Karen is a marketing and branding professional by day and burgeoning cook by night. She is always on the search for the holy grail of quick, healthy and tasty meals that her family will love. When not on quarantine lock-down, she enjoys keeping on top of the Chicago dining scene, checking out live music and theater, and attempting to make at-home versions of her favorite cocktails. She's excited about helping introduce The Chopping Block's new virtual cooking line-up to home cooks in Chicago and beyond.
