Welcome to Live To Eat!

So, I’m throwing myself out there.  It’s scary, but exciting.  People may love it or hate it, but I’m really proud of this project.  I’ve learned so much through this process, and I have so much more to learn.  Elizabeth, my beautiful wife, I love you, and this is a new beginning for us that is so much deeper than the show.  Everyone who’s been involved in this crazy project (Phil, Susan, Shane, Matt, Aaron, Josh, Luke, and the rest of you know who you are), I love you all, and I’m excited for what is to come!  I’m ready for this roller coaster ride, because I trust who’s driving.  This is a family operation, and we’re looking forward to hearing from all of you.  I want this blog to be a way to share and connect over our love for food.  Enjoy!

    Hi Nate,
    Your site was sent to me by Matt’s mother-in-law (my cousin) I love it! It was so much fun to watch and the recipe sounds wonderful. I hope everything works out well for you and the entire group. Looking forward to the next one.

      Next episode is coming this week. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it, we’ve worked very hard and to know that “Live to Eat” is being seen in Dickinson, TX is amazing!

    Hi Darlins’! I watched the first episode and loved it. What a unique approach. I love the whole idea of food centered around family and friends. That was always the way it was in our family when I was growing up. Even if you have to have liver and onions for dinner because that’s all that’s left in the food budget for the week, eating it with those you love makes it taste better. I am so proud of you both and can’t wait for Italian! I have forwarded this to everyone I know. Love, Aunt Barbie

  3. nathaneats Says:

    Hi Aunt Barbie! Thank you for your support. We love you and are excited to see what happens with this project:-) We will keep you updated with everything new that were doing. See you soon.


  4. Hi my precious nephew & niece,
    Great to hear from you. I love what you have done and are doing here, it is great. and now I know what you have been doing. God will bless this I am sure. Food is a good thing 🙂
    Looking forward to what’s next. I am going to forward this to all I know.
    I love you both and God bless you exceedingly abundantly above and beyond what you can think or imagine.

  5. Hey guys! I can see everything except the video on my phone, so I’ll have to wait until I’m home for the Main Course, so to speak.

    Also, if you could randomly throw a Magnum or Blue Steel in the middle of a souffle demo, we’d all be very thanful.

    ps: I remember crying when you wanted to come to Alex and my joint birthday party because I was afraid you’d eat all our cake…now make us proud, Chubs!

  6. Nathan – this is Frances, Chris Fanning’s wife….we love your show and wish you all the best with it. You are a natural and looks like you were born to do it.
    Looking forward to seeing you on FOOD NETWORK!

    • nathaneats Says:


      I’m still working out the kinks but having a lot of fun doing it. Thanks for the support, episode two coming soon.


  7. Looking forward to more episodes!!! Love the tid bit’s inbetween the cooking : )!!

  8. Well well well. who knew? All of these years and I had NO idea. You really are more than just a pretty face wearing swimming trunks while shooting step-back, fall-away (off the wrong foot) jumpshots.
    Love finding out about your true passion and cannot wait for the official invite to LIC (we’llbring the beer and booster seat).
    Best of luck my friend.

    • nathaneats Says:

  9. Im so proud of you guys- the show looks so great!! I really am so impressed.

  10. Hello Nathan and Elizabeth,

    I’m so delighted to meet you and have access to your fabulous blog.

    I enjoyed the video and the bio very much.

    Your aunt Debbie shared the link with me.

    I have an herb farm in Tennessee and supply her with hand crafted teas.
    We have become very good friends, she is one special lady!

    I grew up in Alabama, come from a huge family of foodies-growing, cooking, eating, and sharing the pleasure.

    I’ll be following your blog…and…if you are so inclined you might stop in and take a peek at mine.

    BeasBeatitudes…all about herbs and food.

    Let me know if I can lend a hand in helping you promote your blog…if you need or wish that kind of help.

    Blessings for your day~

  19. Orlando Carreras Says:

    I think I have just been inspired to eat “the other white meat.” Congrats on a job well done. I did not know you had “Iron Chef” aspirations. What other talents are you hiding??

  20. Hey buddy!!!
    You and Elizabeth look great like always! Love the site. Best of luck with it. I never would have thought you were such a great cook. My Hubby and I have to come to one of your get together’s!! Food looks great, I will be trying the pork for sure!!!!!!!!!

