kitchen witch

The kitchen has always been a magical place to me and I consider myself a kitchen witch. When I was little my mother used to have us be her A.C. (Assistant Cook) and we were always elated to be chosen. I still play with my food and keep that kitchen magic alive. Check out the recipes I'm currently brewing up in the kitchen.

I’m drea, YOUR NEW creative FRIEND

"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful, that will be my life." - Unknown

I have a highly sensitive soul with an artistic eye and a passionate need to create beautiful things. SimplyDre is my work of heart. At the core of everything I do is the desire to connect through our shared stories. Rather it is a recipe from my family to yours, a blog post about personal growth or an expressive visual narrative, stories are the soul of my work. Let's connect and invite closeness so we can live a more intentional life filled with things that make us feel open-hearted and alive.
