Favorite foods: french fries, chocolate cake and salad
Hey y’all! I’m Haley – a Los Angeles based food photographer, videographer, food stylist, and recipe developer. I started Brewing Happiness back in 2014 as a way to work through my complicated feelings about food and my body. Along the way, I’ve found balance, health, and most importantly *happiness*. It’s my hope this website can be a platform for you to do the same.
Before running Brewing Happiness I attended Chapman University where I studied filmmaking and screen acting. I thought I was going to be an actress, but alas life had different (better) plans. I’m much happier playing with food everyday.
These days you can find me over at Salt Worth Creative creating custom photography and videography content for brands!
Favorite foods: pizza, tacos, and curry
I’m Ryan, the official head of Brewing Happiness’ test kitchen. Before joining BH in 2020, I worked in restaurants for 15+ years. I attended Johnson and Wales for culinary school. Since then, I have both worked in well known kitchens like State Road (where I cooked for the Obamas) and Botanica, as well as a private chef.
At Brewing Happiness, I’m excited to take all of my knowledge to help make your kitchen experience easier and more fun.
These days you can find me over at Salt Worth Creative styling food and creating custom recipes for brands!
I just found your meal prep posts and they are amazing!!
Have you done a series or do you have any more recent ones?
I’ve been cycling through 2 of them, haha, I’m obsessed.
They really make my life easier during the work eek.
Thanks so much!
Hi Lisa! I’m so glad you like the guides! Unfortunately I only have the two. Hopefully you can find fun ways to shake those up so you can keep enjoying them.
Hey Haley! I’ve been looking through a lot of “health food” blogs lately, but it is your design format that feeds me the most tranquility and balance– the lifestyle that you adorn, after all. I also love that I see butter and animal meat in your recipes, which many healthy food bloggers have completely restricted. It would be great if you could check out my blog, which provides recipes on traditional Chinese holiday foods and legends. Your work is so inspirational.
I am SO HONORED you like our layout and structure. That means the world to us! I’ll definitely check out your site!xo.

Love your site! It’s so pretty! Just found it today:))
Made your pineapple upside cake for my husbands birthday and he LOVES IT!!! Thank you for such a beautiful site and for being so REAL! You are an inspiration.
Oh my goodness Elizabeth, I couldn’t receive a better compliment! Thank you so much! And tell your hubby happy birthday!!!
Hi there, tried to connect with you on FB but your icons don’t work. Also for the angel food cake recipe – for traditional afc recipes you need to turn the pan upside down to cool ….. did you do this with yours? Thanks
Hey Lisa! I’m so sorry that the buttons didn’t work – I’ll look into that. You can always email me at haley(at)brewinghappiness.com with any questions you have. But, no, I did not flip it to cool. That cake won’t expand to the whole pan, so you run the risk of breaking it if you flip it before cool! Thanks!

I need you to know that the peanut free vegan dog treats have been a saving grace for our sweet boy, Bentley Benjamin. He is allergic to peanuts and we have had a really hard time finding healthy food and treats that are peanut free and are produced in a peanut free facility. Making these at home ensures he’s safe and (BONUS) he loves them! Thank you a million times for sharing this recipe! Our family is grateful!
This makes my heart SO HAPPY to hear. If I can bring one sweet dog joy in this world, then I have done my job! xoxo.
