A Couple of Cooks

Welcome to Chez Maggie & Jeff, a blog about cooking memorable meals for any occasion. From a knock-your-socks-off date-night dinner to a what the heck do I do with these leftovers lunch, we've got a lot of delectable recipes to share.

My husband and I love to cook and entertain and devote a fair amount of time to thinking about, planning, preparing, and the best part -- eating -- our culinary creations. Our friends rave about our food (it could be they’re just being polite, but considering there’s rarely any leftovers, we don’t think so) and often ask for the recipes, which is one of the reasons for this blog. The other reason is I’ve decided I should do what I love, and as anyone who knows me will attest, cooking and entertaining are my favorite pastime. 

Just like we do in our kitchen, we'll divvy up the duties and then come together for the final presentation. I'll write, he'll photograph, we'll cook. The recipes will come from one of our more than 150 cookbooks, our favorite blogs and sites, family and friends, as well as occasionally original recipes. We'll include tips and interesting tidbits too.

We hope you enjoy this food lover’s blog, and we look forward to sharing our favorite recipes.

  1. For all foodies and maybe non foodies alike, a great read. Thank you for making me want to connect with my inner chef!

  2. I'm looking forward to this blog--your house was the first time I had anything "en papillote," and I still remember how delicious that fish was!
