Twelve Menus of Christmas COOKBOOK

- Heading Text

‘Tis the Season to celebrate with incredibly tasty food from our US & UK kitchens! Jane and I are sharing family recipes, stories, traditions and invite you to pull up a chair, call your family and friends, and cook up a delicious feast for your loved ones!

Hey there, I'm Lisa!

I’m a California girl living in the PNW, wife, mom, empty nester, lover of coffee, sunshine, reality TV and long walks with my rescue pup.


By day, I test recipes, create videos and take photos, and then write up flavorful elevated recipes for A Menu for You. And, by night, I’m one half of Foodies Across the Pond, cookbook author and podcast host with my amazing friend, Jane.


Phew….my plate is full, but I can’t imagine life any other way!
