Featured Blogger: A Modest, Not So Novice, Chef

We couldn’t be prouder to introduce this week’s featured blogger. Not only is she sweet as pie, but she can bake a mean one too!  This lady is being modest with the title of her blog. Everything she makes is worth clipping and storing in your recipe book, especially because her photographs are so beautiful! It has been a pleasure of ours to read her blog, and we’re positive you’ll be tickled by it too.

When you started your blog: December 2008

Why: Because I was a newlywed who had never cooked a full meal and I wanted to keep track of recipes we liked and did not like.  Never thought it would become what it is (or that I would actually enjoy cooking)!

Biggest blogging challenge: Photography! When I started, my photography was REALLY bad!

Biggest blogging reward: Inspiring others to try new things. Oh and getting a reason to make sweets!

What’s the one thing you think your readers would never guess about you? That my favorite mac and cheese in the world is…..Stouffers from the freezer section…it’s like crack…but better!
