Hi, I'm Lizz and I'm an adult...mostly. A tech-based marketer and writer by day, I'm an unsupervised, kitchen-clueless home chef by night. Whether experimenting with great grandma's recipes or attempting the latest internet food fad, I'm in my happy place. The kitchen, and life in general, are a little chaotic and I share the mess as much as the success.

Cooking is my passion and what I enjoy even more is teaching others how to cook! My Lebanese heritage plays a huge role in my love for cooking. My recipes incorporate so many diversified cuisines as I've lived in West Africa and now here in the states. My love for good knives is credited to my mother. She comes from a family of butchers. Cutco is my favorite set of knives, I use them every day.

I love my family, my town and all things grilled! If I'm not playing with my kids you can find me in the kitchen or behind the grill. Good food makes you feel good and brings people together so why not get cookin'?

I am a home chef in Washington, D.C. In October 2020, I started my cooking journey on Instagram by making every recipe from Dessert Person by Claire Saffitz, later adding Cook This Book by Molly Baz to the rotation. I love cooking for my friends, family and coworkers, and am also part of a local cookbook club in the city. I am excited to complete every recipe in my current cookbooks, and am looking forward to the next books ahead!

Hello! Yasou! I wanted to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. My name is Helene. I’m a Greek -American mother and wife.

After college I became a flight attendant for 14 years but now I’m a stay-at-home mom. Our family is in the restaurant business so we appreciate quality food! Greek cooking has become a surprise hobby of mine which has brought a lot of happiness and, in turn I love sharing my recipes, pictures and demos with everyone.

I am a self-made barbecue addict. Preparing meals with fire and smoke is my passion. I started getting into it about 10 years ago, always working to do something better and different each time I fired up the smoker. Barbecue is more than just cooking something. Each time I cook I put my heart into it. I have competed in many barbecue competitions and won several awards, but at the end of the day my favorite is cooking for friends and family. Barbecue is my love, made visible by the smiles on people's faces when they eat something I prepare. That is what really matters.