  21. So fun to see the final product! You two look great of coarse, but the site and content is really awesome. Here’s to new and exciting adventures. Wishing you the very best on this! Here’s to good food, friends and the enjoyment of LIFE! God Bless,

  22. WOW! Nate – awesome! I love your website and cooking resource. Our sons Chris and Ben are great cooks too – so I’m passing this on to them.
    Right now we’re in El Paso and Las Cruces – we’ve found some new really great tasting chilis and chile powders here. Eating out every day – some times twice a day just to celebrate these new dishes and spices.
    I’m buying some before we leave to take home. Let me know and I’ll send you some. The pork roast and salsa – can’t wait! Keep up the good work – give Elizabeth a hug! You both look great – always have, always will. Hugs and blessings, Julie

  23. Hi Nathan,

    I like the friendly home based atmosphere of the show. Hope to see many more interesting dishes. Are you going to bring in desserts?… If not you maybe Elizabeth will make them? Once more, best of luck and keep up the good work.

    • nathaneats Says:


      Yes on the desserts… I’m still working off the sweets from the holidays, but be patient, I promise it will be worth it!

  24. Hey Brother Nathan. It was great meeting you at the P.A. meeting last week. I truly enjoyed that first installment of your L T E project. Very hip, entertaining, and worth the watch : – ) . You and Elizabeth make a great couple by the way. I Look forward to sharing your work with the gang. May God continue to bless and order your steps . Very exciting!

    • nathaneats Says:


      Thanks for the feedback, it was great to meet you and I’m sure it won’t be the last time. I will keep you posted with all that is going on with future episodes and events.

  25. Leigh Ann Caddock Says:

    Hi Elizabeth & Nathan,
    The video was so fun to watch, and the entire web site is beautifully done! Everytime we’ve been around your Mom, Becky & Barb over the last few years, we have heard stories about Nathan’s cooking skills. So how fun for us all the way out here in Oregon to be able to share a part in that with them and you!! We pray the very best for you both and your new adventure.
    With love,
    Leigh Ann

  26. Nate and Libby,

    WOW! I loved this. I love the flashes of real life and stories, the food; it was fun, fast and entertaining. The photography was fast but not dizzying, really well done. Libby, you are sooo beautiful, in heart and body. Nate, you look very natural and easy on film. You guys are made for this. I love that you are dreaming and fulfilling the dreams God gives you. Taking chances. It is inspiring. Keep it up.


    PS: It just seems like yesterday you were just kids, now you are changing the world. Who would have known.

  27. Marilou Caddock Says:

    Hey Nathan and Elizabeth, I KNEW when you cooked for us on New Year’s day there would be success!!! I loved the first of many shows. Many blessings for this wonderful endeavor, may He bless you two. Love, Marilou

  28. Hi Nate – Great name by the way… one shared by my 9-year old son 🙂
    Your show was sent to me from Christine Gregg from Puyallup, WA. Remember Puyallup? Most people can’t even pronounce it. Anyway, I had the privilege of teaching Christine’s two beautiful daughters, Maleah and Breanne, and I remember the girls telling me about you then. The show looks awesome and I pray that you have great success with all you have ahead. I love to cook and will be passing your show on to friends. Blessings to you!

  32. April Fauske Says:

    Appreciated the way you wove character virtues throughout the show, faithfulness (to your wife), loyalty (to friends), humility (acknowledging your God) as well as love for life and FOOD!
    Can’t wait for you to do a show from our deck overlooking Lake Roosevelt (for you New Yorkers, that is in the Great Northwest, Fruitland, Washington to be exact). Save your barbeque episode for that one.
    I love you,
    Auntie April

    • nathaneats Says:


      I’m saving the BBQ show for Fruitland and the Great Northwest! I’ll buy the plane ticket you provide the steak :-)!!!

  33. “Coffee, beer, and swine.” LOL… I loved this line! (Also love these three). Congrats on the new venture; may it bring new levels of success and open fresh doors of opportunity.

