Bienvenue to Maison McCauley

Hello and thank you for visiting Maison McCauley!

I started this blog after our family made a cross country move to Chicago. I left my career as an attorney after we moved in order to spend more time with my two young daughters. The change gave me the opportunity to pursue my love of writing about food and home. I am at my happiest when I am lost in a creative project or when am sharing what I love with others.

Erma Bombeck once said that when she reached the end of her life and was before God she would like to “not have a single bit of talent left” because she used everything she was given. This blog is my outlet and way to share my talents and every bit of what I truly love with others. My recipes and writing have appeared in Life in the Woodlands Magazine, Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen and I am a contributing columnist for The Hinsdalean Newspaper. So join me as I dish on the latest recipes and projects from my home.


  1. Dear Amy,
    I can remember you, as a young child, always baking, cooking ,crafting and many times all the above at the same time. You always had a very creative mind.
    I will enjoy following you on your blog am excited to see what is next…

    1. Iris,
      How wonderful to hear from you! I think of you often when I am baking. I still remember your Indiana Jones cake for my brother which taught me that cake can more than just your traditional rounds. It is definitely an art and jut so much fun. Thanks for inspiring me!
