Everything we do at Didn’t I Just Feed You is driven by three things.

on a mission


We believe that if you feel supported through community and build the kitchen skills that give you some of your time back, food joy will flourish naturally. Pride in what you cook. Calm around the table. More cake. More cheese. More of both. We’re here to help facilitate it all. 

We want to help you create food joy in your home.


Whether or not you love cooking, the relentlessness of feeding a family is a major time suck for parents. Through the podcast, classes, and bonus content in our community, we share skills and pro tips that will make you a more efficient cook.  And being more efficient in the kitchen means having more time out of it. 

We want to give you back your time.


Whether you’re a professional cook like us, someone who loathes cooking, or you fall someplace in between, feeding a family is relentless. Nobody is exempt from feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by the responsibility. But at least we have each other. 

It may not always seem like a lot, but when it comes to finding the will to keep going — because we don’t have much of a choice (damn, kids!) — it helps more than you can imagine. One peek into our community and you’ll see. 

We want you to know: You are not alone. 


About Meghan & Stacie

that's us

featured on:

Both Meghan and Stacie are professional cooks with a collective 20+ years of experience in test kitchens, on television, at food publications, and more. They know their way around a kitchen, and want to share with you what they’ve learned over the years. 

Armed with culinary prowess, practical advice, and microphones, Meghan and Stacie make life as the family cook easier. And funnier too.

Meghan is a recipe developer, culinary producer, mom of two, and baker at heart. While she earned her culinary degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from the New England Culinary Institute, she cut her chops as a food media maven working for over a decade as part of Alton Brown’s culinary crew. Meghan’s writing regularly appears on Kitchn.com where she teaches instructional cooking. Her work has been featured in ParentsRedbook, and Better Homes and Gardens. She’s a wanna-be minimalist who is sprinkles obsessed. Meghan is currently moving her family from Boise, Idaho to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she can finally find her favorite mayo (Duke’s!) on the regular.

Stacie's Cookbook

Stacie is a Brooklyn-based cookbook author and food editor, mom of two boys (and a crazy dog), committed maximalist, and fashion-obsessed Real Housewives devotee. Her first cookbook Make It Easy: 120 Mix-and-Match Recipes to Cook From Scratch with Smart Store-Bought Shortcuts When You Need Them is a real-life manual of just-healthy-enough family eating for busy parents and their kids (yes, even the picky ones), and her second cookbook, Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner: 50 Winning Ways to Cook It Up!, is a one-stop shop for mastering everyone’s favorite dinnertime protein. Stacie’s work has been featured in Parents magazine, Rachael Ray Every Day, The Washington Post, Redbook, and more. She’s also been a guest on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show, the TODAY show, QVC, and too many morning shows than is good for her caffeine habit.