  34. Greetings Nathan and Elizabeth,

    I found your website through your aunt Debbie. What a fabulous job you have done and I feel that we have so much in common already. I sell Gourmet food myself and I can not tell you how often I remind my clients and team members of the very facts you present here. Everyone eats. It’s what binds us together and makes us a community no matter where we come from or where we are going. I look forward to visiting your site often and would love to hear more from you both if you ever get a minute:)

    • nathaneats Says:


      Thank you for the comments. Lets stay in touch, mabe we can work something out where i can use your products on the show. It could be good for both of us.

  35. Really impressive stuff. You guys nailed it, great lighting, camera angles, and sound. Edited in a reality TV style with a sense of humor that will either make Mario Batali envious or Emeril knock it off completely. Great Job.

  36. Hi Elizabeth, Hi Nathan:
    Im very impressed… I loved the concept & the video. The dish looked “delicioso” I’m gonna try to make it (he he)
    I didn’t see this coming… I really liked the idea that you guys included your friends, it gives the perfect personal & unique touch.
    I’m looking forward to the next episode.
    Keep it up & Good luck! Hope to see you guys soon!

  37. Louie & Suzanne Leon Says:

    Loved your show, can’t wait to see more and try the recipes. Your Auntie Karla sent us your link. We remember you (and brother & sister) when you were about ten years old. We are proud of you. Congratulations on stepping out and chasing your dreams!

  38. Sarah Zaske Says:

    Have to say, this is great. I am impressed and feel like this will be a great thing. Keep the good food and recipes coming man.


  44. Dear Nathan and Elizabeth,

    Wow what a great idea for a cooking show!!! I believe you already have a great fan base from your modeling work, that’s how I found you! The show has a perfect blend of humor, creativity (in food and technical), friendships and flavor. It’s great to get to know you both!
    I have a friend in the cooking show field and will forward this to her as soon as I track her down! I hope it can lead to something for you!
    I think people will watch a show of this nature for a variety of reasons. I’ve watched the show several times, alright maybe about 10, and I’m a vegetarian.
    Good Luck!!!
    Most Sincerely,
    Annie M

    • nathaneats Says:

      Annie, 10 times!!! Thanks for the support. Elizabeth and i are having a great time working together and are excited for whats in store. Good to hear from a vegetarian, I have been tossing the idea of a vegetarian episode soon. Post some of your favorite vegetarian recipes for me to check out.

  45. Hello Nathan

    Your Aunt Debbie posted this at the WIN network. All the ladies there have been viewing and love it.

    Video is very well done and a joy to watch.

    Cheers to you

    • nathaneats Says:

      Thanks Lisa, I really appreciate the feedback. I hope you and the ladies keep tuning in, we will have another episode up soon

  46. Angelia Willis-Fulford Says:

    Damon sent me a link to your show and I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I enjoyed. The porkloin looked DELICIOUS! We can’t wait to try it. We wish you the best of luck and can not wait to see future episodes. Good Luck, Angelia and Chad

  47. Yes Nathan, it is a very small world when minds and hearts reach out and touch.

    What better way to connect than through family and good food.

    Have much fun , honor the dedication, and share the joy.

    I’ll keep up with your progression ~

    Be happy.

    Bea Kunz

  48. Wow, what a great concept! I was sent a link to your new online cooking show and I wasn’t sure how entertaining it would be. What a unique idea to mix a cooking/lifestyle show bringing your friends and family together through food. It way exceeded my expectations. Your wife is so beautiful:-) Wow!

    Keep the cooking coming…Some TV network should definitely pick this one up. Looking forward to seeing the next episode on Italian.

    All the best,


  49. I tried the pork recipe it was great, I hope your show makes it to Australia it was really well done. It’s a great mix of family and food, and for me, being Italian that’s important. Will you be doing any seafood recipes? Can’t wait for the next episode.

    All the best

    • nathaneats Says:


      Australia! How did you come across the show? I’m glad you enjoyed the show and the spicy pork recipe. as far as seafood, yes, I will be doing some shimp in the next episode which should be up tomorrow.

