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

      1. Thank you so much for encouraging me to try Whole30! It’s really changed my relationship with food and my life as a whole and I can’t thank you enough for your motivation.

      2. Thank you so much for taking the time to make the comment… I’m delighted for you and I’m assuming you’re already following on Instagram

  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!

    1. Feel free to message me

  15. Are you out of the bowls? I didn’t find it in the store menu…

    1. Yes… They’re a little like getting Hamilton tickets. We’re going to be announcing on the stories when they’re available again. It’s possible will have a short run next week with a few extras and you can direct message me about that

  16. Teri. What brand and where can I find the electric onion slicer. Debbie

    1. Search favorite kitchen chores and is there

    2. I meant to say… Search my post for favorite kitchen tools here on the blog… And I would be delighted if you order through me

  17. How many servings do your dishes typically apply to?

    1. Totally depends on the dish… But I would say for

      1. Awesome, thanks! I will be starting the Whole30 Oct 1 and it will be just me out of coupledom and I am trying to get a fix on the amounts I will need.

      2. 💙💙💙

    2. four not for

      1. Do you know if Gapers still shows at Taste of Chicago?

      2. i don’t think so

  18. Teri, I saw that Myleik recommended you over on Instagram, and after seeing your recipes, I’m hooked. Everything you cook looks amazing and so easy to make. I plan to cook several recipes from your blog this week. I can’t wait.

  19. Hi Terri:
    I wasn’t sure where to post and ask this question but wanted your feedback and opinion. Your favorite places to dine in Chicago? Steak? Whole 30/Paleo/Gluten conscious eaters. You have such fabulous taste I feel your recommendations would be spot on.

  20. Hi ! New subscriber here! I’m so excited to find you. May I ask if all of your recipes are whole 30 friendly?

  21. Is three days marinating in the refrigerator too long for the heroine chicken? I thought the longer the better marinating, because I wasn’t able to cook it after 48 hours. Now I googled marinating chicken and the internet says no longer than 1- 2 days. What should I do, cook it today or throw it out?

  22. Hi Teri,
    I am trying your salad recipe, Spring Greens with Salami Croutons. The recipe calls for 1TBS + 1 tsp kosher salt. I put the teaspoon in the dressing, but I do not find where the tablespoon is used. Is it for blanching the peas?
    Thank you,

  23. I am new to your blog, but sold already!
    Also have been obsessing over your marinade bowls, would love to enter your contest.
    Thanks, and looking forward to lots more from you!

    1. Thanks for sharing!

    2. So happy to have you here! contests are announced on stories or instagram posts, keep an eye out!

  24. I love your cookbook so much and your online recipes are gorgeous and inspiring! My absolute favorite is the oatcakes! I have gotten creative and made them multiple ways but recently I added vanilla whey and added a cinnamon swirl while they were cooking. It was soooo amazing! Kind of like a healthy cinnamon roll. Even used Greek yogurt as icing. My kids were thrilled! Thanks for inspiring me to rethink how to make yummy food healthy!

  25. I like your yamy food ex chef\pastry chef, Palm Beach

  26. I love your recipes and have been making them for awhile now. My 15 year old son isn’t a fan of eggs, so a nicer breakfast is difficult. But if he can’t taste the “egg taste” he will eat it. Any ideas to help me?? He loves all the veggies, cresses, meats, just not the eggs.
    I’d love some ideas!!

    1. Well this is easy for me to answer because I’ve recently started feeling the same way about eggs. My best advice is every day at dinner make an extra portion for him and for breakfast he can have dinner. I like to have mine on top of breakfast Greens served topped with Marinated Onion oil. Also some thing I like to make a lot for breakfast is breakfast burgers. I spice them all up with lots of good stuff. i serve of them on a bed of greens drizzled with my marinated onion oil and I add avocados to the top. Also what about soup. Make my rotisserie soup or Italian wedding soup and he can have soup in the morning. It’s very easy to heat up a bowl. Smoothies are lovely in the morning also. Also it’s time to get him cooking because when he makes what he eats it’s going to be much more satisfying… Feel free to direct message me anytime on Instagram

  27. Teri,
    Great job on your Pinterest Live session! I watched a few of them but thought yours was the best. Good technical work. Loved your helpers and all the ideas you presented. I started following your blog and look forwarded to learning more from you!

  28. So happy to have found you and your recipes! Also, in your photo, what is that oven type thing behind you mid-wall? Thanks!!

    1. It’s like a salamander it’s a restaurant style broiler
