Stacie Archer is a full time mother of three and food blogger (Seven Plates). Devoted to all that makes a house a home, she enjoys crafts, food, cooking, church, and activities in which her kids and family can thrive. To that end, Seven Plates is a popular blog that speaks to parents like herself. One can find recipes and how-to videos encouraging moms to explore easy, affordable ways to cook dinner for their families to enjoy around the table each night. Her easy nature and clever cooking techniques led to guest appearances on the Rachel Ray Show. In March 2020, in collaboration with and support of Camillus House, Stacie founded an online cooking class called CHEF (Creating Healthy Easy Food). Once a month, the program delivers meal kits to families receiving services and invites them to learn how to cook a new recipe.
