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.

What is this ’social kitchen’ I keep hearing about?

I always thought I had a social kitchen… cooking with friends where 20 of us always end up in my tiny kitchen, Sunday Supper’s in homage to my grandparents and my labor of love for friends and family, the quick pasta that gets whipped up when a friend stops by to visit… I’ve learned the social kitchen is oh so much more. Yes, it is about cooking and eating and friends but it is also about the kitchen as the social center of the home, where everyone comes together to not only eat but to engage with each other in many functions. Current use of the kitchen as a social center has evolved over time and been greatly influenced by changes within the family structure and that impact on daily life. Think turning on your oven remotely, while on the way home.
