Today’s spotlight is Mandy from Gourmet Mom on the Go.
Mandy is a divalicious mom with three small girls and one very hungry husband! Her passions are cooking and music. She has a Masters Degree in Vocal Performance and spent several years as a professional opera singer before she decided to stay home full time with her kids. She still sings every day (usually in the kitchen!). She loves gourmet cooking but in her words, “with a busy family, let’s get real. We usually need things that are simple, fun, and delicious!”
With three small kids Mandy specializes in making food FUN so your picky eaters will be excited to eat! Mandy loves creating fun treats for parties and school. She loves posting her whimsical recipes hoping that her blog readers can be the “fun house—you know, the one all the kids want to visit because you have cool food!” Most important, she always tries to make her kitchen place full of fun, singing, and LOVE! Happy cooking!
