About Lacey, A Sweet Pea Chef
Hi there! My name is Lacey and I am A Sweet Pea Chef. I am also a mother of two adorable little girls (Jordan and Savannah), madly in love with and happily married to my high school sweetheart, Dustin, and a recent transplant to Austin, Texas. Let me help you find some easy family recipes to enjoy.
I have always enjoyed cooking and eating healthy cuisine. I learned how to cook in my youth by cooking dinners for my family and then later refined my culinary skills while I attended college. I am always looking for new recipes to try and new methods of cooking. I believe that food can–and should–be a joyous and celebrated part of one’s day. Oh — and it should, of course, be easy and not intimidating!
I completed my graduate education in psychology in 2003 and began to work in the field of social services. The amazing experience of my first daughter’s birth in May 2009 made me realize I wanted to pursue my passion to cook as a way of choosing a happier, healthier lifestyle. With the ongoing (and amazing) assistance and support from my husband, I created a personal chef business, called Sweet Pea Chef, as well as this here blog.
Come join me as I learn about Austin, business, motherhood, food, family and myself along the way.
