About Me

Hi, I’m Leigh. I am a wife, a mom and a self-proclaimed comfort foodie! I love to eat, I love to cook and I love to feed people! About a year ago, I began sharing my love of food through photography and commentary on Instagram (@theleighfactor).

Support from family, friends and even total strangers lead me to create this blog to feature my recipes and chronicle my food story. Success with both prompted me to begin to offer locals a meal planning/meal prep and delivery service featuring my home-cooked food. I also started catering small events like birthday parties, showers and retreats.

Join me on my food journey; I promise to make it picturesque and tasty!


“We hired Leigh to chef our yoga retreat at a private venue in upstate New York. We were blown away with her level of preparedness and execution. Months ahead of time we started a conversation with Leigh where she inquired about our needs and then helped us shape our menu accordingly. She fed 22 hungry yogis 3 meals a day along with 2 snacks and even found time to whip up fresh juice shots at 6am in the morning! It seemed that each meal flowed from the kitchen effortlessly (as someone who has worked in food service for many years, I know how hard that can be when serving a large group). The food was presented beautifully. We appreciated the thoughtfulness of color and styling of each meal that appealed to our eyes even before it reached our mouths. Most importantly, everything was delicious: from juicy black bean burgers with cabbage slaw to the homemade fruit stuffed strudels to sweet yet spicy gazapacho and an absolutely amazing green goddess dip!! At the end of the retreat, many of our yogis were eager to get her contact info and follow her blog and Instagram- in my eyes, that means she nailed it.”

“Finding myself ordering in dinner for my family and eating lots of meals out, I contacted Leigh to help me with meal prep during busy school nights. We worked together to come up with a plan and delivery schedule that worked for us both and went from there.  I had a few food restrictions I wanted to incorporate (low in carbs, high in protein, for example) and Leigh was able to provide me with some amazing meal options. Most weeks I can’t decide what to order as everything sounds so delicious! And it IS all delicious! We haven’t once been remotely disappointed. Leigh has been a huge help to my family as we struggled to eat healthy, home-cooked meals, especially during the busy holiday season. I couldn’t recommend working with Leigh more!”