  50. Yo Nathan,

    Like I said, I loved it. You were fantastic. The flow was great. The idea of tying in family and friends makes it so real and special. I think people will really embrace you and the whole concept. Even a vegan like me can appreciate it:)!! If nothing else, I wanted to dive into the corn salsa mixture…looks awesome!! I appreciate what you are doing, following your heart and your passion. We both know, God will bless that every time. Thanks again for sharing this with me, and I will pass it on. Look forward to the next episode.
    All the best,

  51. Shrimp…be still my heart…and taste buds!

    WOW!! I am so very proud of how well your show is taking off. It blesses my heart to read how you two are impacting people around the world! Our God promises He is going to do great and mighty things in our lives.

    Keep up the great job. I look forward to all your future episodes!
    Keep putting your faith and trust in your Heavenly Father.

    May you start your work in faith, continue in obedience and finish with love. I love you so much! God bless you abundantly,

  53. Oh, I forgot to tell you. I linked your site to my blog. http://prosperedhealth.blogspot.com

    Hope it brings you many followers.

    Aunt Deb again 🙂

  54. Hello Nathan,

    I found an interview with you from an authors site, you mentioned a cooking show in the works, than I found this web site, great design by the way.

    Can’t wait to try the seafood recipe, my uncles are all Cray fisherman so I love anything seafood.

  55. Leiha Mann Says:

    Nathan, I’m so excited that you’re pursuing your dream! Your show looks wonderful. I love cooking shows but prefer to have someone else do the cooking so you’re my kind of friend! I love people who love to cook, LOL. It’s going to be fun for us to go on this journey with you.

  56. I’m so glad I found your cooking site! It’s always great to discover fun and new cookingideas, especially ones so creative. Excellent job with the recipes and the site! Best of luck…:)

  57. Liz Friess Says:


    What a cool show! It was fresh and upbeat and just made you want to smile real big…but then you started cooking and then the whole mouth watering thing happens… *giggle*

    Best of luck with this! I plan on following the cooking adventures and look forward to the next installment!

    Peace & Hugs!

  58. Hi Nathan & Elizabeth,

    I found your impressive site by pure chance. It’s great to see your dream is becoming reality. That Fettuccine recipe looks interesting. Some of my families are Asians, so I love anything spicy especially Thai and Indian food.

    Hey, I notice that we can share recipes too. That’s great. Oh, I hope you don’t mind if I put your link on my blog.

    Best of luck,

    • nathaneats Says:


      I’m glad to hear you found us! Please post your recipes, i am planning on doing a show with my favorites. I would be honored if you put a link to the show on your blog, thank you so much.


  59. Cristi-Navy wife Says:

    What great recipes! I can’t wait to try a couple out on my hubby when he comes home in the spring! Could you all do me a HUGE favor? Post some “non-spicy” recipes? (or alternative spices for the hot ones?) When hubby gets home we plan on having another child and I can NOT do spicy when I’m pregnant!
    Thank you!

    • nathaneats Says:


      Glad to hear you liked the show and recipes. I will be posting more recipes very soon that aren’t spicy, also if you want to omit the spices that are to much for you they can be replaced with your favorite spices or just removed alltogether.


  60. Hi Nathan & Elizabeth –

    Leiha and Karen Moning pointed me in the direction of your video and I am thrilled. I too am a food lover and truly enjoyed the video. Your down-to-earth approach, passion and embracing the family/friend element is a wonderful touch. Plus (and it’s a big plus), your cooking style is straightforward. I’m loving it.

    I can’t wait to try the tenderloin and salsa. My husband will lose his mind when he tries it.

    Looking forward to the next episode.


  61. Hi !! Leiha clued me in to your show and I really enjoyed it! I agree with Christy-Navy-wife, and I’d enjoy some non-spicy recipes as well. Why hasn’t food network picked this show up?!?!


  62. Rhiannon Rippke Says:

    I don’t know you in real life like most the people on this site seem to, but I got your link from Karen Monings newsletter and it looks great. Cooked up the pork tenderloin last night and it was a HUGE sucess with my family and friends. Can’t wait to try the Spicy Shrimp dish. Keep it coming. I have forwarded this to all my friends.


