Kris and Wesley of How To Feed a Loon

We (Kris and Wesley) have been happily married for over 25 years. We even got legally married at a huge wedding we won (yes, we actually WON a big ole wedding) in 2014. Read all about that amazing happening right here.

Through the years, I (Kris) have honed my skills as a home cook.  I have studied with some amazing chefs, taken week-long ‘boot camp’ training sessions at the world renowned Culinary Institute of America, and have read what seems like every cook book and food blog in the world.

Wesley (The Loon) loves to eat my food. Hence, the name of our blog: How to Feed a Loon.

What started as a hobby just a few years ago has blossomed into something beyond our wildest dreams. Wesley has taken on the photography and food styling. And we work with an amazing team on creating informative, and yet funny, entertaining video.

We have a simple premise here at How To Feed a Loon: Let’s do really delicious food, and let’s have a ton of fun doing it.

We both grew up in families that enjoyed good food. That time-honored tradition of cooking with fresh, quality ingredients and bringing wonderful tasty dishes it to the table with a good bottle of wine, or iced tea, or a cold beer.

But that’s just the start of the joy. We love seeking out other foodies and chefs, incredible delicious destinations, and events that celebrate culinary brilliance. And we share all that, and more, with you! So, thanks for stopping by. Please come back often. And don’t ever hesitate to send us a note to let us know how you feel about a particular recipe or video, or anything that might be on your mind!

We love hearing from our friends and fans! We couldn’t do what we do without you. And why would we want to? Interested in working with us? Click here to learn more!

All the best and Happy Eating!!
