My Guy! Stan is In The Kitchen’s Sous Chef for Livestream Cooking Sessions. 
When he’s not cooking alongside Regina, Stan is an Administrator for a healthcare organization and also a Project Manager for a Nevada based design and management firm. 

He makes me laugh, he’s my make-up artist, he drives me all over town and out of town. He’s the cameraman and technical support. On my clinic days, he’s my back rubber, my sitter through infusions, my tear-wiper, prayer warrior, head annointer, and battle-ready soldier. Thirty-six+ years and I love you dearly.

Lia Turcotte is originally from Seattle, Washington and attended the Seattle Culinary Academy and Le Cordon Bleu for her training. She started her career alongside her father in their family's Greek bakery and later as the pastry chef for restaurants, wedding cake, chocolatier and pâtisserie shops in Ottawa, Canada. 

I met Lia in 1995-ish at Seattle Culinary Academy. We sat next to one another, I believe in the front row. Two years later we both graduated. As time moved on, so did we. Establishing careers, families, homes and experiences. Many years later Lia reached out to me via IG. What a surprisingly awesome reconnect. 

Lia is a friend, colleague, a calming voice, a gentle spirit, she’s been my go-to for all things baking and my sounding board when I need to make sense of things. Thank you Chef Lia, xo.

My Favorite Recipes are:

As much as I enjoy cooking, and have a passion for all things food and kitchen related, that doesn't mean that I want to spend hours in the kitchen making meals, nor cleaning tons of dishes (in my case, bowls). However, there are many days into evenings when I can get lost in my kitchen with spontaneous cooking projects or just testing recipes for hours upon hours several hours later.

What Types of Recipes will You Find on My Website?

Please journey with us as we have fun discovering new ways in which to nourish our bodies and organize our lives In The Kitchen.

There are a few recipes, which I absolutely crave, that are full of deliciousness and take a little more time to prepare and ingredients that are indigenous to a particular region. I will note that they are ‘advanced’.

In my recipes, I strive to use health-conscious shortcuts that save time, but won’t compromise the flavor of the dish. I only share the very best recipes that my husband and I truly love and often eat on a regular basis. Every recipe has been tested multiple times before they are [qualifying to make the] blog worthy. You can trust that they are reliable and very delicious.

Making wholesome food choices is easier said than done. While my husband and I transition to an even healthier and cleaner lifestyle, I will share tips, techniques, hacks, and how-to's as they are developed, as well as trends and related articles from various food sites to assist you with tools, equipment, ingredients, cleaning and organizing your kitchen and home.
