About Me

Hello world! My name is Stacey, and I am the proud author and photographer for The Smelly Onion!! As you may have already guessed I am living in Chicago, IL. I transplanted here from Indiana and while I no longer live in Indiana, I still love everything Indianaish (read: HOOSIERS and biscuits & gravy..). Other than running this blog, I am a full-time student and Registered Nurse. And when I’m not doing that, I am busy trying to persuade Matt to adopt a puppy!

If you’re wondering YES I do eat all the food I make. I always test a recipe before posting about it and only post about it if I like it! I try to eat and make healthy recipes, but sometimes I just need to indulge. I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I do, too! Contact me if you have any questions or comments. In the meantime, feel free to poke around. A few pages are still ‘under construction’ so please be patient !
