My mission is to support food businesses and home cooks in creating
delicious, flavorful food products and meals using quality ingredients that support a healthier lifestyle.

“I so enjoyed this online class. I would have never thought to attempt making ravioli myself, but Susan guided us through the steps and the result was delicious. I learned several great tips in the process. It was the most fun I’ve had cooking in a while! Highly recommended.”

-K. S., Silver Spring, MD

“We can’t say enough about how fun it was to work with Chef Susan at Love + Craft Kitchen to create custom recipes for our Bed and Breakfast–our guests simply rave about her breakfast creations both in flavor and appearance.  We appreciated Susan’s professionalism and attention to detail in structuring the recipes, including presentation tips, so the recipes were easy to prepare and produced quality dishes each time.  Thank you for being a part of making our business a success!”

– Corban Manor Inn, St. Paul, MN

“When I tell my business story, Love + Craft Kitchen is all over it. Chef Susan and her colleague not only helped me develop my salad dressing recipe, but also ‘held my hand’ as they took me from food novice to food producer. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me.”

– MV Salads, Martha’s Vineyard, MA
