 Leah Maroney

Leah Maroney has been experimenting with recipes in the kitchen since she could walk. A lover of all things breakfast related, she truly enjoys sharing her passion for food by cooking homemade meals for those she loves. 


  • 7 years of experience developing and writing recipes
  • Published 300+ recipes on The Spruce Eats
  • Teaches cooking classes in her community


Leah has spent over seven years developing and writing recipes, four of which have been for The Spruce Eats. While her love of cooking started at a young age, her passion for food, recipes, and cooking techniques flourished when she was in college at Marist; a two-mile jaunt from the Culinary Institute of America. It was this close proximity to the well renowned culinary school that inspired Leah to study abroad in Florence, Italy, where she trained in Italian and Middle Eastern Cuisine at Scuola Lorenzo de’Medici.

Over the years, she has enhanced her skills in the kitchen by catering private parties and leading cooking classes. 

When she isn't writing for The Spruce Eats, you can find Leah on her blog, Mini Pie.



  • Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Special Education from Marist College
