About Snappy Gourmet

Thanks for visiting Snappy Gourmet…”Fun food that’s a snap to make!”. I’m Lisa Huff, aka “Snappy Gourmet”, an Award-Winning Home Chef, Freelance Recipe Developer, Food Photographer, Food Stylist, and Food Blogger. I have won many awards and have won thousands of dollars worth of cash and prizes for my recipes over the years. I have also been selected to attend many of the country’s most prestigious cook-offs and competitions including the Pillsbury Bake-off, National Beef Cook-Off, and Sutter Home’s Build A Better Burger just to name a few. My recipes and I have also appeared in many national magazines, local news programs and newspapers, trade publications, various websites, Food Network shows, and even the Rachael Ray Show!

How is Snappy Gourmet different from other blogs and recipe sites? The majority of the recipes you will find here on Snappy Gourmet are MY original recipes created by ME. I didn’t think the world needed another blog or website that copied recipes from other blogs, magazines, and cookbooks. I know how to CREATE new, original, fun recipes and I hope you enjoy them!  My recipes and photos have also been featured many other places as listed below.

I have a MBA in finance but left the corporate world to raise my 2 small children and follow my food passion!  I’m currently doing some freelance work including recipe development, writing, and photography.   If you need a Recipe Developer or help with a project, please contact me at [email protected].
