Welcome to A Menu for you!

I’m Lisa, a recipe creator, food photographer, and empty nester living in the PNW.  You’ll find recipes, travel and life sprinkled throughout, and I hope you also find your new favorite recipes!


There are 500 seasonal recipes to inspire you and get you excited to cook for your loved ones.

Not sure what you’re craving? Here are some popular categories to get you inspired!

If you’re new here, I’ve written a cookbook with my amazing friend, Jane.  We each have our separate businesses (I have A Menu for You and Jane has Myrtle’s Kitchen), and together we created Foodies Across the Pond.  


We have a weekly podcast, Foodie Friends (available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify) and have self published two cookbooks.  



The Foodies Table is our second cookbook and we’re so excited it’s finally available!! It has over 200 recipes and combines recipes from both our kitchens.  You’ll find everything from afternoon tea recipes, to bbq recipes, to potluck parties and fancy dinner parties.  


We created this book because one of our absolute favorite things to do is cook for the people we love.  We hope you’ll cook from our book, invite your loved ones over, and create amazing memories around your table! 

When it needs to be quick

No time to cook? No problem! 

In a hurry? You’ll love these recipes you can make in under 30 minutes!

Planning the main course is one thing, but don’t forget about planning a tasty side dish, too!

Perfect for when you’re hungry, but not TOO hungry.  Or if you’re going to a Summer party and need ideas on what to bring.

I'm so excited you're here!

I'm Lisa!

By day, I'm a food blogger and food photographer. 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!

Have you heard the news?

Season Two of foodie friends is here!

Jane and I started our podcast last year and are having the best time interviewing other food creators, food bloggers, and foodies.  We also chat about life as women over 50, empty nesting, starting a business and women’s health issues. 


A BIG thank you to everyone who’s listened, downloaded, shared, rated and reviewed!
