My Story

Hi, I'm Stacey, a Midwest foodie. My little friend and sous chef is Pepé le Chef. Pepé isn't really much help, but he and the rest of the crew are always up for a challenge and a laugh. I hope to have a wide variety of recipes for all cooking levels, and some entertaining stories to keep you engaged.

I'm also a self employed graphic designer with over 30 years experience, lover of traveling the globe, artist and gardener when I have time.

I hope you enjoy your visit and come back often.

Cheers! 🙂

The rest of the crew


Pepé le Chef

Pepé is my sous chef and comic relief. He doesn't always help as much as he should, but his sarcastic humor keeps me laughing. He and Claude are good friends, but both will fight for attention every chance they get.


Claude Beaujolais

Claude is our resident Wine guy and overall lush in charge. He's always up for a party and serving up drinks, but he's never available when it comes time to clean up after the party. He thinks he's above that, but we're working on improving that.

Le Chat1

Le Chat - Ginger

The other red head in the house. She's the standard issue kitty with the super cute package upgrade. We forgot to add the fun kitty upgrade because she is super boring and lazy most of the time, but we love her.


My Hubby

My husband hates to have his photo taken because his father was a professional photographer and took his picture a lot, so this is what I get most of the time. That said, he is also a really good cook and even has his own recipes as well as a super palate for tasting... And he just learned how to brew his own beer.
