My name is Danny Lavender and I am the founder of RecipeKarma.com. I grew up on Long Island, a suburb of New York City. From the time I can remember, food was always a big deal in my house. We were one of those family’s that showed love with food. From holiday dinners to backyard BBQ’s, we shared, laughed and occasionally cried together over a big plate of food. I learned so much about life over those delicious meals, they really shaped who I am today. Lessons about character, strength and resolve were many, but those about compassion and caring for others really left an impression on me. RecipeKarma.com is a for profit, purpose driven business.
