    Stephanie is an absolute genius. Living in Chicago, I still can’t believe that I haven’t eaten at her restaurant yet. This, like everything she does, looks amazing.

    I love this video! I had no idea there was going to be a Pinterest Cookbook! She is so cute and personable. I cant believe I missed her season of Top Chef but I will be in Chicago this sumer! I would never think to use Lays potato chips in this way. It looks so yummy on all the food!

    You had me at Cheesy for that recipe. And a Pinterest cookbook sounds like my kind of cookbook.

    Hmm, I don’t use potato chips in too many recipes. I usually just dip them in ketchup! I would love to get some inspiration though, and Pinterest is always my best bet for food ideas.
