Welcome to Homebody Eats. This website was created as a way to teach you how to master skills, culinary concepts, and high-quality dishes in your home kitchen.
On this site, you'll find recipes that will actually teach you how to cook. With each recipe you cook, you'll learn something new like 'what is a béchamel sauce' or 'best techniques for cooking pizza in a home oven.'
You'll learn to cook by understanding the history of a dish, why culinary professionals use certain techniques in the kitchen, and how the ingredients you select affect the final dish.
Think of this site as your free and fun version of home chef culinary school!
My name’s Jessica. The chef, writer, and photographer behind Homebody Eats. My husband and I live around St. Louis, Missouri with our two cats Sushi and Pancake. We love home improvement projects, watching trashy TV, and trying out new foods (especially ice cream).
While my journey of loving food and cooking has existed since around junior high, it really started to grow in college. While on a budget, we had to learn how to be savvy with our money, but still cook delicious food for ourselves and our friends because I refused to eat ramen and cereal for every meal!
I have several years of formal and informal culinary training that have led me to this point. I'm always reading, watching, and taking courses about food so I can continue to learn and teach you!
All of my recipes and cooking guides are well researched, thought out, and tested. I hope to bring you the best quality recipes and guides to help you learn at home. I can't wait to cook alongside you in your kitchen!
My whole life and passion revolves around food, and I love to connect and chat with fellow foodies.
