Oh hi! Welcome to Le Petit Eats! I’m so thrilled whenever someone takes a moment to visit me and check out one of my recipes, because bringing people together through food is what brings me the most joy! It’s really why I got into the business of food in the first place.

I own a private chef and boutique catering company called Le Petit Chef. The name is a play on my pint-sized stature. What initially began as a side business quickly evolved into a full time endeavor, and I feel so fortunate to be my own boss and do what I love for a living.

My business and this blog keep me pretty busy, but when I’m not cooking (or eating) I love:

  • Books. Wine. Candles. Bubble baths. Preferably all at once.
  • Kitties! More on that later…
  • Getting outside. Hiking, biking, yoga, sunsets, camping, walking, running, skipping, jumping, etc.
  • Beach days! I’m a Cali girl through and through.


I share my life and home with my husband, John. He keeps me sane and reminds me to breathe/smile/laugh, bless him. We have two cats, Bucatini and Marmalade, and have been known to foster the occasional litter of kittens.



I started my blog as a way to document and share some of my favorite recipes, and the process has been incredibly rewarding. It has allowed me to connect with other food lovers beyond the local reach of my clients, and I have completely fallen in love with the entire process of recipe development, food photography and styling. I am constantly challenged and learning new things every day, and I’m just deeply appreciative of the unique element that these newfound skills have contributed to my brand.

I really hope you enjoy my recipes- sometimes I’ll share things I prepare for clients and catered events, but mostly these are the recipes I enjoy making at home. Dig in!
