About Rachel

The Domestic Diva



Raised in Dayton, OH, Rachel grew up with a love for preparing and creating food. She learned from her mother, father, and grandmother and always knew she wanted to share her love of food with others. During college she ran a snack shop out of her dorm room, helping to provide others with food. Following her graduation from Florida A&M University (twice), she won a business grant with 100 Urban Entrepreneurs and started an online bakery, Sunny Days Bakery.

After marriage and a daughter, Rachel returned to Dayton, OH with her family. She currently works as an educator with Dayton Public Schools, works with the family catering company All Things Savory Catering, and serves as President/CEO of Butter, Baking, & Bacon. She is known as The Domestic Diva and can be seen cooking live on the  Living Dayton TV show.

As wedding gifts for their guests, Rachel and Michael gave mini jars of the original seasoning blend. They were a hit, with requests for more coming from several people from several states. After making bottles for friends and family, the seasoning blends are now being offered to all! And why not? Every table should have a meal that is both simple and savory.

A Tradition of Taste


We founded Simply Savory by Rachel on our love of quality food and our passion for local business. Using our experience in our local food communities, we are able to curate a seasonal selection for our customers, along with our basic line of seasoning blends.
