 Cyndi is the author and creator of My Kitchen Craze. She loves to make easy, quick and delicious recipes. When she married her husband 14 years ago, she barely knew her way around the kitchen. After having two kids and becoming a stay at home mom, she started experimenting more and more in the kitchen. She soon discovered her new found love of cooking and wanted to share her passion in the kitchen with others looking to make simple, delicious and easy to make recipes. She specializes in a wide variety of foods ranging from creative breakfast ideas to sinful desserts and all the mouthwatering meals in between. If Cyndi isn’t in the kitchen, she’s either reading a romance novel, traveling with her family or relaxing on the couch watching her favorite tv shows. Head over to My Kitchen Craze to immerse yourself in some yummy goodness!

I am a seriously lucky wife to a wonderful man and a mother of 4 precious and wild little ones.  I share easy and family-friendly recipes on my blog, Diary of a Recipe Collector.  I have a slight cookbook obsession and have always enjoyed collecting, sharing, and creating recipes long before I even knew what a blog was!  I love putting a smile on everyone’s face when I share something good to eat with them.

Kacey is the blogger behind The Cookie Writer! When she is not busy baking cakes for friends and family, she is creating meals for her husband and daughter (all the while coming up with a vegetarian alternative for herself!) Food blogging fills the void from novel writing, and Kacey enjoys crocheting, home renovating, and playing video games in her spare time!

Michelle is the coffee-a-holic blogger behind A Latte Food. A self-proclaimed foodie, Michelle loves everything and anything sweet and makes it a point to stop into any bakery she comes across. With a degree in English Lterature, Michelle is a freelance writer (and occasional wedding photographer) by day and a blogger by night. In her free time, she can be found catching up with friends (over a cup of coffee, of course), reading a book, spoiling her niece and nephew, or watching (and quoting by heart) Gilmore Girls.