  63. Hello Nathan and Elizabeth,

    This is such an exciting venture, I am so happy that you have decided to go ahead with this project. Not sure I have any recipes worth exchanging but cant wait to see more of the recipes you are all sharing.
    Love the video Nathan, very nicely done.
    The idea of having family and friends gives the idea a nice touch.
    With your permission Nathan I would love to put a link to your blog on my website.
    Best of luck always,

  64. Hey, Nathan!

    I also found your link from Karen Marie Moning’s website/newsletter. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your first episode and my hubby and I plan on trying out a couple of your recipes. He watches cooking shows every chance he gets. We tag-team. He usually does the actual cooking, and I do more of the preparation part. We both liked that your cooking segment was quick, simple, and to the point. I also thought it was great that your friends had such nice things to say about you and that one of the them is from Alabama (where I live). Roll Tide!!! I’ve sent your link to some of my other family members who enjoy cooking too. Keep the segments/episodes coming! Congratulations on your new show!

  65. Dear Nathan and Elizabeth,
    Your 2nd video is as great as the first!!! I love how you include your NYC family, you make it so friendly and it shows what kind of people you are at heart!!!
    I’m working out some vegetarian recipies just for you two! I’m writing a special cookbook, I’m about half way done, but this recipe will be just for you – spicy! I’ve never cooked with hot peppers before but I’m including them in this recipe. My daughter Chrissy was laughing at me, probably because I’d do it for you two but have never worked with hot peppers before! I’m developing a taste for them now, so thanks!
    Keep up the excellent work!!!
    Most Sincerely,
    Annie M

  66. Elizabeth Marchini Says:


    Congratulations! I love the show and look forward to the next one as well as trying the recipes. I heard about it from Karen Moning over at her message board. Of course all of us support you. Best wishes for you and your family and with the show.

    Take care,


  67. Liz Friess Says:

    So Episode 2 brings it all home! Most of my family is in NY and watching this made me miss them so much! The food looked fantastic (in fact, I’ll be making that Caprese tonight!) and what makes the show so much more special is seeing the love you and Elizabeth share. It’s real, it’s genuine and I really like watching the two of you!

    Again, looking forward to the next episode!

    Vivo , amore , risata e mangiare!

  68. For some reason I can’t get the second episode to come up??

    Aunt Debbie

  69. Ok, I got to watch it. Another FANTASTIC episode. It looked delicious.
    Elizabeth, you did a fantastic job with the decorating too.
    I am so proud to be an Aunt of such stars 🙂

  70. Kim Allison Says:

    Linked to your site from a Karen Marie Moning email, and so glad I did! Watched the cooking video, happened to have a pork tenderloin & half the spices already. Got the rest at the store and cooked your recipe that same day. I really wasn’t expecting much, but it was SO good! It was as good as going out to an expensive restaurant! Gorgeous AND good in the kitchen?! lucky girl…….Kim Allison, Jax, FL

  71. Hello Nathan,

    O sole mio sta nfronte a te : ) i love that song. Are you Italian? I am, we rock.

    Loved episode two, i will definitely try those recipes as well, keep you posted how i go. I think what i liked best about this episode was when you cook you joke around and have fun, a poor mans facial hahahaha, i absolutely lost it when you said that. Keep smiling that beautiful smile, can’t wail till the next episode.

    Ines : )

  72. Holy smokes Nathan it’s been a long time! All this technology bringing old classmates back together is really something, no?

    I hope you enjoy the heck out of NYC, I’ve always wanted to visit and someday I will. Of course I love good food just like any healthy red-blooded American boy and will have to try out some of your concoctions.

    Godspeed to you, your wife, and other adopted family members!

  73. Nathan …just gotta tell ya I love your show! It is different from so many of the other cooking shows out there.It feels ‘comfortable’ and ‘inviting’.My 18yr old son saw your 2nd episode and told me I had to go out tonight and get the ingredients so he could make that meal.I did what every good mom does and handed him the keys and said the store is that way. You have created a monster…my kitchen has been stolen.But its all good cause if he can cook then he wont starve when he moves out next school year…right? Gads I hope so…your wife is a very lucky woman! We cant wait for the next episode! I have also been spreading the word or rather your link to all my friends in cyberland…they ask “Nathan who?” and I show them a book cover and they say”OOOOOh,him really? He cooks too?” and always a big “WOW”…Cant wait to see what you have in store next time….Carol

  74. Libby and Nate,
    It was fun watching your second show today. I loved the commentary’s by Libby too. (On the phone) I liked the first show a lot but think I even enjoyed the second one more.

