Stacie Billis

Stacie Billis is a mom, cookbook author, food editor, and on-air expert. Called "an intelligent guide" with "creative cooking ideas that will appeal to a range of cooks" by Library Journal, her book Make It Easy: 120 Mix-and-Match Recipes to Cook From Scratch with Smart Store-Bought Shortcuts When You Need Them is a real-life manual of just-healthy-enough family eating for busy parents and their kids.

Yes, even the picky ones.

Stacie’s common sense approach stems from her Masters in child development, but honestly, her popularity might have more to do with her cheesy sense of humor and non-judgy approach – because she thinks it’s time that we stop being so hard on each other over food choices.

Stacie is the Editorial Director for food and drink at Cool Mom Picks, and her work has been featured in publications including ParentsEvery Day with Rachael Ray, The Kitchn, and Redbook.  Stacie has appeared on the TODAY show, Hallmark Channel's Home & Family, QVC, and other local and national television shows.

She is a graduate of Teacher's College at Columbia University and Vassar College, and lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband and two boys who are growing up way too fast. Probably because of what she feeds them.
