Nicole McQuade is the photographer.
Judi Cutrone is the writer.
They once worked together in the West Loop of Chicago. They cook, then Nicole mans the camera, Judi mans the laptop and they both get to eat what they’ve made.
About the Recipes
We read a lot of magazines and are big fans of food blogs. We will always name our sources for recipes that did not originally belong to us and we are happy to point you in their direction so you can become as big a fan of them as we are- there’s enough blogosphere for all of us. And the more we read, the more we cook and the more we cook, the more we eat and the more we eat, the happier we will all be.
About the Posts
Judi spins each recipe into a fictional story. Sometimes just an ingredient is called out, sometimes the whole dish. All of the stories are fictional unless you see “A true story” at the top. That means it really happened.
About The “Smitty & The Girl” Series
We thought it’d be fun to have one long, recurring storyline. That’s Smitty & The Girl. That page at the top will always be updated with the latest “episode” so if you’ve missed a few, just scroll down and pick up where you left off.
