Welcome to Couch Potato Cook!


Hi! My name is Mallory. I’m a professional journalist in Los Angeles by trade and food blogger on the side. I currently write podcasts at Spotify and I was an editor at Bustle for five years. I love food, so naturally, I love to blend the two in my writing — hence I founded Couch Potato Cook in 2013 as a blog. In 2014, it primarily moved to Instagram.

I’m no expert on cuisine — just think of me as that friend who’s always talking about where to eat and what to watch.

I’ve been writing professionally for over a decade, writing and editing for major media outlets (BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Bustle, New York Daily News etc.) and covering sports, entertainment, real estate, food, and internet culture. I was a contributor to The Daily Meal. I used to write the weekly food truck feature on I’ve also produced and edited more than 200 videos on the Couch Potato Cook YouTube channel.

(For my formal resume and credentials for freelance writing, please visit my professional website.)

Come along on the journey and let’s eat.
