Lisa Steele is a Maine-based former Wall Street accountant turned backyard chicken keeper turned recipe developer, cookbook author and TV personality. She has spent more than 15 years cooking and baking with eggs and has created hundreds of egg recipes for her website and debut cookbook The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook (HarperCollins, 2022).  


Lisa has appeared on NPR, New York Living, KTLA, California Live, WGN, Today in Nashville, Good Morning Maine, Hallmark Home & Family, Martha Knows Best on HGTV, Good Day Columbus, and Great Day Houston and she's currently the host of the award-winning, 30-minute "lifestyle" television show Welcome to my Farm which airs on CreateTV and public television stations nationwide.

Her recipes and tips for cooking with eggs have been featured in The New York Times, Country Living magazine, Epicurious, Food & Wine, Martha.com, Mashed, Parade, The Splendid Table, The Spruce Eats, the Tasting Table, The Washington Post, Woman's World and more.

Lisa graduated from Bryant University with a bachelors degree in Accounting and went to work on Wall Street for several years. She started raising chickens in 2009 and shortly after started blogging about it. 

More than 800+ blog posts, 6 books on raising chickens, and a social media platform with nearly 1 million followers later, she decided to pivot and focus on the culinary side of eggs as well. Fully embracing the career change, she received a certificate in Recipe Development from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School and is working on her second cookbook which is due out in 2026.

Lisa currently lives on a small farm in Maine with her husband, their corgi, and flock of chickens, ducks and geese, where she enjoys creating recipes using eggs fresh from the chicken coop and seasonal produce from the garden.
