemade Versions of Your Favorite Brand-Name Treats (Ulysses Press, 2013), and the co-writer of Inspired Bites: Unexpected Ideas for Entertaining from Pinch Food Design (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2014).
As a visual artist, I create individual hand-drawn illustrations for editorial and corporate clients that reflect the whimsy and weirdness inside my head. From 2016-2019, I was also the founder and creative director of The Casey BarberSHOP, featuring pop culture-inspired gifts and greeting cards.
Oh, and I’m educated! I received my masters degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, and my undergraduate degree in English and visual art/art history from Bucknell University.
I now live in northern New Jersey with my husband, two very helpful assistant cats (Lenny and Bixby), two ukuleles (Beezus and Ramona), and a freezer full of sour cherries.
