Today, Amy is a writer, editor, and recipe developer.

And she runs Yummy Family Food (yummyfamilyfood.com), which aims to help families of all kinds eat well without spending hours cooking in the kitchen—or stressing over whether they’re doing it all perfectly.
Amy’s mission is to encourage and inspire readers through realistic cooking advice and easy recipes that taste great, are easy to prepare, and are made with healthy, yet accessible ingredients that are easy for anyone to find—no matter where they might live.
She aims to reassure families that they can prepare healthy food that everyone at the table will enjoy. And to inspire parents to take small steps to improve their families health through food—which is why she’s so committed to healthier desserts and snacks since everyone loves treats!—without losing their minds in the kitchen.
