My name is Paige. I am one part food enthusiast and the other part interior designer. Before I even eat breakfast I am already contemplating what to make for dinner including the dishes and decor.

That doesn’t mean it’s over-the-top or complicated. It simply involves cooking a thoughtful meal and creating a warm, welcoming table for friends and family.

Last Ingredient is where I share my latest culinary adventures.

I have a degree in interior design and a culinary arts certificate. Work has given me the opportunity to travel the world including three years living in London.

I currently reside in Chicago with my handsome husband J., adorable son W. and gray cat S.

    Made this at work today using farro as I didn’t find wheat berries locally. Absolutely delicious, everyone had seconds but I don’t think there will be any leftovers to take home. We did add 4 slices of bacon (diced) to the pan before we roasted the veggies. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    Hi Paige,
    I’ve been on the hunt for a new recipe blogger and recently I came across your blog from an article I read. I have tried out a few recipes and have your website now saved in my favorites! Awesome work, look forward to trying many more!


I would love to hear from you!
