My friends call me “The Kitchen Goddess” and what could be better than that? I love cooking for my family and friends, and filling my life with food-related adventures, including cooking, writing, researching, appreciating, photographing and talking about food. I’m a Master Collaborator, Blogger, Food Columnist, regular contributor to Whole30 and editor @thefeedfeed.

I love to create alchemy and inspire others to do it too: the devotion and intention in the cooking infuses friends and family with love on holidays and every day. Alchemy happens when food is served with love—it is magically transformed. Food + Love = Healing.

    Yes, you have always been my inspiration when it comes to food, family and love. I miss the regular invites to your kitchen when I lived down the street. But now that I live 6 hours away and am our family’s aspiring “kitchen goddess-to-be”, I am grateful for all I learned from watching you. I no longer fear the magic of the kitchen, but am embracing it with modestly wonderful results. I am so glad to find your site and to begin following the alchemy of your kitchen magic. Thank you.

    1. What a beautiful comment and such music to my ears, my old friend!

  3. Teri, I find your recipes are inspirational – you make it easy to create an amazing meal! The photography also inspires me, and let me just say, Teri is living out her vision — Food + Love = Healing is true! Love goes into every recipe she shares, love goes into every meal she creates and one feels a sense of belonging, a sense of comfort, a sense of caring from the meal created. I just said to a friend tonight, there’s something really special about how we can show each other love through meals we create – the time, the attention to detail and the amazing gift of putting oneself fully into the service of serving an incredible meal!

    1. Thanks Lisa! what a beautiful comment! I love creating food to express my love for my friends and family!

  4. Great recipes, keep going Teri, can’t wait for your next delicious ideas!

  5. Hello, Teri! I just discovered you on Instagram last night and am in AWE of your delicious food recipes, beautiful photos, and warmth + wit, too. I am on my last week of my first Whole30, a total foodie and have been logging my food images on this journey at #whole30approved, #whole30recipes and #whole30BOWLD and I just gotta say, I was thinking my photos were pretty good but yours put mine to shame, girl! Keep on cooking + serving up delicious images and words for all of us to enjoy, I appreciate you and your journey. And P.S., I have never felt compelled to reply to someone’s blog before. Well done you. Cheers, Cindy

    1. Cindy…that is the loveliest comment ever. I’m really passionate about what I do and love it so much and makes it so worth it to get a note like this. It’s fun to be a part of your journey. We have so much fun on the Instagram and I hope that you will follow along and comment with us! You made my day! xo Teri

  6. Teri,
    I have no words to tell you how much I’ve LOVED this week in whole30 recipes. I started panicking when I realized it is almost Sunday until I remembered I can follow you at nocrumbsleft!!!! Relief!!! Then today I found your website and I read your posts on Paris (my absolute magic place) and I literally cried for joy. YOU are a human treasure and I feel so thankful I have found you. God bless your beautiful soul!

  10. I’m a new member of your page and I must say I am so glad I found you. Your page is so amazingly fun and I just love watching you prepare delicious dishes.

  11. I really enjoyed making the Chicken meatballs with red curry. Do you know what happened to it?

  12. I love all your recipes and Whole 30! I wanted to know what is your preferred type of cookware/pans you like to use? Stainless steel, cast iron, ceramic, and if you ever use non-stick for cooking at all. Thank you!

  13. I love following you and trying so many of your recipes. We’ll be visiting Chicago soon and you went to a trendy new restaurant. Would you please tell me the name? Also, I haven’t received my marinated onion bowl yet. Ordered a while ago. Just checking. Ty, Janet

    1. I would say message me on my Instagram and we can discuss about it… We have bowls going out on Monday and I can look and see if you were in that list… We do say 4 to 5 weeks

    1. Thank you so much for this

    2. thanks for this

  14. Hello! My mom and I are going to Chicago for a girls trip the weekend of the 27th. Would love to hear about Chicago restaurants you recommend. Thanks!
