About Us

“People who love to eat are the best people.”—Julia Child

Good. Food. Stories. is a place for people who love to eat, sharing adventurous but unpretentious recipes for real life.

We understand that food is both a need and a want. On Good. Food. Stories., we balance the need for recipes that fit into your weekly meal plan alongside ideas that inspire.

Our recipes and recommendations offer clear explanation with a dash of humor and give curious cooks the confidence to enjoy, explore, and experiment.

Sometimes things get weird around here, but we always back it up with solid recipes and stories that spell it all out for you.

Whether you’re looking for classic comfort foods, cocktails with an inspired twist, off-the-beaten-path spots on your travels, or just the best damn carbonara you’ve ever tasted, you’ll find it all at Good. Food. Stories.

After all, there’s always a story to tell about food, so let’s make it a good one.

About Casey Barber

Hi, I’m Casey Barber: a writer, traveler, and artist.

My work, including editorial features, recipe development, photography, and illustrations, has appeared on TODAY Food, The Kitchn, CNN Travel, Better Homes & Gardens, and other national publications.

I’m the author of Classic Snacks Made from Scratch: 70 Homemade Versions of Your Favorite Brand-Name Treats and Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food, as well as the the co-writer of Inspired Bites: Unexpected Ideas for Entertaining from Pinch Food Design and the illustrator of A Is for Absinthe: A Spirited Book of ABCs.

I live in northern New Jersey with my husband Dan, two hungry cats, and a few too many pieces of vintage Pyrex.
