Retro Dinner Diva is resurrecting comfort food and the quintessential American casserole with a fresher, healthier approach. Our hope is to instill some nostalgia in each meal we deliver and bring to mind a simpler time of milkman deliveries, porch swings, lemonade stands, and families that shared dinnertime together.
Each of our casseroles and meals are made from scratch (no canned soups ) with homemade sauces and seasonings and as many fresh, locally sourced ingredients as possible. They arrive fresh and ready to simply put in your oven.
ABOUT OUR OWNER & CHIEF CASSEROLE DIVA
Hi, I'm Stephanie. My fascination with food began many moons ago with my first Easy Bake Oven. Some of my best childhood memories were spending summers on my Grandma Margie's farm. We would rise at the crack of dawn with the rooster and I'd help my grandpa in the garden all day and giggle when he dunked me in the rain barrels. I'd pick fresh vegetables and fruits to take to my grandma and then help snap green beans and peel potatoes for a big family dinner. It was good ol' comfort food but it was always from scratch made with fresh bounty from the earth and lots of love. And that's what I hope to recreate with Retro Dinner Diva.
I was fortunate to come from a wonderful family of cooks and would often be underfoot in the kitchen helping my Grandma Mammy cut homemade noodles or my mom make homemade ice cream out of snow the year we lived in a log cabin or watching my dad whip up his newest gourmet concoction.
So, it was obvious I would go out and spend 15+ years in the.............corporate world. <record scratch> Sometimes the obvious life choices are hiding in plain sight, eh? I am so thankful for all the remarkable people I've met and experiences I've had throughout my career. But, here I am now......taking a huge leap of faith in launching Retro Dinner Diva. While my mom, dad, and grandmas have passed on, their memories still live on in me. I'm excited and looking forward to bringing my love of food, cooking, and family to you and helping more families share dinnertime together.