    I agree with April, a show this summer at their cabin would be fantastic. In fact I think you could do several shows from there. I can see one episode on April and Davids deck with the Columbia river flowing by in the background and hummingbirds dive bombing you while you cook. Then you should do one on their upper 20 with a wood picnic table all laid out in their big empty field with all the layers of beauty in the background. Of course the yellow jackets and mosquitoes would be dive bombing you there. I have some friends who could supply some homemade drum music for the background sounds. And of course one on the beautiful beach.

    Maybe some of my edible flowers for salads will be in full bloom and I can make you a salad when you’re there.

    I also sent your link to my daughter in law, Anna, who has a deli in Doylestown, PA. She and her husband run Cote’s and Company there. I think she and her husband will enjoy your show. Anna loves to cook too and they are fulfilling their dreams at Cote’s.

    Anyway, keep it up. I am enjoying what you are doing and can’t wait to see the meal for 80 people. I am glad it is you not me cooking that one.

    It seems you two are gifted with open hearts, good friends and great talent. You are naturals for this endeavor. (Sorry this is so long)

    Love ya gobs and God bless,


  75. …and the hits just keep coming.
    I love the laughs and the lessons.
    You Rock!

    Your show is great. What really makes this good, is not the production values – which are superlative for the budget you have to be shooting on – but your genuine zest for living.

  77. Aunt Becky & Uncle David Says:

    Hi Kids!

    We loved BOTH epidsodes! You may be getting some responses from 8th graders. I showed episode 1 to my classes. It was so fun to see their reactions. Everything was so professtional. The two of you were so poised and well-spoken – and handsome, beautiful and wonderful! Having your friends speak about you as part of the program is brilliant. If it weren’t for the fact that I always talk about my family to my students, I think they might not have believed we we were related. I scrolled through your blog to see if I recognized any names from them. Not yet, but I may show episode 2 to them. I showed it to my book club and some other staff members. I’ll also forward the link to some other friends. It took me some time to contact you because Uncle David took our computer to a boat show for about two weeks. Love you two. So sorry we missed you during the holidays

  82. Another awesome show. Food bringing people together, that’s it. I like how your showcasing other people too. Very nice touch. of course the meal/cooking was amazing to watch. I agree with Debbie, show shot of completed meal on a plate.

    best to you

  83. Great episode, good-looking food. I agree with Debbie, but am I the only one who wishes the episodes go for longer? And wow you have such cool, supportive aunts.

    The people you have on the show are great. I especially loved the story of how they got together through paradox, she was sweating for him, that’s so sweet. Me, I just looked into my fiancés beautiful blue eyes, heard his accent and almost fell off my chair. Nice way to start. Keep up the good work, and I must say again, wow you have a beautiful smile.

  84. James Hansen Says:

    Hey Bro,
    Man busy day feeding 80 bellies. Nice work. You really know how to pull it off. You and Elizabeth are such a blessing to everyone. Now that Im living in KC you have to do a show on that good old barbeque. Or better yet you guys should come visit there some great places to eat out here. In fact thats all there is to do out here besides church. You could get some good dinner ideas. Looking forward to the next show.

  85. Your show is getting better and better. I enjoyed watching the third episode, especially when we get to see a part of your daily life. I’ll have to try that potato salad recipe. I hope you can show us some dessert too in future. I love brownies and cheese cakes. 🙂
    Looking forward to your next episode.

    That was another fun episode, there was a problem and I could only watch 3 and a half minutes of it which sucks, but the food looked great, soooo yummy.

    Wow, Elizabeth you have talent, the room looked wonderful. I wish I could hire you for my Wedding : ). What have you got planned for the next episode?


  96. Chris Stewart Says:

    Beautiful food, beautiful people how could this show miss? Nathan you’re talented, funny and entertaining while demonstrating great cooking tips and imagination.
    Elizabeth you’re adorable, creative and charming. It’s a kick watching you two- so obvious you’re crazy about each other making the show super fun to watch. Love the city photography, interviews with your well fed and happy friends, shopping trips, decorating tips make this great ‘must see TV’ Good for you!
