Rachel Farnsworth | Creative Director & Owner

Hello, I’m Rachel and I really love food! I started cooking at age 11 when I put a half cup of baking soda into a batch of cookies instead of a half teaspoon. Because…what’s the worst that could happen, right? The cookies were a spectacular fail and it got me interested in cooking. I’ve amassed several years of both formal and informal culinary training over the years. Thanks to the wonderful world of the internet I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking professionally, all while cooking barefoot from the comfort of my own home kitchen. My recipes are used in restaurants and bakeries around the world, I’m a published cookbook author, and I’m able to work with some of the largest food and kitchenware brands in the world. Here on The Stay At Home Chef is where I share my recipes and recipe video tutorials with a worldwide audience–all for free! You can learn more about me and my journey here.

Stephen Farnsworth | Technical Director & Owner

Hi! I’m Steve. Or Stephen. I am the Chief Steve at The Stay At Home Chef. What does that mean? I do all the Steve work which includes whatever you’d expect a business needs to run that isn’t listed elsewhere. Every business needs a Stephen, and I, Steve, am that Stephen. My theme song is “I am Steve” by Hey Steve. When I’m not turning the crank to keep The Stay At Home Chef running, you’d probably find me out turning the cranks on a bike. You’d probably never guess that based on my bio photo.

Caytlin McCleery | Head Chef

She was so interested in the culinary world that she even skipped college classes to watch Food Network’s Alton Brown. Caytlin is now a wife and mother of five children, who she calls her “guinea pigs.” They get to taste and provide feedback on the dishes she creates for “The Stay At Home Chef.” Caytlin has worked in the culinary industry for several years as a content creator, educator, and influencer. One of her favorite experiences has been catering, which she has done for events both large and small. Caytlin has also cooked for displaced families, homeless shelters, and community organizations.

Kayla Mogensen | Photographer

Kayla Mogensen is the photographer for The Stay At Home Chef. She has had a keen eye and passion for photography ever since her dad let her borrow his camera as a kid (which he never got back). Since then, she has a variety of experience doing photography for events, weddings, and families. In the last few years, she developed not only a knowledge of studio lighting but also a love for shooting products and food. This is shown through her work at American Crafts, Amazon, and other clientele products like Crumbl and LooLoo in her own studio. 

In her personal life, Kayla got married to her best friend, Garrett, and recently an extra member to the family last summer. They enjoy game nights, date nights, and karaoke.
