Stephanie

close
info:
Hello My Name is Stephanie.... I created Somewhat Simple in July of 2009 as a place to document my love of being creative. I am married to my best friend and together we are raising 4 sweet kids in sunny Arizona, USA. I love ice cream, autumn, Sunday naps, traveling, game nights and shopping. I am a bit obsessive compulsive and I love all things organized. I love reality TV, a new tube of toothpaste, a new jar of peanut butter, the scent of a new car and soft back scratches. I despise laundry more than anything else in the world! I'm also not a fan of unloading the dishwasher, Peeps marshmallow candies, mushrooms and Whoppers- those are disgusting.

Becky

close
info:
Hi, I'm Becky! I blog at Bite of Delight, where I share my recipe adventures and the tasty bites of life. I'm a mom to four spunky kids, a wife to an amazing husband, and a lover of all things food. I discovered a love of cooking and baking after I made the leap to become a stay-at-home-mom when my oldest child turned one. What started as a duty to feed my family has turned into a love of creating good food for my favorite people, picky eaters and all! I love creating and sharing recipes, and feeding everyone that walks through our door... and if you don't come to me, I might just leave it on your doorstep!

Culinary Mamas

info:
Kristen Edwards and Camille Yocum are the co-creators of Culinary Mamas. They grew up together in a suburb of Chicago and have been best friends since making a gigantic chocolate chip cookie in the seventh grade. Their blog features decadent and healthy recipes, foods from Poland to Mexico, India to Thailand. They want their kids to form healthy attitudes about food and so they try their hardest to get their kids to eat like grown-ups, most of the time.

Haley

close
info:
Growing up in Idaho, I spent nearly all of my time outdoors. After marrying my childhood BFF and having three kids in 2 years, I lived in my pajamas and almost never left the house. I found myself looking for hobbies to fill my spare time. With the inspiration of some awesome blogs, I started crafting, planning parties and learned how to sew, decorate cakes, and lots more. Eight years later I am almost thirty and still find myself crafting, baking, cooking and planning little parties for my family and friends!
