About Two Peas in a Kitchen

Welcome to our site! We are Bess Messerman and Raffaele Di Lallo, the founders of Two Peas in a Kitchen.

We met in 2014 and instantly bonded over the love of cooking. Although we didn’t even live in the same city at the time, we quickly became great friends and shared many of our favorite recipes with each other over the years.

Once Bess returned back to the Cleveland area, we started throwing dinner parties together for our friends and family.

We enjoyed cooking together so much that in 2023, we decided to launch Two Peas in a Kitchen in order to share our love of cooking with others.

Our goal is to help you create easy elegant eats. Each recipe that we share contains time-saving tips to help make cooking and entertaining more efficient, effortless and joyful.

We want to show you that you don’t have to be slaving away in the kitchen while your guests arrive for your dinner party. We want you to enjoy your guests!

And you don’t have to be scrambling to figure out how you can make a delicious home-cooked dinner for your family. All it takes is a little planning and our tips!

If you can be efficient AND create amazing food, you will soon discover that you will find more joy in the kitchen, just like we have strived to do over the years.

Each recipe that we share can either be partially prepared ahead of time, or contains other valuable, time-savings tips and tricks to streamline your efforts.

We believe that in today’s busy world, you can still create amazing meals with real ingredients, while not spending half of your life in the kitchen, all while enjoying your company!

So come and join our pod and discover the joys of cooking with us!
