My friend Lisa has always just been, my friend, Lisa. Honestly, we were never even that close. Certainly closer than acquaintances, but not besties or anything like that. I knew her from dance class — we’d dance and catch up afterward as our sweaty bodies cooled down from the class. We had some mutual friends. I’d been to her apartment for a party. You know, my friend, Lisa.
Well, wouldn’t you know it…Lisa is a genius. Recently, she started a blog (shameless plug: you can find it at www.lisaadamsinnyc.com) which completely sucked me in. Because she is a cook and a caterer, it’s essentially a food blog, but let me tell you, it is so much more than just a food blog.
I have been touched and tickled by her insights and musings. She always finds a clever or personal way to enrich her posts about recipes with meaningful allegories or metaphors. She’s never preachy or almighty, just honest and open. Her blog is sweet, rich, delightful, and relatable – very much like her food and her personality.
I am blown away by the skills and depth in this friend of mine. I love that I’ve had this delicious surprise in my life.
And now I am not only her friend. I am her fan.

So generous! Thank you for shining some light on me in your blog space. Here’s to growing our friendship and our blogs! So glad you’ve found a place for YOUR honest and relatable musings and are sharing YOUR genius! xoxo
Hi Paige! Totally agree, Lisa gets it right on her blog. Even if I don’t make the recipe, I benefit from the words, always. But I *try* to make as many of the recipes as possible, the source is good 😉 Now YOU have another fan in Seattle! Actually – we’ve danced together a few times in Paul’s class, too – but that was about two years ago when I still lived in NYC. Hope you are well and happy! – Jeffrey
Aaah! LOVE delicious surprises and Lisa Adams is always full of them . . . she not only surprises with her delicious creations but with her never-ending nuggets of wisdom . . . Great post!
Lisa is one of a kind and I couldn’t agree more with all the positive and complimentary statements made about her by her friends, family and fans. LUCKY ME: I fall into into each one of those categories! 🙂
I couldn’t agree more! Lisa is truly one of a kind. I have to say, as a friend AND fan of hers too, she is hands down one of the most special, interesting, lovely, loving and wonderful people I have the pleasure of knowing.
And her food is DELICIOUS. So that certainly doesn’t hurt:)
