Hi! My name is Lisa and welcome to Food Well Said.

Food Well Said is about bringing you thoughtfully prepared, whole food recipes. You will find some cooking, some baking and lots of picture taking.

The focus, when I am not whimsically unfocused, is on cooking real food.

I can be a carnivore and a vegetarian and everything in between.

This is not a nut-free, gluten-free or fat-free facility.

There really is a little bit of everything here.

I like whole foods. I like farmers markets. I like new twists on old favorites. I like just appreciating the old favorites. I like spice. I like heat. I like sweet & salty. What you see is what we eat. (except for the four legged treats)


A bit more about me…

I spent 15 years in personal and commercial banking. It was the career path I had decided on at a quite a young age. (strangely young I do believe)  I did an undergrad in business, followed by a masters in one. I like business. (I LOVE small business.) I like math. I like banking. (So much so I married a banker) I like spreadsheets. I like margins. I like P& L statements. I like formulas. I like solving for x.

Then at the end of 2010, I had a spectacular Little baby boy.

Everything changed. And after that first year, everything really changed. Suddenly everything I’d ever known professionally, didn’t fire me up anymore. Being with Little did. Making a home for him did. Cooking for him did. Baking for him did. Taking pictures of him did.

When it came time to go back to work, I didn’t.  I came here instead.

I live in the Lower Mainland of beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my (still a banker) husband and the most sweetest little boy.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I would love to cook for you.
