GET Debra's Little Black Book

I’m often asked, “Who’s the best handyman in the area? Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.

You can get your very own electronic copy, or a beautifully bound and printed version as a gift from me to you. Just pop in your information below, and we’ll send one your way.
