About Me

Hey, I’m Orlie, and welcome to my kitchen. Growing up, I enjoyed being in the kitchen and helping my mom cook. From the very first time I held a whisk to baking my first cake, I instantly fell in love. It wasn’t long until I started doing all the baking. Watching my family and friends gush over how mouthwatering my desserts were is what got me hooked.

I’m from South Florida, and I’ve lived here for most of my life. My biggest supporter, and also the photographer of Orlie’s Kitchen is my husband, Eli. He’s also my guinea pig. I can’t forget about my pup, Bruce! He always tries to help in the kitchen, but he tends to leave when I’m using chocolate. Who can blame him?

My recipes are simple enough that even someone who has little to no baking experience can make my delicious desserts. Also, my recipes are compatible with most dietary restrictions. I come from a kosher home, which means I don’t eat dairy for 3-6 hours after eating meat or poultry. That being said, I don’t want to limit myself and my family to not having dessert, so I make sure my recipes have parve (dairy-free) options. I also have quite a few gluten-free people in my life, so you’ll find most of my recipes have gluten-free options as well.

I specialize in cookies, brownies, and ice cream. They’re all so versatile, and once you master these three, you can accomplish anything.
