Lisa Marie Todd


I’m Lisa Marie Todd creator of An Appetizing Life, a food and lifestyle blog. I produce weekly how-to cooking videos that encourage home cooks to have fun in the kitchen while creating healthy and flavorful dishes. Cooking, recipe development, entertaining, travel and design are my passions. Four years ago, I attended a culinary program in Los Angeles. During that time, I honed my cooking techniques and increased my culinary knowledge. That inspired me to develop and produce a weekly live cooking show and cooking videos. I've appeared on local tv stations and “EXTRA” doing giveaway and lifestyle segments. In 2017, I was invited to be a speaker at the Everything Food Conference.

After graduating from Santa Clara University, I spent my early career working in advertising and television production. I went on to become an actress and a “Fly Girl” dancer on the television show “In Living Color.” Besides running An Appetizing Life, I’m a mother and owner/designer of MarieTodd, a Los Angeles-based home fragrance, personal fragrance, and jewelry company. I've recently begun privately coaching women in career transition who want to learn about content marketing and building their brand.

When I have downtime (which I make time for), I enjoy traveling, practicing yoga and being a serial home remodeler. My goal is to inspire and encourage people to find the paths that lead them to their most appetizing life.
